Mailbox Monday - Sep 17

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. My father-in-law turned 88 on Sunday, so we visited him at the Soldiers' Home and had a little party. On Saturday, the whole family had gotten together for dinner, so it was a weekend of celebrations.

I'm hoping to step out to the garden in a few and plant the garlic. Not sure it will happen since things are getting busy with work this morning, but I would love to get it done.

Lots of books this past week. One for review, three books for research, one because I love the time period, and a Kindle freebie (in that order).

So excited about all the new seasonal and holiday titles making their way onto the market right now. 

What was in your mailbox?


  1. Happy birthday to your father-in-law. Your family weekend sounds fabulous.

  2. Happy birthday to your father-in-law! Always wonderful to celebrate another birthday.

    Lots of interesting books this week as well. The one about early American medicine sounds both interesting and frightening. Hahaha.

    My list!

  3. Thanks, ladies. Any birthdays at this point are good ones.

    Aymee, I almost didn't order that American medicine one because I don't really want to be grossed out.

  4. Happy Birthday to your father-in-law.

    Love your new mailbox graphic.

    Lots of nice books this week...ENJOY!!

  5. What a nice celebration! Happy Birthday to your FIL.
    Great new books. Happy Reading!

  6. Happy birthday to the FIL. I hope that American Medicine book is as interesting as it sounds. I went to a Civil War Medical Museum and it was fascinating...but gross.
