Mailbox Monday - 3/18/2013

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do).    

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books, is on a blog tour! 

The host for March is:

I am going out of town Friday, March 22, and most likely will not be posting a Mailbox Monday for March  25 or April 1.  

I may be able to comment, though.

I include the books from those dates in my Mailbox Monday when I return.

I had a full mailbox this week.  Four print copies and two e-books.  Most of the books were contest wins.  :)

On Monday, March 11, I received:

1.   THE PARADISE GUEST HOUSE by Ellen Sussman, courtesy of  Random House Reader's Circle and Library Thing Giveaways.

On  Thursday, March 14, I received:

1.  FLORA by Gail Goodwin, courtesy of Bloomsbury Publishing and Megan Ernst.  This e-book was a win from a Shelf Awareness Giveaway. 


2.  CUPID'S CHRISTMAS by Bette Lee Crosby, courtesy of the author.  This e-book was a win from Ms. Crosby's March Madness Treasure Hunt Giveaways.


3.  THE BURGESS BOYS by Elizabeth Strout, courtesy of The Random House Publishing Group and Library Thing Giveaways.


On  Saturday, March 16, I received:

1.  CTRL Z by Danika Stone, courtesy of the author.

2.  THE EDGE OF THE EARTH by Christina Schwarz, courtesy of Diana Franco of Simon & Schuster.

  2. Flora sounds like a good read.

  3. I am here after SO long! Good to find a great mailbox! Hope you enjoy all your books!

  4. And my wishlist grows and grows.

    Only one new book for me this week. That's a good sign. I'm getting better. ;-)

  5. The Burgess Boys looks interesting, a lot of good reading ahead.

  6. Love the cover of The Paradise Guest House. Happy reading, Elizabeth!

  7. They all look good, especially the first 2. Hope you enjoy them!

  8. Ooh, these all look sooo good! The new Gail Godwin is a definite "must read." Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your time away.

  9. The Paradise Guest House caught my eye. Hope you enjoy your books!

  10. I have the Paradise Guesthouse from Netscape and only a limited time to read. I think there was a movie based on the book, which I have seen on TV. Hope you like it.

  11. Congrats on your wins. All your books look fantastic. Enjoy!

  12. Hi Elizabeth,

    A great diversity of books this week, you must be pleased.

    'The Paradise Guest House' and 'Flora' caught my eye, although both the authors are new to me.

    Well done on so many of them being 'wins', that in itself makes the read so much more satisfying, don't you think?

    Enjoy your trip,


  13. You got great books this week. Happy reading!
    And have a great trip :)

  14. I've heard good things about The Burgess Boys, and the rest look interesting, have a great trip.

  15. Flora looks awesome!

  16. Great books! I had the pleasure of reviewing Cupid's Christmas for Bette during the holidays and it was such a sweet book. I hope you enjoy it and all your wins. Congrats, by the way!

  17. Paradise Guest House looks interesting. I hope they are all great reads. Very nice mailbox!

  18. Flora and The Burgess Boys sound really good but there are others that caught my eye as well. I haven't posted my mailbox for awhile so I did a catch up post: I haven't posted my mailbox for awhile so I did a catch up post:
