Mailbox Monday and Giveaway Winner

Thanks to a book chain letter I sent out a couple of months ago, at least one book came into my mailbox last week.

Thanks go to Avis of She Reads and Reads for hosting Mailbox Monday in October.

But first:


Congratulations to Tea at I Love to Read who won my copy of The Art of Disappearing by Ivy Pochoda. I used to pick the winning number (it was 2), but Tea did a good job of increasing her odds by entering in all five of the possible ways. Thanks Tea!

And thanks to everyone else who entered. I've seen several giveaways for this book, so I wish you luck getting a copy elsewhere.


44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith (this is the first of his newer series)

Canola Gourmet by Sheilah Kaufman and Sheri L. Coleman.  At first, I thought this was a chain letter book, because it came with no cover letter or note or anything. But I now realize from the return address that it came from the author.


  1. You are lucky you got one book from the chain letter. I have done a couple and never received a book. I hope more show up soon for you!

  2. Both of your books look good - I hope you enjoy them.

    Congratulations Tea!!

  3. 44 Scotland Street was the first Alexander McCall Smith book that I read. His Isabel Dalhousie books are the ones I like the best though.

  4. One of these days I need to read a book by AMS. Have a great week!

  5. I haven't read any of AMS's series, other than the Ladies' Detective Agency books. Hope this new series is good too!
