Mailbox Monday December 30, 2013

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs.  This Meme started with Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (fka The Printed Page) but is now hosted at Mailbox Monday and through various blog hosts.
For DECEMBER: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is Gilion @ Rose City Reader

[It looks like the idea now is to return Mailbox Monday to its permanent home, so check back there next week to make your first MM post of the New Year.]

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

No review titles but I received three books as Christmas gifts and a package of lovely chocolates from a blog friend! 

Are your mailbox and TBR piles blooming?

These are the wonderful books from my son and daughter-in-law - now I just have to get my DH to help cook with this in mind and I have to set up a fitness regime for the New Year!

Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Miki!


None this week.


I did purchase a couple of Kindle books at $.99 but it would take too long to figure out which ones of  those downloaded I actually purchased. :-)


I managed to find 90 (Yikes!) Kindle titles to download this week - some through Rachel at Bitten by Books who linked up a list of paranormals and others linked through Bookbub, Bookfun, Free Par-tayInspired Reads, Pixel of Ink or Kindle ebooks.
