Mailbox Monday (43)

Hey Everyone! It's time for another Mailbox Monday post.

I have been such a slow reader lately!  I really need to speed it up because the books keep coming in.

From the Library:


Sorry for the bad picture.  The hubs gave me a Barnes and Noble gift card for my birthday and this is what I bought! When I read these books initially, I got them from the library so it's nice to own them.  Now I can reread them and read them to Julia when she's older.

What books did you get this week?


  1. Some weeks are slow reading. Hope you get your mojo back.

  2. Nice BD gift - happy belated. :-) And nice purchase. Enjoy all of your reading!

  3. Hi Denise,

    The premise of all the male members of a family remaining bachelors, is definitely an intriguing one and is quite and original concept for a storyline, although I am not sure that this is a book for me!

    I really have just never had any interest in the Harry Potter series, either the books or films. Perhaps I should at least try the first book and see how I get on, given that everyone around me raves about them, including my 85 year old mother-in-law! As you say, the boxed set will be a great gift to keep for your own children.

    Thanks for sharing your new finds and have a good week,


  4. Love the boxset! It's gorgeous :)

  5. I still have not read the Harry Potter books; I've seen all the movies though!

  6. I'm a bit underwater with books right now so I know what you mean about speeding up the reading :) How nice to have the HP books on your shelves for whenever you want to read one.

  7. I'm the same way with my reading here lately. I need to go to the beach by myself!

  8. I am a slow reader too. :)

    I just can't read any faster. :) :)

    ENJOY your reading week.

  9. Gift cards for books are the best! Enjoy....and thanks for sharing. Thanks, too, for visiting my blog.

  10. I'm not keeping up with my reading very well. I think it's the weather, although you'd think cold rain/fog/snow would make me want to read more! Love the HP set. Every house needs at least one complete set of Harry Potter!

  11. The Potter collection is an awesome purchase to make. I feel as if they should be on every book shelf, but I'm biased. I picked up Invaded as well, but I still have to finish reading Alienated. I can understand the pains of not getting books read. I just always have so many things on my mind that it is hard to concentrate of late. Well, enjoy your shiny, new collection!
