Mailbox Monday - Did You Have A Full Mailbox? - 6/16/14

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, has a permanent home now at Mailbox Monday.

Every week Mailbox Monday will have a new linky posted for our Mailbox Monday links at Marcia's Mailbox Monday blog.

Here’s a shout out to the new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree 
Vicki of I’d Rather Be at the Beach
Serena @ Savvy Verse And Wit 

THANKS to everyone for keeping Mailbox Monday alive. 


I hope you had a good mailbox.  


How many books did you receive this week? 

I am happy with one book - my son is coming home this week with all my BEA BOOKS.  :)

A strange thing happened yesterday.  I received an empty envelope from a publisher that should have had a book in it.  Somehow the book must have fallen out of the package.

Has that ever happened to anyone?

On Monday, June 9, I received:

1.  FREUD'S MISTRESS by Karen Mack and Jennifer Kaufman courtesy of Danielle Dill and Leslie Schwartz of Penguin Group.


  1. How about that empty envelope that was to contain a book?

    Thanks for stopping everyone.

    Have a great week.

  2. I have gotten an empty envelope before but it was was ripped. You should let whoever sent it know. Enjoy your son's visit!

  3. That would make me so crazy to get an empty envelope! Enjoy Freud's mistress!

  4. I am very curious, Denise, about what was to be in there. :)

    I will solve the mystery.

    THANKS for stopping.

  5. I have contacted the publisher, and hopefully they will shed some light on what book was to be in the envelope. :)

    Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

  6. I once called the publisher whose tel no and name was on the return address. They send a replacement for the one lost.

  7. Freud's Mistress looks quite intriguing! And, just wait until you get all those books from BEA! I'm hoping to go next year...this Spring I had my oldest graduating from college and then my next son graduated from high school during BEA.

  8. Thanks, Harvee.

    The mystery has been solved. They are sending another book.

    THANKS for stopping.

  9. It was a busy time for you during the BEA this year.

    Yes...I hope you can go next year. It is a great experience and so much fun. Meeting other bloggers is the BEST part. :)

    Oh yes on the BEA books my son is bringing. I already have the shelves ready. :) :)

    Thanks for stopping, Kimberly.

  10. Freud's Mistress looks good and I do hope you get the replacement.

  11. Empty envelope is too bad!

    Freud's Mistress sounds good!

    Happy reading!

    Here is my post.

  12. I'm glad the publisher will send another book. An empty envelope seems rather suspect! Can't wait to hear about your BEA books!

  13. I talked to the publisher today, and they are going to send out a replacement.

    Thanks for stopping, Mystica.

  14. guatami....I agree.

    One good thing and one bad thing. :)

    Thanks for stopping.

  15. I think the envelope wasn't sealed and the book just flew out in transit.

    Thanks for stopping, Mary.

  16. No empty envelopes, but definitely totally destroyed envelopes that enclosed a really messed up book.

    The book you did receive looks interesting. Nice cover art.

  17. Not sure what happens during the mail delivery.

    Most books arrive in perfect condition. Must have been a fluke that it slipped out of the package.

    Thanks for stopping, Cheryl.

  18. I've never had an empty envelope in my mailbox, but I did receive a book that was bent all out of shape. It was a hardback too! I took pictures and sent them to the publisher. They sent me another book. Still have no idea what happened to it, but I kept it and it's displayed in my library.
    Even people who don't read are interested in that book!

  19. glad you are getting another book. I hope the person who got/stole it (?) enjoyed it!

  20. LOL on the interest in the bent book. That is quite interesting how a hardback book was bent.

    Great you kept it as a coversational piece. :)

    THANKS for stopping, Vicki.

  21. I think it wasn't sealed and it fell out, but it has to be laying around somewhere. :)

    THANKS for stopping, Emma.

  22. I've been lucky - no empty envelopes or chewed up books. Hopefully someone is enjoying your lost book while you await your replacement copy! (Can't wait to see those BEA books.)

  23. I just think the envelope wasn't sealed properly.

    I have a photo of my BEA books on another post, and my books will arrive on my birthday. :)

    Here is the link to the BEA book photo.

    THANKS so much for stopping by, Leslie.

  24. I received the "MISSING" book today.

    I LOVE Sourcebooks.

    Thanks Liz and Lisa for a prompt sending of the book.
