Mailbox Monday

My good friends the snowmen are helping me introduce the new books that came into my home this week - it seemed appropriate, since apparently we have 4-8 inches of snow to look forward to in the next 24 hours. Have I mentioned how much I love snow? And by love, I mean hate...

Three books came from bookswapping sites:

Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany by Bill Buford

The Folded World by Amity Gage

The Naming: The First Book of Pellinor by Alison Croggon

A few others came from other sources...

The Help by Kathryn Sockett

Blonde Roots by Bernardine Evaristo

The Glister by John Burnside

American Rust by Philipp Meyer

The Book of Night Women by Marlon James

So once again I am overflowing - so backed up that I'll never see the light of day. What a wonderful problem to have! Stop by The Printed Page to join us in the fun!

That is a wonderful problem. We got some of the same books. Heat sounds awfully good.

I hate snow, too. Hope you get a chance to curl up with a good book! Happy reading!

Elizabeth, you got some great looking books. Gotta love this midwestern weather. It's supposed to be warm here today, but then it gets yucky ...

My post is HERE.

Great week! I received Glister and The Help. Heat sounds really interesting though - I'd love to hear how you like it.

I'm hoping we get a little snow this year. Our son is almost 2 (Christmas Eve baby) and I think he'd love it! We just picked up a pair of snow boots for him *crossing fingers*!!

The only thing i like about snow is it means it wouldn't be horribly cold!

Talk about the weather, New England is wacky! We had a high of 26 Monday and 64 yesterday. Snowflakes at the beginning of the week, downpours today. "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute; it will change."

Now, on to the books! I'm glad your snowmen are helping to keep that stack upright :)

My answer (and a silly pic of my mailbox) is here.
