Mailbox Monday October 8, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
FOR OCTOBER: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is (updated) 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.

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

I added some giveaway books and free books this week. How about you?

Review Titles

I accepted and requested a few new titles this week but didn't receive any yet.


No new book wins received last week although I should have one coming in this week.

I did purchase a box of books at a yard sale on Saturday - 16 books for $5.00.  I forgot to get a picture but there are some good titles. :-)  Some are for me and some for my Friday Pick Giveaways.
One was the paper back copy of Everybody Loved Roger Harden which I am reading this week for Ladies' Book Club. Since we have the Anthology, Everybody's Suspect in Georgia, I will give the paperback away at my review post.


I received as a free gift from the author:
Double Trouble by Betty Sullivan
Check the author's website for links to free downloads of the first and second titles.

{This reminded me that I want to read the first book in the series, The Enemy Stalks, so I will add that to my November review list as my Won book and Just For Fun read.}

I picked up some free titles on Kindle again.


  1. 16 books for $5 is a great deal. Enjoy all your new reads!

  2. 16 books for 5 bucks is a bargain! Enjoy!

  3. Have a good week and enjoy all your books.

  4. Double Trouble piques my curiosity. Enjoy your reads....and here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

  5. You hot the jackpot at the yard sale! Happy reading!

  6. I wish I had time to visit yard sales, I would love to score some books! Enjoy your reads! Here is my Monday post.

  7. Hi Martha,

    Thanks for the tip about 'Double Trouble', I really liked the sound of this one, so I stopped by Betty's site and took the free download option to my PC.

    I do hope that I don't need to read book one to get the gist of who's who and what is going on, but as we are now up to book 14 in the series, I guess I shall have plenty of time to catch up!

    I hope that you enjoy all of your bargain books, that must be the deal of the year!


  8. Double Trouble looks interesting.

  9. Wow...yard sales are an awesome way to add to the TBR! Enjoy!

    Thanks for stopping by my Added to the Bookshelf post!
