The Sunday Post

Sunday Post

When I first started as a book blogger one of the things I LOVED was getting all those packages in the mail.  Those review copies were wonderful and Christmas came often in the form of books in the mail.  I actively pursued them and was prompt with my reviews so I think everyone was happy. Then I got a Kindle and discovered NetGalley.  Even more books were available, and I didn't have to figure out what to do with them when I was done with them.  Well, I've recently gotten three packages in the mail, just like the good old days and it was fun to open the envelope and see what was there.  

The nice folks at Catholic Word sent me these books, which I will be reviewing later this month and all through November:

I also got a package from Litfuse that contained

On my blog this week, besides Mommy Mommy,  I've reviewed:

Oh, and something else I've been doing is highlighting old posts via a "From My Archives" post.  This week I looked at June, 2006 and it included one of my first book reviews:  The DaVinci Code.


  1. It is so much fun to get those books in the mail, but they did contribute to my book hoarding problem, so I mostly get them from Vine or NetGalley these days.

    The Vine books are ARCs, so they are tossed afterwards, and the NetGalley ones go to the Giant Cloud...LOL.

    Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. I rarely get a print review book these days. I love the NetGalley option. Your new books look good :)

  3. I've never 'officially' reviewed any book, so no problem with too many coming in the mail--unless you count Amazon with my own ordering. :~)

  4. It's been quite some time since I've gotten books in the mail! Like Debbie, it's only my amazon orders these days. I still get a review book from NetGalley once in a while (I've been trying to control myself)... reading Elizabeth Strout's upcoming novel now.
