Mailbox Monday, Giveaway Winner, and an Informal Giveaway


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

It was a lot of fun to host MM in January.  This week, MM moved to the Library of Clean Reads for February.
GIVEAWAY WINNER

The winner of my final Mailbox Monday giveaway was Beth at The Crazy Life of a Bookaholic Mom (Random.org pick #21).

Beth won an ARC of Bering Sea Blues: A Crabber's Tale of Fear in the Icy North by Joe Upton.  Thanks again go to Mary Bisbee-Beek, an incredibly diligent book publicist, for providing the bounty.



MY MAILBOX and an INFORMAL GIVEAWAY

I got two books last week:

Honolulu by Alan Brennert. This is for my March Book Club.  It looks good.



Remembering the Power of Words: The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator, and Community Leader by Avel Louise Gordly with Patricia A. Schechter.  OSU Press was nice enough to send me this memoir, but I am sticking with my New Year reading resolution to eliminate, not add to, my Guilt List.  So if anyone is interested, leave a comment and I will pass it on to someone more appreciative.

Good for you for sticking to your resolution! I confess that I was delighted to receive three books this week despite my book-acquiring ban. Hope you enjoy your book club book!

Wow - both Honolulu and the Bering Sea one sound good. We love to watch Deadliest Catch... bet the book is interesting.
