In My Mailbox

May 23, 2010

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie.

Every week (or skipping some, depending on how frequently new books enter my life!), I’ll be posting on Sundays about what books I got, from all sources – bought, borrowed, exchanged, etc.

Purchased from

  1. The Wars by Timothy Findley
  2. Farmer Jane: Women Who are Changing the Way We Eat by Temra Costa
  3. Little Blog on the Prairie by Cathleen Davitt Bell
  4. The Bibliophile’s Devotional: 365 Days of Literary Classics by Hallie Ephron
  5. The Arab Table: Recipes and Culinary Traditions by May S. Bsisu
  6. Memories of Muhammad: Why the Prophet Matters by Omid Safi
  7. Houseworks by Cynthia Townley Ewer

Review copy from LibraryThing Early Reviewers:

  1. The War Memoirs of (HRH) Wallis Duchess of Windsor by Kate Auspitz

    Nice mix! I must say though…the LITTLE BLOG ON THE PRAIRIE title definitely gave me a chuckle (fun/funny title) but is also the 2nd or third time I’ve recently seen this cover around the blogosphere. Curious to see a review on it…
    Thanks for sharing….and happy reading! ^_^

    Cool bunch of books. Especially The Arab Table. That looks great. And I love the Bibliophile’s Devotional!
