The Story Siren and The Printed Page ("In My Mailbox"/"Mailbox Monday"). Thanks to any fellow participants who stop by The Calico Critic! I'll do my best to get around to as many of your sites as I can this week-- leave a link!
Here's what has arrived since February 28th:
The B&B Media Group came Good Game: Christianity and the Culture of Sports by Shirl J. Hoffman. While I wouldn't consider myself to be a sports fanatic, I am a Christian who enjoys watching them from time to time. It'll be interesting to see how many of Hoffman's conclusions I agree with. My college hoops-fan husband is going to take a look, too!
Tuesday, March 2nd - Thanks to the folks at Jane Austen Today, I won Marsha Altman's Pride and Prejudice Continues series, a three-book set. When they arrived, I was surprised at how substantial they were. These are not slim titles that I could finish in one sitting. I can't wait to dive in!
Wednesday, March 3rd - Portal and matching bookmark, sent to me by author Imogen Rose. I'm a sucker for time shift/alternate dimension stories. This one is going to be fun!
Brigid of Kildare by Heather Terrell for the Amazon Vine reviewers program, in a plain-Jane galley, sans this gorgeous cover art.
The Devil and Sherlock Holmes - Galley from Random House/Doubleday
Thursday, March 4th - Angelology by Danielle Trussoni for the Amazon Vine reviewers program. I'm SO glad this one is in the "must read" pile, because I really want to get to it! I have to review it for Amazon, otherwise it would just be in the "want to read" pile!
Friday, March 5th -Thanks to the folks at MomStart.com, I won a copy of the BBC's Emma on DVD. When it aired recently, I taped it on my scratchy old VCR and I was going to watch it soon. I'm so glad to have the superior DVD instead!
An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor is a book I requested through my daily Shelf Awareness email. I'd actually forgotten about it, so it was a treat when it came in. The binding of the book was really nice for a paperback, which included a lovely card stock cover sleeve to slide over it, just like alot of DVD covers have these days. So nice!
Saturday, March 6th - I found a copy of The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley in The Vero Beach Book Center's used book section. Jane Greensmith turned me on to this title last year after she kept tweeting quotes from it. After checking it out from the library several times, I decided that it was time to have my own copy. Now, to finish it!
Thanks for stopping by!
