Mailbox Monday ~ August 31st

Butterfly-PinkFlower_Mailbox56392Welcome 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.

I finally got my new laptop working, so no more computer wars and freeze-ups. I ended up deleting the entire partition and installing a fresh copy of Windows – the restore partition was also corrupted – and then installing all the drivers for my system. Never did figure out what was causing the conflict. And although they were very nice, tech support was little to no help.

Anyway, a pretty unexciting week for me. No strange bug attacks in the garden and I’m enjoying the last of the long days and eating dinner outdoors on the deck.

One new book and a few audio downloads arrived . . .

New Arrivals


Hostile Takeover by Shane Kuhn from Wunderkind PR.
Professional assassin John Lago faces off against his deadliest adversary yet—his wife—in Hostile Takeover, the exciting sequel to Shane Kuhn’s bestselling debut The Intern’s Handbook, which the New York Post called “a sexy, darkly comic thriller.”

Audio Downloads

From Penguin Random House Audio


One Hundred Days of Happiness by Fausto Brizzi.
What would you do if you knew you only had 100 days left to live? For Lucio Battistini, it’s a chance to spend the rest of his life the way he always should have – by making every moment count.

Make Me: A Jack Reacher Novel by Lee Child.
“Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” That’s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.

    Glad your new laptop is working (yikes). We had such cool temps the past week but now that schools will be back in session tomorrow the humidity and heat is returning – more time to eat on the deck 🙂 Have a good week and enjoy your new books.

    Yeah, tech support is generally not much help – I’m glad you figured things out. Enjoy your new books.

    So glad you got the laptop working, but it sounds like you had to do it all on your own…tech support can definitely be worthless!

    Enjoy the outdoor dinners…love the flowers in your book display.

    I am curious about Hostile Takeover….have a wonderful week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    100 Days of Happiness looks interesting. And if I knew it was 100 I’d be eating lots of donuts too 🙂
