Mailbox Monday - 2/23/09

Thanks to Paperbackswap and Dewey, my TBR pile is bigger than it was two weeks ago. Since I was on break last week I didn't write a Mailbox Monday post, so here's what I received in the last two weeks.




































  • Angel of Forgetfulness - Steve Stern (Jewish Literature Challenge)
  • Because I said so: 33 mothers write about children, sex, men, aging, faith, race, and themselves (Dewey challenge)
  • What I talk about when I talk about running- Hariku Murakami (In their shoes challenge)
  • Flygirl - Sherri L. Smith (Y.A. challenge)
  • The World to Come - Dara Horn (Jewish Lit.)
  • The Victoria Vanishes - John Fowler (Just loved the cover of the title. I'll fit it into a challenge somewhere)
  • Jesus Swept -James Protzman (loved the synopsis)
  • Confessions of a Former Child - David Tomasulo (loved the synopsis)
  • The Maternal is Political - Shari MacDonald Strong (Dewey challenge)
  • Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson (Childhood Favourites challenge)
So that's it until tomorrow. I only have a handful of books coming this week. What did you receive last week?

Wow - what a lovely collection of books. I bet you don't know which one to start with first.

N.Vasillis said...

You're right, I have no idea what to read first!

Kailana said...

Wow! Lots of good good books there. Happy reading!

What a great list of books! The cover of Confessions of a Former child grabbed my attention! I love Emily Dickinson's poems and hope that you enjoy them.

Beth F said...

Great list!! I want to read Flygirl.

Iliana said...

I didn't know Murakami had a memoir. How interesting. Now to decide which one to start! :)

Liz said...

Thanks for including Jesus Swept in your "to read" pile. The list gave me a flashback to Wind Up Bird Chronicle.

Yummmmmmmmmm.

James Protzman

PS Sorry. I've been writing as Liz lately.

Thanks, Kailana!

Thanks, Bonnie. The Emily Dickinson is the exact same book I read when I was thirteen, so I'll be traveling back to my childhood when I read it.

Beth: I can't wait to read Flygirl! I've heard nothing but great things about it!

Iliana: I should let you guys pick for me. Murakami's book is a small one. I think I'll save it for a weekend read.

Thanks, James, for visiting 1330v! I can't wait to read your book. I promise it'll be soon. Liz, huh? =)

Looking forward to your reviews for the Jewish Literature Challenge and Dewey's books.

The Maternal Is Political sounds really good! Enjoy your books.

Kristen said...

I want to read Confessions of a Former Child too. It sounds wonderful.

I got What I Talk About When I Talk About Running for Christmas and jumped into it immediately. What a marvelous book! I've been pushing it at all my reading runner friends (which is a shockingly small number actually) but I haven't made the leap to non-runners yet as I don't know that they would like it nearly as much as crazy running folk. :-)

Because I Said So was another one I've read (a few years ago?) and thoroughly enjoyed.

Enjoy your haul!

You got some good ones - I'd love to read Flygirl, Because I Said So and The World to Come.
