Mailbox Monday - 11/7/16

 
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week.

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.

My mailbox was empty again, but I am fine with that fact.

ENJOY this week of reading, and thanks for stopping.

  1. I am almost finished with a book I received in my mailbox the week before.

    It is very good...THE SECRETS YOU KEEP by Kate White.

    I hope you had an overflowing mailbox, and if you didn't, I hope you have found something wonderful to read from your shelves.

    Thanks for stopping.

    1. It is fun to get books, but I agree an empty mailbox is a good thing too.

      As long as the books I want to read are popping in my mailbox from time to time, I am happy. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

  4. I do enjoy an empty mailbox...especially if it means fewer review books. I am feeling caught up at the moment.

    Enjoy reading your own books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I love reviewing books, but it does get overwhelming when there are so many waiting.

      I am pretty caught up too. Feels nice.

      Thanks for stopping, Laurel.

  8. I've only been accepting a few books here and there for review, so my mailbox has been empty a lot this year. But, I'm ok with that too!

    1. The same here...not accepting as many books.

      I also spread them out so I am not stressed about getting my review promise done.

      Thanks for stopping, Vicki.

  9. And you thought that my book this week was scary !!

    'The Secrets You Keep' sounds brilliant and I can't believe that I haven't come across this author before.

    Luckily, this is a stand alone story, so adding it to my list works fine.

    I hope that you are enjoying the read and I can't wait to see what your final thoughts are.

    Thanks for bringing the author to my attention and have a good week :)

    1. I just finished The Secrets You Keep. Excellent.

      Oh yes....I loved Scotland and especially The Isle of Skye.

      My header is a photo I took in Portree, Scotland.

      Thanks for stopping, Mary M.

    1. My week is good so far, thanks.

      I have been slowing down on requesting books so I am not too disappointed in my empty mailbox.

      Thanks for stopping, Martha.

  12. I think books are our addiction. Even though I'm okay with an empty mailbox, I still feel disappointed when I don't find a package in it!!

    1. Yes...it is disappointing, but I have slowed down on requesting books so it is to be expected. :)

      I cannot pass up a book I KNOW I will love, though. I definitely request that one. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Laura.

  13. Bookless mailboxes are great for catching up, I have no problem with that (though they rarely do happen, ha!)
    I wish you a great week, in reading and everything else!
