Mailbox Monday – February 9

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Gage received a thoughtful gift from Kay. A train postcard, two train books and an engineer cap.  Thanks so much Kay – you’re the best! (the hat does fit, but I only had time to throw it on his head before he was on the move again)


Last week I went to Barnes & Noble for some retail therapy.  I bought lots of gifts and one for myself.  Since I loved Garden Spells I am excited about this one.

It’s October in Bascom, North Carolina, and autumn will not go quietly. As temperatures drop and leaves begin to turn, the Waverley women are made restless by the whims of their mischievous apple tree… and all the magic that swirls around it. But this year, first frost has much more in store.

What was in your mailbox this week?

  3. I bet Gage loves getting book mail as much as his mama does. I could go for some retail therapy right about now.

  5. Yay! I’m so happy that the hat doesn’t fall below Gage’s eyes! I was afraid it might. Hope he enjoys the books. I had fun finding them and got to visit our local train enthusiasts’ location.

    Retail therapy is always a plus. Just looking at books makes me calmer. Enjoy you new book!

  6. So nice of Kay to gift Gage in that special way! I just love retail therapy, especially at a book store, which I did twice this past month courtesy of my adult son. We had such fun. Glad you picked up a fave book; I’ve read one by her but not the first in that series, and the cover…love it!

  12. Gage looks ready to have some fun with those books. 🙂

    I still have to read Garden Spells. It’s one of those books that’s been on my shelf so long I almost forgot and bought it a second time!

  14. I know so many people seem to love Sarah Addison Allen’s books. She’s an author I’ve had my eye on for a while now, but haven’t had a chance to get to yet. Eventually… Happy reading!
