Mailbox Monday August 19, 2013

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
For AUGUST: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is Bermudaonion (thanks Kathy).
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 received two print books for review, two print for survey and I picked up the final free audio titles from SYNC YA. 

Are your mailbox and TBR piles blooming?

  3. Jill Mansell is an author I'm always hearing great things about. I've yet to reading anything by her, but knowing she's British and write Chick Lit, makes me think I'd really enjoy her.
