Mailbox Monday - 2/9/09

Mailbox Monday is hosted by The Printed Page.  I had another good week last week.  Considering all of the books I received lately, I'm being very picky about review requests so that I can read what I have and not get too far behind.  Here is what arrived at my house last week:

Last week I posted a review for The Moose with Loose Poops and made the comment that I would love to read the rest of the series.  Thanks to Paula at AME, who I did the review for, and who contacted the author with my request, I received the other 4 books in the series.

The Kitty Series - all 6 books - from Hatchette

Too Tall Alice - by Barbara Worton, from author, via Bostick Communications

Baron Thinks Dogs Are People Too! - by Laurie Dean, from author, via Bostick Communications 

Lincoln Through the Lens - by Martin W. Sandler, from The Picnic Basket

Dr. Gott's No Flour No Sugar Cookbook - from Hatchette - this is the 2nd copy I received...?

Dog On It - by Spencer Quinn, from Atria Books

Shimmer - by Eric Barnes, from Unbridled Books

The Wonder Singer - by George Rabasa, from Unbridled Books

Ugly Guide to Being Alive and Staying That Way - by David Horvath & Sun-Min Kim - from Random House

Linoln and His Boys  (ARC) - by Rosemary Wells, from Candlewick Press via The Picnic Basket

Wiggle and Waggle - by Caroline Arnold from

Good Day, Aggie - by Lori Ries, from

The Legend of Honey Hollow - by Jeanne McNaney, from

There were so many books this week that this would have been an enormous post if I had added summaries and pictures.  What did you get in your mailbox?

Its nice to see that I wasn't the only one who got a good haul last week with books. I see we got some of the same titles. Isn't it nice when they send you a complete series. Thats what happened last week for me. Looking forward to your reviews.

A HA! Now that I see all the kids books and check out your profile, I should have known you were a teacher...only teachers do things as nice as you did with your comment about my birthday blog! I am a 37 year retiring in June teacher and so I thank you again. Happy to be following your blog...great job!

Did you enjoy Too Tall Alice and Baron Thinks Dogs are People Too? I got them both last week as well and featured them on my Mailbox Monday, too! I thought they were both great - Baron is so much like my dog, Niko (today she had a shopping day with the girls... the pet store and Walmart... in her stoller!)
