Mailbox Monday - 6/22/15

 
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.

I had a record week.

I thought I was at the BEA.  :)

  19. Hi Elizabeth,

    Wow! that certainly was a bumper week. At least you have your summer reading all planned out!

    Quite a few of your selection have appeared on other sites this week, but you had a couple of unique titles which caught my eye ... 'The Tide Watchers' and 'Darkness The Color Of Snow', both of which I shall be on the lookout for!

    It seems like ages since we last spoke, I just don't know where the time has gone to!

    I hope that all is as well as it can be for you and that you manage to sit in the sunshine sometimes, with your feet up and agood book by your side :)

    Yvonne
