In My Mailbox (January 9th-15th 2011)

{For Review}
You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon (ARC) (Amy Einhorn Books)
The Other Life by Ellen Meister (ARC) (TLC Tours)
Lonely: Learning to Live with Solitude by Emily White (TLC Tours)
The Dream of Perpetual Motion by Dexter Palmer (Picador)
By Love Possessed by Lorna Goodison (Random House Canada)
The Gathering by Kelly Armstrong (ARC) (Two Copies) (Random House Canada)
The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman (TLC Tours)

I was hoping to hold a giveaway for the second copy of The Gathering but after it costing me almost $8 to send a smaller book off to the US I'm not sure how practical that is. I really didn't remember postage being so expensive...

{Won}
A Thousand Tomorrows / Just Beyond the Clouds by Karen Kingsbury
Emma's River by Alison Hart  
I also got a lovely postcard by sending an e-mail off to Kristen Hubbard who's debut Like Mandarin is being released in March. A few months back I won some signed bookmarks from her, so now I just need the book to match!

How was your mailbox this week?

  5. I also jealous about The Gathering, I can't wait to read that one :D
    You got some amazing books this week :)
    I'm just curious, how did you get in touch with Random House Canada? I'm in Canada too, and I've been wondering about the Canadian publishing companies, so I thought I'd ask you since you received some books from one. :)

  8. I am incredibly jealous of the Gathering and You Know When The Men Are Gone. What an awesome week in books for you!!

    Also, if you give the Gathering away why not just do it for Canada, so you don't have to spend as much on shipping. So rarely are contests Canada-only, it might be nice for your Canadian readers :-)
