Mailbox Monday ~ October 13th

FloralFallMailbox-smlWelcome 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.


Last week I received mostly audiobooks, which is good since lately I’ve been doing much more listening than reading. I’ve been spending a lot of time working at the computer the past few weeks and my eyes are, apparently, demanding a rest. When I do sit down to read in the evening, I often fall asleep!

I planted a little pumpkin patch at the edge of my garden this summer using the seeds from one of last year’s gourds. I got lots of vines and flowers, but only three little pumpkins.

New Arrivals


The Children Act by Ian McEwan from Recorded Books and LibraryThing.

Who have YOU hugged today? Open your arms to this delightfully tender, goofy, and sweet tale.

    Your pumpkins look great! The Children Act sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy all of your new books.

    I bet the audiobook of You is super creepy. Good listening for Halloween (it’s a great story; twisted, but great).

      I’m listening to and reading creepy stories this month for RIP IX, so twisted sounds good! I already loaded it onto my mp3 player.

    Gorgeous display with the pumpkins…and I am tempted by some of your books. I already have The Children Act…can’t wait to read it. I have mixed feelings about You, but keep returning to its Amazon page. Hug Machine looks adorable. Thanks for sharing…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    The Children Act is on my Wish List already. It sounds great! And I haven’t heard of that Stephen King book. Enjoy!

    Your pumpkins look great. I would love to be able to get some audiobooks for free. That would be a wonderful thing for me. I love try and review audio-books.
