Mailbox Monday - March 26th

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house recently, but here's a warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

 Created by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday, now has its own blog. Hosting duties are rotated every month.  March is being hosted by Anna at Diary of an Eccentric.  Be sure to stop by and discover a new and wondrous (for me anyway) addition to your blog roll and take a look at everyone's Mailbox lists.

Only one book this week, but it was a definite winner ...Doesn't this one just look like so much fun?  Southern Fiction is one of my favorite genres, so I was thrilled when the mailman brought this ARC by Lynda Rutledge from Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam.  It hopped right into the "sooner rather than later" queue.

Here's the blurb:

On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling decides to have a garage sale. Why is the richest lady in Bass, Texas, a recluse for twenty years, suddenly selling off her worldly possessions?As the townspeople grab up the heirlooms, and the antiques reveal their own secret stories,a cast of characters appears to witness the sale or try to stop it. Before the day is over, they’ll all examine their roles in the Bass family saga, as well as some of life’s most imponderable questions: Do our possessions possess us? What are we without our memories? Is there life after death or second chances here on earth? And is Faith really selling that Tiffany lamp for $1?
So what was in your mailbox this week?


  1. I need to read this book. I can't seem to let go of enough of the stuff I have.

  2. This sounds like a good one --Thanks for mentioning it.

  3. I often think about selling or giving away most, if not all my 'stuff'. Keep my bed, my chair, my books and all my kitchen stuff. The rest can go.
    Oh way, not that I have a cat, I guess I have to keep his 'stuff' too. Animals are funny like that.


Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion. Due to a bunch more anonymous spam getting through, I've had to disallow anonymous comments. I try to respond to all comments posing a question, but may not always get to you right away.
