Hosted in November at Mailbox Monday

Last week I used a credit at Audible.com to buy Trading Christmas by Debbie Macomber. The movie version is being shown on the Hallmark channel this season but I also wanted to read it. Macomber Christmas themed books are heartwarming. A few days later I received an email from Audible announcing a sale – 100 books priced at $4.95 each (it may still be going on). That was hard to pass up especially when one of the books offered was one I’ve always meant to read but never got around to: Man’s Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl (narrated by Simon Vance). I also picked up Debbie Macomber’s Christmas Cookbook. My hubby recently won an iPad 2 at work and gave it to me. I’ve been tempted to buy this cookbook and thought I’d try it on the iPad. I’ll let you know what I think in a few weeks. Hm, interesting mix of books, wouldn’t you say? 😉
Then I ventured out for a little shopping on Small Business Saturday. The local indie bookstore was my destination. I picked up two copies of The Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn. Those are Christmas gifts – and they’re signed! I also found a book for my Book Blogger Swap-ee (to remain a secret – I bought the same book for me). And I had to pick up The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston because of all the book blogger rave reviews. Merry Christmas to me 🙂
So what was in your mailbox last week?
