Mailbox Monday and Giveaway Winners

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

One of my favorite bloggers, Caitlin from Chaotic Compendiums, is hosting in March. Stop by her terrific blog! You'll be glad you did and, as promised, you may just find your next book.


Three lucky book lovers won copies of Warming Up by Mary Hutchings Reed, coming in April from She Writes Press.

It's a great story about an out-of-work musical actress who's life turns around after an encounter with a homeless teen grifter.  


Chosen by the random number generator at, the three winners are:
Apologies for the delay. I said I'd announce the winners on last Friday's Book Beginnings post, but I got buried at work.


I went on a Thrift Book spree and got a stack of books I've been searching for for quite a while. The two I am most excited about are from my French Connections list:

French Ways and Their Meanings by Edith Wharton. This is a facsimile of the original 1919 edition and offers Wharton's firsthand observations on French life.

Bistro Cooking by Patricia Wells. I have been cuddling up with this one, dreaming of the distant day when my kitchen remodel will be finished.


  1. Oh, I bet French Ways and Their Meanings is fascinating! Congratulations to the winners!

  2. Oh - I think the Wharton looks fascinating, too!

    Thanks so much for the win of Warming Up!

  3. Enjoy your books. They look interesting.

    Sorry it took so much of your time finding me. I'm so excited about Warming Up. Thank you so much. I have already written to the Beek email you gave me. Thanks again.

  5. I love browsing thrift stores for good finds! I haven't had a chance to do that in a while. Hope you enjoy our books!

    Thanks for stopping by!
