Mailbox Monday ~ September 15th

CardinalMailboxAutumnWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

Autumn has definitely arrived here in the Midwest with shorter days and chilly nights, but my flowers and most of the garden are hanging in there and still look good. There should be a few more weeks for my books to pose with the blooms before moving on to pumpkins and falling leaves.

Some short stories and a small art book arrived this week. Short is good as I had another busy week with little extra time for reading or writing.

New Arrivals


Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them by Isaac Fitzgerald and Wendy MacNaughton from Bloomsbury through Amazon Vine.
Every tattoo tells a story, whether the ink is meaningful or the result of a misguided decision made at the age of fourteen, representative of the wearer’s true self or the accidental consequence of a bender.

A Brief Moment of Weightlessness by Victoria Fish from TLC Tours.
A collection of short stories that illuminate the beauty and extraordinariness of “ordinary” lives. Each explores the human desire for connectedness and grace.

A Good Marriage by Stephen King from Simon & Schuster Audio.
Bob Anderson, Darcy’s husband of more than twenty years, is away on one of his business trips, when his unsuspecting wife looks for batteries in the garage.

How was your week?

    The blurb for A Good Marriage has me curious.

    When I first saw your picture of the Stephen King book I got all excited thinking it might be a new one or one I hadn’t heard of. Then I realised that I’ve already read it! It was included in a collection of novellas that I read last year and I remember liking it. I think the collection was called Full Dark, No Stars.I hope you enjoy it. Here’s my MM.

      Yes, it’s from Full Dark, No Stars… one of the King books I haven’t read yet. It’s going to be a movie so I wanted to read, or listen, to it first.

    I like the look of A Good Marriage. Your flowers look beautiful 🙂

      Thanks. Flowers are hanging in there despite the shorter days.

    Your arrangement looks beautiful! I like the idea of Pen & Ink. So many kids have gotten so many tattoos. It makes me wonder why. Enjoy all of your books.

    I’ll wait to hear what the wife finds in the garage in The Good Marriage, but I may not read it. Too scary maybe. Your books of short stories are interesting.

    I am curious about A Good Marriage, and heard it’s going to be a movie. Thanks for sharing and enjoy. Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST

    Great list of books, the tattoo book and the short stories sounds great.

    Leslie, I will soon begin reading A Brief Moment of Weightlessness for the tour. Pen & Ink and A Good Marriage both sound very good. Enjoy your reading this week!

    I got A Good Marriage too. It will be my first foray in a traditional King story.


  10. Lucy / Sep 15 2014 2:45 pm

    Pen & Ink caught my eye! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the King audio. Happy reading and listening!


  11. mary Ann Langan / Sep 15 2014 3:02 pm

    A Good Marriage sounds intriguing.


  12. Vicki / Sep 15 2014 4:01 pm

    Love me some King, so A Good Marriage is definitely one I want to read!!


  13. diane / Sep 15 2014 6:20 pm

    Cool titles; looking forward to A Good Marriage.

    Even though I don’t like Stephen King, I like the looks of A Good Marriage. Love the bloody tea towel. 🙂 Wonder what’s with the batteries?

    ENJOY your week.
