Mailbox Monday

I might be the most sporadic MM participant this side of the Mississippi!  Thanks to Bluestocking for hosting during the month of June.

This week’s mailbox held quite a bounty, and I already made my way through Spoiled by my favorites–the girls of Go Fug Yourself–and am halfway through Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner.

Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner (Atria,7/12/11) is courtesy of Engleman & Co.

The Astral by Kate Christensen (Doubleday, 6/14/11) is courtesy of the publisher.

Spoiled by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan [The Fuggirls] (Poppy, 6/1/11) is courtesy of the publisher.

Born Standing Up by Steve Martin (Scribner,12/20/07) is from Jenners over at Life…With Books.

The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek (Plume, 5/31/11 [paperback]) is courtesy of the publisher.

Thanks to all great publishers, publicists, and friends who filled my mailbox.  How about that pencil, by the way?  I have an obsession with oversized or miniaturized run-of-the-mill objects and this guy is the newest addition to my collection. 

Aside from the mundane bills and junk mail, what was in YOUR mailbox this week?

    The books all look good and the pencil is adorable – does it write? I hope all of your books are winners!

        I haven’t done a MM post in I don’t know how long. I get books all the time but I never feel like taking a photo of them.

            I just LOVE your giant pen! It’s the perfect accessory to make one’s TBR pile look smaller, right?
            You’ve got a great selection of books, all on my wishlist if you can believe it! I’m really curious to hear your thoughts on Spoiled, I just love the girls from Go Fug Yourself.

                  Awesome additions to your collection! I read The Summer We Read Gatsby last year and really enjoyed it — the New York setting was great and well done. And I’m super excited for the new Jennifer Weiner book!

                        My son would LOVE that pencil. He has a foot-long one (or maybe even longer) from Ripleys Believe It or Not and lots of different designs but nothing like that. And I haven’t read Jennifer Weiner in so long … she is great for summer reading I think.
