Mailbox Monday-- Probably the Last Slow Week for Now

Another week has gone by, and it's time for my favorite meme: Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia on her blog The Printed Page. If you're thinking of joining in, or if you're just insatiably curious about all those books, glorious books that bloggers are receiving in their mailboxes each week, I'll tell you what you should do:

See that redhead over there to the left? Click on her, and she'll take you right to the heart of this week's action. Thanks so much for hosting this, Marcia!

This past week was another slow week for book arrivals here at Casa Kittling. I sent two books out to new Paperback Swap (PBS) foster homes, and found two in my mailbox. This will probably be the last slow week for a while because I have several books on my Paperback Swap wish list that have turned up, and they're winging their way to me as I type.

What two books did I get last week? Let's take a look!
  1. Miles to Go, A Rennie Vogel Intrigue by Amy Dawson Robertson. (Author requested review.) "Rennie has devoted her life and body to training as an FBI counter terrorism operative. The brutal pace has slowly stripped away her private life until only the most fleeting contacts with other women are possible. When her ambition of being the first woman ever considered to join CT3 is finally realized, she pushes herself to the limit to earn the position.When one disaster after another befalls her, Rennie finds herself abandoned. Only then does she begin to unravel the misdirection and deceit that surrounds their first assignment, and to wonder if her failure, not her success, was part of the plan. Ultimately, with miles of an inhospitable landscape and an ambiguous enemy between her and safety, Rennie must decide if she can trust the one thing she never has before: another woman."
  2. Read, Remember, Recommend: A Reading Journal for Book Lovers by Rachelle Rogers Knight. (Request from publicist.) "This journal leads you on a personal journey through the best loved and most highly acclaimed fiction and literature of all times. This 236-page spiral bound journal encourages you to read and interact with the greatest and most intriguing books and establish intimate relationships with your favorite writers and fellow book lovers."
There you have it: what I found when I opened my mailbox last week. Now it's time for me to check out what everyone else received!


  1. Read, Remember and Recommend is a wonderful book; enjoy (I need to do a review)

  2. I got Read, Remember Recommend too and I think it's fantastic! I can't wait to see your mailbox next week.

  3. I'm seeing a lot of Read, Remember, Recommend - think I need to add that to my list sine I didn't snag a review copy :)

  4. I really need to splurge and buy a copy of Read, Remember and Recommend. It sounds like a useful tool.

  5. I got the reading journal last week. I had fun checking off the awards books on my shelves, but haven't looked at it beyond that. Looking forward to your thoughts.

    Diary of an Eccentric

  6. That's a good chance for catchup. Get two, give two. Miles to Go sounds interesting. Have a good week and happy reading.

  7. Miles To Go looks good! Enjoy your new books :)

  8. The RRR one sounds good. I'm hoping you're going to tell us about it.

  9. Just for once I have received such a nice pile of books in a few days (eight plus one to come), and I have duly photographed them, but now Blogger will not allow me to upload the picture.

  10. I just got Read, Remember, Recommend too. Happy reading!

  11. Read Remember Recommend has been visiting a lot of mailboxes but not mine. My MM is here.

  12. Great books this last week, I hope you enjoy them both.

  13. Blodeuedd-- See? I can do it if I put my mind to it! LOL

    Diane-- So do I!

    Kathy-- So far only one book has made its way here, so I might not have much to post next week either!

    Mary-- Perhaps you should! :)

    Beth-- It is.

    Anna-- I have had a chance to check into it more. I hope to get my review up Thursday.

    Kaye-- Thanks!

    Alita-- Thank you!

    Margot-- I will be... soon!

    Dorte-- I've heard that Google had image problems yesterday. Fortunately I didn't need to upload anything. Usually I'm not so lucky!

    Avis-- Same to you!

    Puss-- They'd probably have to extend the print run for everyone to get a copy! LOL

    Ryan-- Me, too!

  14. I have that journal as well, not sure about it though.

  15. Serena-- I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on it.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
