Mailbox Monday

Only two books this past week but I'm very excited about both of them.

A Fine and Private Place by Peter S. Beagle. From the lovely Nymeth for winning her year-end contest to guess her top reads of 2008. Yay! I can't wait to read it, although I may try to save it for the R.I.P challenge in the autumn. Thanks again Nymeth!

Breathing Out the Ghost by Kirk Curnutt, which I won in a giveaway at Serena's Savvy Verse & Wit. Signed and sent to me by the author! Thank you so much! I'm very much looking forward to reading this one too.

  1. I am really looking forward to reading Breathing Out the Ghost too. It sounds like it will be a good one.

  2. Both look like great books! And, since you won them, they are not your fault at all. :)

  3. I've stopped entering contests unless I REALLY REALLY REALLY want the book because I have a stack that I've won and NEVER read.

    I still plan to but along with every other TBR book around here, it gets put off.

  4. You are most welcome! I hope you enjoy it :)

  5. Both of those do sound really good! Enjoy the new books :)

  6. You got a couple of great looking books! I love winning contests!

  7. Happy reading - I haven't read either of those books yet.

  8. Ooh I look forward to hearing what you think of Beagle!

  9. Mary - A short list this week but I'm looking forward to both of them.

    Wendy - It does sound great, doesn't it? Not sure when I'm going to fit it in but hopefully it won't be too long.

    Kailana - Completely guilt-free! The best kind of books! :P

    Callista - I can't resist the giveaways! But if nothing else the books are in good company with all the other books waiting to be read. ;)

    Nymeth - I hope so too, but I'm sure I will. :)

    Iliana - Thanks. I have lots of tempting books surrounding me lately. Need. More. Time!!

    bermudaonion - Winning contests is very fun! :)

    Wendi B. - I'm looking forward to both of them. Happy reading to you too!

    mariel - I've heard such good things about it, I can't wait to read it.

  10. Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. Enjoy your books!
