Mailbox Monday – December 28, 2009

mailboxMonday1Welcome to another edition of Mailbox Monday hosted weekly by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Visit Marcia today to leave a link to YOUR mailbox, or to see other readers’ acquisitions.

I found only one book in my mailbox this week, but it’s a goodie:

OneAmazingThingOne Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni arrived from Hyperion Voice through a Shelf Awareness offer. Due for release in February, One Amazing Thing takes place in an Indian visa and passport office in an unnamed U.S. city and involves nine disparate people trapped together after an earthquake. Faced with their own mortality and ability to survive, they begin sharing one amazing thing from their lives.  “In disaster they will discover truth. In each other they will find hope.” Divakaruni is an award-winning bestselling novelist and poet. Her themes include women, immigration, the South Asian experience, history, myth, magic and celebrating diversity. To read more about her and her work, visit the author’s website.
