Mailbox Monday – November 10, 2008

Another Monday and another week of books. I found two books in my mailbox last week:

Matrimony, by Joshua Henkin. I won this signed edition during the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon and was very excited to have it arrive in my mailbox this week. Thanks, Josh!

Right Livelihoods, by Rick Moody. This arrived Thursday from Little, Brown and Co. – I believe I requested it though Shelf Awareness…I think I asked for it as a step outside of my normal reading. It is a collection of three novellas. I have not read anything by this author – he is supposed to be one of the up and coming writers who are on the cutting edge of what makes the world tick; so I’m going to give this one a try. Anyone out there read anything by Moody?

    I’ve never read any of Rick Moody’s work, but can’t wait to see what you think of it.

    Congrats on winning Matrimony. It’s on my nightstand too.

    Your description of Right Livelihoods makes it sound very intriguing.

    Serena: Thanks 🙂

    Kathy: I have seen very few reviews of this one…

    Dawn: Thanks!

    Darlene: Thanks! I’ll look forward to your thoughts on it.

    Shana: I hope it is good – it is really outside of my usually reading material, but I’m always open to expanding into new areas 🙂

    Matrimony certainly has been making the rounds. I received it a couple of weeks ago, but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Looking forward to your review.

    Guess I missed that one on Shelf Awareness – looks good though!

    Thanks for stopping by the ‘mailbox’ this week. Matrimony is on my Raved-About Reads challenge list.

    Anna: Josh has been doing a great job marketing this book to the book bloggers!

    Lenore: I am not sure if it came from Shelf Awareness…I cannot honestly remember where I requested it from; but I request most of my ARCs from there, so I made a guess!

    Marcia: Matrimony has been getting nice reviews.
