Mailbox Monday - 5/6/13

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 May is:

4 The LOVE of Books

On Monday, April 29, I received:

1.  THE BUTTERFLY SISTER by Amy Gail Hansen, courtesy of HarperCollins Publishers and a Shelf Awareness Giveaway.

Don't you just LOVE the cover?  It looks like secrets are locked away inside this book.  :)


On Thursday, May 2, I received:

1.  THE OTHER TYPIST by Suzanne Rindell, courtesy of Lydia Hirt of Amy EinhornBooks/Putnam.

I am really excited about this book because as you all know I am a retired typing teacher and spout the IMPORTANCE of knowing how to type.  It is as important as reading if you ask me. 

I HAD to start reading this is AWESOME!!!  I love it already!!  

On Friday, May , I received:

1.  NORTH OF SUPPOSED TO BE by Marcia Ferguson, courtesy of the author.

  5. The Butterfly Sister and the Other Typist both look very good!

  6. Both sounds very good! Enjoy!

  7. Great books! You're right about the cover of The Butterfly Sister. It made me want to pick up the book to read what it's about.

  8. You're right, The Butterfly Sister cover is freakin' amazing. Enjoy your books. :)


  9. They all sound very interesting, I will definitely have a look at "The Other Typist", didn't know you were a teacher, I looked into that once.

    I received two new German books this week "The Magic Mountain" (Der Zauberberg) by Thomas Mann and "Die hellen Tage" by Zsuzsa Bánk

  10. This sounds like a very fun idea!!! I'm expecting a couple books any day now so I'll participate on the corresponding Monday :)
    Thank you so much for the follow, I'm following you back!

  11. I've heard good things about The Other Typist - hope you enjoy it!

  12. Hi Elizabeth,

    I am keeping very quiet about my typing abilities now I know that you were a teacher!!

    My skills have ben honed somewhat since I started blogging, but professional standard I most certainly am not!

    I really like the look and sound of the Marcia Ferguson book. I was intrigued to know more about the author and very envious when I discovered that she had worked in a college bookstore.

    Retail and books, my dream job combination, Alas, I have passed the magic 50th birthday and despite the 'no age discrimination' employment legislation, I seem to be designated as 'on the scrap heap'!

    Enjoy all of your books and please don't judge the typo's too harshly,


  13. Looks like some good ones. Enjoy!

  14. The Other Typist, in particular, sounds so intriguing.

    Enjoy your new books, and happy reading.

  15. You got some good ones! I love the cover of The Butterfly Sister.

    Have a great week and thanks for visiting me today. =O)

  16. I have The Other Typist in audio. I've already seen good reviews so I moved it near the top of the pile.

    When I took a typing class many years ago (so I could type my college papers) I never realized how important a skill it would be today!

  17. I am LOVING The Other Typist.

    My review will be up tonight or tomorrow.

    Thanks for stopping by everyone.
