Monday Mailbox #30 - Giveaway Winner Announcement

This month's Monday Mailbox is hosted by Let Them Read Books

This week I received two books from Nicole over at Confessions of a Book Lush. She was getting rid of a bunch of things, giving away a pile of books she no longer required. So I ended up with:

The Water's Lovely, by Ruth Rendell


The Life Before Her Eyes, by Laura Kasischke

This one has a movie adaptation, so I guess I'll have to see it if I end up liking the book.

And I know that a lot of Monday Mailboxers insist that library books don't count, but I say they do. This week I borrowed an e-book (because getting to the library to pick up a book was proving to be too much, and take too much time - on their actually confirming the hold). 

The Cookbook Collector, by Allegra Goodman

This one is for the Sense & Sensibility Bicentennial Challenge. 

Finally, I received my new paperback copy of A Discovery of Witches this week! And there was the giveaway of someone else will be getting one as well! I'm happy to announce that the winner of a newly published paperback copy of Deborah Harkness' A Discovery of Witches is:


Please check your e-mail for the winning confirmation, and respond with your shipping info so that Penguin Books can get that out to you.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated. If you still want a copy of A Discovery of Witches in paperback, it goes on Sale next Tuesday, December 27th. Pre-order yours now!


  1. Like I needed one more book on my TBR pile, and yet the cover of The Cookbook Collector just looks so scrumptious that I'm going to have to give it a try--and I don't even cook!

  2. I love that cover of the Cookbook Collector! There's another popular meme for library books, if you'd like to check it out. It's called Library Loot and Marg hosts it at Adventures of an Intrepid Reader. Here's the latest link:

  3. I hadn't heard of this - thank you so much!!

  4. Oh, I bet The Water's Lovely is excellent! I hope you enjoy it.

  5. The Cook Book Collector, looks interesting.

  6. Good books! I like Ruth Rendell. What a wonderful idea to clean off your bookshelves like Book Lush did! I have a book giveaway (one of my books I enjoyed reading) over at my blog. First one and only 1 person entered so far. Ends the 31st! hop over and enter. Merry Christmas!

  7. I saw the movie adaptation of The Life Before Her Eyes.... whatever you do, DON'T SEE IT FIRST (just in case you get tempted lol). It totally ruins things, even though I think they changed the ending a bit. I never ended up reading the book cause the damage was done XD I am happy the books arrived though! YAY! :D

  8. I'm so excited to be receiving my copy of A Discovery of Witches. Thanks for having this giveaway!
