Wow! You had quite a week! I was hoping to get The Only True Genius... but haven't yet and I love Debbie Macomber. I did read the Twilight series and liked it. I didn't love it but I probably would have if I was a teenager. I didn't get many last week but they look like fun. My list is here. Hope you have a great week!

Great week you had :)
My first ever mailbox Monday so I am looking at blogs :)

Did read Twilight, and the 1st book was cute, the last one ok. Can't call her a great author but they are fun to read.

Wow! Excellent week! I have the first three Twilight books, but haven't read them yet. I didn't even see the movie yet. They do look wonderful, though.

Mary said...

Wow! Lucky you! Good thing you made room by sending so many out. You received such a good variety. My mailbox is up.

Kaye said...

Holy penguins! What a week you had. I'd like to get that Debbie Macomber one too. You must have had a busy week wrapping books up for shipment.


My mailbox is here

Kathrin said...

Now that is a list of books that entered your home!!! Enjoy them :-)

That's a heck of a list. I'm looking forward to the Debbie Macomber book

Thanks so much for recommending my book, First Art. If someone wants to see sample pages from the book, go to my website, and then to "Free Activities".

I have sample pages from all of the books I have written so people can try them out.

I love your blog! Good job!

Cathy said...

You certainly had quite a haul last week, Wendi--and congratulations on the 42 OUT!

purplg8r said...

I would LOVE to have the Twilight boxed set...lucky you!

avisannschild said...

Wow, you got rid of 42 books? Good for you! I'm looking forward to your review of The Only True Genius in the Family (which I reviewed recently). Happy reading!

Bluestocking said...

Thanks for dropping by!

Staci said...

You sent out 42 books????!!! WoW!!

Your mailbox was full of wonderful stuff!! I saw several books that I would love to get my hands on...especially A Homemade Life and the Only True Genius...look forward to your reviews!

Wendy said...

Wow - what a haul! I also got Jennie Nash's book :)

Mo from Unmainstream Mom Reads said...

You got some great books! I can't believe you sent out 42 books in one week - wow! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier :)

shelburns said...

Wow! What a week. I'm jealous of the early childhood books; look like good ones.

Kara said...

What a fantastic haul of books!! Enjoy reading them.

I have only read the first book in the Twilight series - but enjoyed it very much. I need to get the other books.

I haven't tried Debbie Macomber yet - but I do have a bunch of her books in my TBR pile.

Thanks for visiting my blog!!!

Jeane said...

That's an amazing lot of books. So many great ones for kids.

Penny said...

I am so jealous of the fact that you got 18 books sent to you in just one week!

Mind you I don't envy you having to package up another 42 and as for the postage costs ... well that must have cost you an absolute fortune to send all those out.

Kathrin said...

I just saw that you said you hadn't read any of Tess Gerritsen's books yet - I can only recommend them!!!

bermudaonion said...

I'm very impressed that you got rid of more than you took in. You had another great week!

Marcia said...

Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. You had a great book week. Enjoy! 'Palace Circle' is yours and should be there in a week or two.

Anna said...

Boy, you sure gave a lot away. Now you have room for more books. ;P I probably should start finding homes for some of my books, but I have a hard time parting with them.

You had a busy week book-wise, lots of variety. Happy reading!
