Mail Box Monday June 1st.

Hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page.

Check out her post and all the participants. You will get to view a lot of incoming new books and get a lot of feedback. I love Mailbox Monday because it starts the week off with BOOK BUZZ!!!!

This week I got a copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society from Random house. It is a paperback copy. Kind of nice. I bought the book in hard cover. (Do I smell a giveaway?) I do think so! I just have to decide which one I want to keep.. the one I bought used, hard cover.. or the spanking new tidy little cool paperback. Decisions.. Decisions.

This is what I got last week.

I got One Deadly Sin, Annie Solomonn from a Hachette Giveaway on a blog that will get special mention soon... I am having a momentary lapse of memory. I am so sorry about that. You know how you want to win a book and then you enter a few places.... and then you WIN!!.. and it all becomes a blur?? I have that email saved and I will make special mention some day SOON!!

Alas.. Here is where I won the book!! So Many Books, So Little Time. Thank you so much!!! Check out her blog!!

I felt like I got more books this week... humm..... but I am looking around and don't see more in the pile. I sort of covet the new comers by my bed... like being a little girl and wanting to sleep in new shiny pink or red shoes. Awh the simple things.. I am like that with books.. I kind of want to take them with me too. Awh.. good times!!

Decisions, decisions. The lure of the brand-spanking new copy might prove to be too much for you :)

That's very cool that you got the paperback version. I don't own a copy, so I may be haunting your blog until I see the giveaway. ;)

I love the picture of Barry BTW!

I have the Guernsey book hanging around here somewhere. I think mine is a paperback but I could be wrong.

I really enjoyed Guernsey and got a chance to speak with Annie Barrows at BEA. Happy reading! My mailbox is here.
