Mailbox Monday #96

This week was the most awesome mailbox for me!!!

I finally received Tatiana's Table by Paullina Simons! I'm sure that many of you are aware that this book can be very hard to find. I actually spent all day on a Saturday in December trying to find this book. I found it on UK Amazon for $60 (with shipping and US conversion) which I didn't want to pay because that was ridiculous. In the US it was being listed for around $212 which I certainly wasn't going to pay! Then I found Abbey's Bookshop located in Sydney, Australia. They had the book and with shipping and US conversion it was $36 - which I found to be completely reasonable! So if you are looking for this book, check them out and also for any hard to find needs. Great customer service and fast shipping!  Also, my Weekend Cooking next Saturday will be from this book!  Stay tuned.

I also received another book I was excited to get - Look to the East by Maureen Lang.  This is the first book in a trilogy (of which I had books 2 and 3) about The Great War (WWI).  It is also Christian Fiction, but have yet had the chance to determine how much Christian Fiction it is.  I have heard good things about this series.  Thank you Holly @ Bippity, Boppity, Book!  This was my prize from winning the Chivalrous Deeds Challenge.

That's it for me, what about you?!

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of January it is being hosted by At Home With Books.

  1. Glad you found that hard-to-get treasure! Will you post about the book at a later date to let us know about the contents? Sounds intriguing.

  2. I am going to be reading lots of Christian Fiction this year.. so I'm interested in your thoughts on Maureen Lang.

  3. Joanne - I will likely be writing something about Tatiana's Table this Saturday - so stay tuned!

    Marie - I will be sure to let you know. I'm excited to read this one and trying to see where I can squeeze it in!

  4. Wow, I'm so glad you found Tatiana's Table!

  5. Congrats on finding Tatiana's Table, great find! I hope you enjoy both books!

  6. Woo-hoo for Tatiana's Table!

    I can highly recommend the Banana Bread - comes out with a delicious crunchy crust that I haven't always seen on other friends. Another friend swears by the Cabbage Pie too!

  7. Sigh...friends shouldn't be crusty anyway. I meant the bread.

  8. Marg - I love the sound of the banana bread and maybe I will make that soon! Thanks for the recommendation. And you made me crack up laughing, but I knew what you meant!


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
