Look What's In My Goody Bag
I feel like a little kid in the candy store this week. I have received so many unexpected packages.
I don't mean to gloat but I never win on any blogs. But I do at book club girl's blog this is the third time in the last few months.
This is what I won for my book club:
# Book Club Girl mousepad Coasters for Your Next Book Group Gathering
# Matrimony by Joshua Henkin
# First Darling of the Morning by Thrity Umrigar
# The Jewel Trader of Pegu by Jeffrey Hantover
# Things I Want My Daughters to Know by Elizabeth Noble
# The Girl with No Shadow by Joanne Harris
One of the gifts is Matrimony, which our book club is planning on reading. The author, Joshua Henkin and I have had some correspondence. He is planning on joining us in July for our book club.. This is a great prize for our book club anniversary party. Any of you have any ideas for a contest to win these great prizes??
I also won Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews, for book club girl's Blog Talk Radio that will be broadcast.
We will be talking to Mary Kay Andrews. The new book is Deep Dish. I read her other one's and she is a dish. A fun one to read , it is full of laughs and odd-cap humor.
Go to Blog Talk Radio to sample the other authors that have stopped by.
You can visit Book Club Girl for more info. You listen in and can respond. It is better than a online book club. because you can listen to and participate in the club live or can listen later, but unfortunately, it won't be live.
Since I did not participate in Marcia's, Mailbox Monday I thought I would share with you the books I received:
Fifty Is Not A Four Letter Word by Linda Kelsey from Hatchette books. Thanks Miriam
Buffalo Lock Jaw by Greg Ames this is from Gayle at Every Day I Write The Book
Curse of the Spellmans. and Revenge of The Spellmans by Lisa Lutz. Lisa sent me all three in the series since you have to go in order.
Our book club received 12 copies of Sing Them Home by Stephanie Kallos. Thank you Bookreporter.com, Carol Fitzgerald and her staff for compensating our book club.
Thank you Karen for sending me The House on Tradd Street and her new one that will be out soon The Last Hours.
My son just announced we need a new house just for all the books I keep getting.
This just happened when I started blogging. I don't have any other place for them they are all over the floor. What are you going to do with all the book??? good question....
As you can see I will be busy for a while.
So what great tidbits did you receive??
