Mailbox Monday 1/4/2010

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. It is a great way to share what books came into your home in the previous week.

Happy New Year and here is my mailbox from TWO weeks.

I won a Virtual Poetry Package from Savvy Verse and Wit and I have been having little packages arrive for the past few weeks. Talk about a huge treat. Thank you Serena.

The books I received are:

Poet Lore, a magazine of The Writer's Center in Bethesda, Md.
Carta Marina by Ann Fisher Wirth
Green Bodies by Rosemary Winslow
The Complete Poems of John Keats
- Nice hard cover addition
Fair Creatures of an Hour by Lynn Levin

John Amen's More of Me Disappears

I am so pleased to add these books to my poetry collection. I left a few comments on Serena's Virtual Poetry Circle. I was tickled as can be to have won. You should check it out. Sometimes I feel a bit inferior to comment on a poem, but it really is fun and no pressure at all.

From Algonquin Books - A Reliable Wife, by Robert Goolrick. (I started it this weekend... so check back for a review. Don't forget to check out my ARC giveaway)

From Amy at Passages to the Past - Her Mother's Daughter by Julianne Lee. Thank you Amy!!

I got my vogue knitting magazine in the mail also. I do read it and it is a delicious treat.

Have a great week everyone.

The poetry package looks wonderful. It's always fun to receive packages in the mail and getting them seperately must have been fun! I haven't read The Reliable Wife and it's been on my wishlist.

I hope you enjoy the poetry! I think there is one more book coming your way!
