Mailbox Monday January 3

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists! Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia at the Printed Page. Mailbox Monday is now on tour and this month's host is Rose City Reader. Thank you for hosting this month!

I hope everyone had a nice holiday. It sure is hard to get back into the swing of things here this morning. The tree is down, the presents are put away and school started back up today. I still need to sign up for reading challenges for the year. Hopefully that will be done today or tomorrow. I received one book for review this past week. I love Southern Fiction so when I saw this book being offered on Librarything Early Reviewers I signed up for a chance to win it. I thumbed through it and see there are recipes and discussion questions in the back of the book. Looks like my kind of book!

Hungry for Happiness by James Villas

Thank you to Librarything Early Reviewers Group and Kensington Publishing

No resolutions made here except I hope to read more. Did you make any resolutions?

I am off to check out the other mailbox posts. What wonderful books made their way into your home?


  1. Happy you got Hungry for Happiness.

    I did the same and Xmas tree plus ornaments got put away today.

    Have a great week and all the best for 2011!

  2. It does sound like a good book. You're right that it's hard to get back into the swing of things especially since my kids only go back to school on Thursday.

  3. Great resolution. Since 2010 was the first time ever keeping track of the number of books read, am hoping that I read more too. GL in your challenges.

  4. That is a great resolution, Beth. And Hungry for Happiness has a lovely cover...I'm not much into cooking these days, but recipes with great pix might just tempt me!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. Hungry for Happiness sounds like a great read. I hadn't heard of it before your post but I will be adding it to my TBR list. Biscuits and pound cake, yum!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Beth. Happy New Year!

  6. I quit making resolutions years ago. Enjoy your new book!

  7. Hungry for Happiness looks great! I love books that involve food, enjoy!

  8. I don't make resolutions anymore but I do try to "never give up" ;-) My tree came down this morning and 99% of the decorations are packed away. Time to read again!!
    I think your book looks great. I haven't won a book from LT for a few months but maybe it's a sign I should be reading my own books, haha.
    Happy New Year, Beth!

  9. That one is completely new to me and I like the cover.

  10. Oh, that looks like a good one! Thanks for stopping by my Mailbox. Happy reading!

  11. What an interesting sounding book - I'm 5'4" and can't imagine weighing 180 much less 280! Can't wait to hear if it is good!

  12. I love the cover of Hungry for Happiness. :) Makes me long for summer.
