Mailbox Monday - November 30

Every week Marcia at The Printed Page hosts Mailbox Monday. It's a chance to share the books that came to your house last week, and to check out what other book lovers received. I always end up with several new books on my wish list after I go check out other people's mailboxes on Mondays.

I'm going to be lazy this week and use the Amazon image/link boxes for my mailbox. I don't feel like downloading images and linking each one up by hand this week. :-P

Here's what I received:

  • I won America's White Table by Margot Theis Raven in a giveaway at 5 Minutes for Books. It's a wonderful children's book explaining a Veteran's Day tradition of setting a table in honor of veterans. I also won a copy from Brimful Curiosities, but when I told her I already got a copy, she asked if I'd like to send it to a school. So the elementary school my father just retired from is getting a copy of this book as well. :) Thank you for the great idea!
  • An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon was another giveaway win--but this one is SIGNED! A very special THANK YOU to Deanna at Mom - Musings for this very special giveaway! She actually got to meet Diana Gabaldon and had the book signed. I get geeked out just thinking about it. LOL
  • The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold was another giveaway win (I've been really lucky lately, or just entering tons of giveaways). It isn't the kind of thing I normally read, but I've been finding that going out of my comfort zone is often a good thing. Thank you to Vera at Luxury Reading for hosting this giveaway.
That's what came to my mailbox this week! What was in yours?
