Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading

This week’s muse:
Miz B has recently changed the format for this meme.  Instead of a weekly question we can now just post our thoughts on anything pertaining to books and/or reading.
My thoughts this week:  Surprise deliveries.
Be honest!!  Do you wait and hope that you will receive a goodie via mail and/or UPS?  I will fess up and say that I look forward to these deliveries.  I’m so bad that when I hear the mail carrier close my mailbox, I am checking it immediately to see if  there are any books.  The heck with the bills, I want books.

And 2 weeks ago, I received such a treat.  A book that I hadn’t expected but was so thrilled about receiving, that as soon as I got back to my desk, I was sending out emails to say thank you.  You ask what had me grinning ear to ear?  It was an ARC that Liz, from Media Muscle/The Book Trib sent, from an author that is on my “authors to read list”, Barbara Taylor Sissel, who is on my “favorite authors to read” list.  I have been a fan for a few years now and knew that a new book was coming out but not sure when.  I started it yesterday and was hooked.  Matter of fact, since today is a holiday, I think I am taking the afternoon off, so I can read it.  Barbara will be here in April as a guest author for Evidence of Life, and when you can read my review.  Until then, I recommend you read one of her previous novels.  You won’t be disappointed.  I’m off to my reading chair…..have a great day!!

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
