Mailbox Monday - Dec 28


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 last Monday of 2020! This will be the last Mailbox Monday I will post here. Next week, this meme will move over to my primary blog, The Book Connection. I am sad I can't keep both blogs populated, but work is only going to get more hectic the next few years, so I am trying to be kind to myself and reduce what I can. 

I hope you had a blessed Christmas. Ours was nice, but different. My father-in-law was always a source of laughter. We missed that this year. Sometimes, I find it hard to believe he's gone. My mother-in-law is holding her own, which is a true blessing considering the dementia and cardiac issues.

This year, I found five of the top ten books I wanted under the Christmas tree or on my Kindle.

My son surprised me with this Civil War title. 

I also snagged this Kindle freebie right before Christmas.

Thank you to all the loyal readers who joined me each Monday here to discover what new books arrived or to learn a bit about my life. I hope you'll visit my other blogs:

I also blog twice a month at my publisher's blog and once every few months at Christian Children's Authors.

Only God knows what the future brings. I am praying for health and happiness for us in 2021. God bless you all!!!


  1. You received some wonderful looking books! I didn't realize you had other blogs but totally understand why you're consolidating. Have a good final week of 2020, Cheryl!

    1. Thanks, Mary. I am thrilled to have them. I think I had six when I was really blogging a lot. Now, I will be down to just the two.

      Hope you have a wonderful week.

  2. Nice Christmas book curve. I love the look of Civil War Battlefields.
    One blog is for sure enough for me. I'll look forward to visiting your other blog.
    Have a safe and Happy New Year.

    1. Yes, the Christmas books were fun to get, Martha. I am a big Civil War buff, too.

      Thanks for visiting.

  3. Wonderful on the books you received for Christmas!!

    ENJOY them all, and I hope you are having a good last week of 2020!!
