Welcome to this week’s edition of Mailbox Monday.

Here is what arrived at my house this week:
The folks from Random House sent me an Advance Readers Edition of I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella (due for release February 2012). Most people are familiar with Kinsella’s wildly popular Shopaholic series. In her latest novel, Kinsella brings to readers another hilariously funny female protagonist: Poppy Wyatt. When Poppy has her cell phone stolen, she is in a panic. She quickly recovers when she sees another phone which has clearly been discarded. But as she texts all her friends with her new number, the phone rings and strange man’s voice demands, “Excuse me, who is this? Why are you answering this number?” In this stand-alone novel, Kinsella explores the love-hate relationship we have with technology.
Sophie Kinsella is a bestselling author with more than 20 million copies of her books in print worldwide. Sophie wrote her first novel under her real name, Madeleine Wickham, at the age of 24, while she was working as a financial journalist. She submitted her first ‘Sophie Kinsella’ novel anonymously to her existing publishers and it was snapped up without her editors knowing that she was already one of their authors. It wasn’t until Can You Keep a Secret? was published that Kinsella revealed her true identity for the first time. Kinsella was born in London. She studied music at New College, Oxford, but after a year switched to Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She now lives in London, UK, with her husband and family. Learn more about Kinsella and her work by visiting the author’s website.
