Mailbox Monday – September 1, 2008

It has been like Christmas this week at my house. I’ve gotten some great books…

Guernica, by Dave Boling – This was completely unexpected as Bloomsbury had earlier sent me an Advance Readers Edition of this book…but this was a finished hard cover! I need to read Guernica very soon so that I can post a giveaway of my ARE here on my blog. Watch for my review and give-away sometime in the next month.

The UPS truck delivered a heavy package to my door on Friday from Miriam at Little, Brown and Company. Inside were these wonderful books:

Say You’re One of Them, by Uwem Akpan (a collection of short stories set in Africa)

An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination, by Elizabeth McCracken (a memoir)

The Road Home, by Rose Tremain (the Orange Prize Winner for 2008)

and finally…

The Heretic’s Daughter, by Kathleen Kent which was sent to me to give away on my blog (this is a finished hard cover edition). I will be reading my ARE of this book very, very soon and posting information about how you can win the hard cover edition of this newly released novel here on my blog. Stay tuned!

    Wow, what a lovely bunch of books you received this week! Some there I’d like to read. I’ll especially be looking for your Heretic’s Daughter giveaway. I put a request in for it on SA but I didn’t get the book so maybe this time I’ll be lucky. If you’ll be shipping to Canada that is!

  1. I received the hardcover edition of Guernica, too – but I think I’m more selfish than you, cause I’m giving away my ARC and keeping the hardcover. 🙂

    Nicola: I will be opening my giveaway to Canada and the US (for both books).

    Carrie: Oh, I’m selfish too – read my post again…I’m giving away my ARC of Guernica 🙂 The Heretic’s Daughter, however, will be the finished hard cover!
