Mailbox Monday #61

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page and it is now on tour each month. For the month of January it has been hosted by Rose City Reader.

Today’s Mailbox is really an amalgamation of the last three weeks mailboxes. One week I didn’t feel like posting just one book and last week I didn’t want to interrupt YA Hist-Fic week. So here it is…

I received some awesome reads from PaperBackSwap over the last couple of weeks. It really pays to get rid of your boyfriend’s books in return to get some of your own! So here were my PBS finds:

The King’s Daughter by Sandra Worth. After reading Pale Rose of England I just had to get some more of her books. Jane Boleyn: The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford by Julia Fox. I have been looking at this one for awhile and have always been interested in seeing more of Jane Boleyn. The Highest Stakes by Emery Lee. This one I have wanted since before it came out and I was so excited to get the notification about this one. The copy I received in the mail is so beautiful and in excellent condition.

My most exciting item in the mail is a new episode of American ExperienceTriangle Fire. I am so excited for this one because I worked on a major project on this subject in college and even though it was the worst workplace disaster in NYC prior to the 9/11 tragedy, not enough people know about it. I cannot wait to watch this one. Here is the blurb:

“It was the deadliest workplace accident in New York City’s history. A
dropped cigarette on the 8th floor of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory sparked a
fire that killed over a hundred innocent people trapped inside. The private
industry of the American factory would never be the same.”
The final thing that I received in my mailbox is for a blog tour being organized by Premier Virtual Author Book Tour for India Black by Carol Carr. I have heard a great many good things about this book and cannot wait to get into reading it. Stay tuned in March for the review and guest post.

What goods came in your mailbox this week (or the last few!)?
