Mailbox Monday - 1/2/2017

 
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 administrators:

Thanks, Katie.

On Friday, December 30, I received:

  11. Hi Elizabeth,

    Your two books this week, seem to be doing the blogging rounds, although I'm not too sure that either of them would be for me through choice!

    'The Things We Keep' does sound intriguing, but given my FIL steadily deteriorating condition as a result of the disease, it just doesn't seem appropriate to be reading it right now, it's a bit too close to home for comfort!

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that 2017 turns out to be a good year for you :)

    1. Yes...lots of bloggers have received The Almost Sisters.

      I agree that The Things We Keep would be difficult for you. It was difficult for me when I read it.

      I I hope 2017 is a great year for you too.

      Thanks for stopping, Yvonne,
