Mailbox Monday (22)


Had both kids at home sick with a bad case of the stomach flu last week! Couldn't wait for things to get back to normal. While the kids recuperated, I caught up on some reading and started my spring cleaning. Yay! This meme is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. You should check out her blog and see what others have received and to play along. 

The Moon Looked Down by Dorothy Garlock (A win from Libby's Library)

Amazon Synopsis:
Sophie Heller's family immigrated from Germany to Victory, a small town in Illinois, before WWII began. Now that the war has affected the town, the townspeople discriminate against Sophie and her family. When a train derails, it is an accident but the Heller family is blamed. Coming to Sophie's rescue is a teacher from the high school, and despite their cultural differences, a romance starts to bloom.


Read, Remember, Recommend: A Reading Journal for Book Lovers by Rachelle Rogers Knight

The ultimate organizing resource for book-lovers and a self-published hit, Read, Remember, Recommend gives readers a one-stop shop to keep track of their reading. Featuring 60 cross-referenced lists of literary awards and notable picks (Pulitzer, National Book Award, 100 Best Books of the Century), this journal offers more than 2500 suggestions to help readers discover great literature and new authors. The journal also provides room to record books read, jot down thoughts and ideas, and keep track of recommendations, books borrowed and loaned, and book club history.

Unlike anything on the market, Read, Remember Recommend keeps readers coming back to bookstores to purchase recommended books, creates opportunities for add-on and return sales, and celebrates the readers' love of books.

So what did you get in your mailbox last week?
