Mailbox Monday (April 27) & Comment Moderation


Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week. My mailbox wasn't as full last week. This is what I received:
What books came into your house last week?

Comment Moderation
I've been spammed with comments in chinese and have had to add comment moderation for the time being. I know that other bloggers have had this happen to them. What have you done to get rid of this spamming?!

  1. STILL ALICE is a wonderful book, sad but great.

  3. Good bunch you got this week. Enjoy! My mailbox is here

  4. I hope you enjoy Still Alice - I thought it was a great book. As for spam, I just delete them as soon as I notice them. There's not a whole lot else you can do other than comment moderation (at least that I know of). Good luck!

  5. I have yet to find an Eggplant recipe that I liked, so that Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant sounds interesting... assuming it's a recipe book. Maybe I should have clicked it first...

  8. Looks like you got some good books. I got spammed by Ed. I just deleted them all. He seems to be making his rounds again this morning. I'm surprised that there is no way to report to blogger somebody like that, or at least none that I could find.

  11. Ed spammed about 20 of my posts last week. What a pain! Hope you enjoy your new books, though.

  12. When I had my author blog on blogger, I used comment mod all the time. Liked it.

    When I'd get spammed, I'd find that turning on the captchas for a week was enough to get rid of them. Then I'd turn them off again and life would be good. I think I only had to do it twice in two and a half years.

  13. Looks like a nice mailbox this week!!

    As for the spammer, I don't get why they do it? I was hit once and so far nothing since but I guess the only way to avoid it is the word verify thingie!!

  14. Sorry about the spam. I think it comes and goes and not sure why some are hit and others aren't. I've been very very lucky since taking off my verfication, but I'm just waiting since everyone else seems to be getting it. :(

    Enjoy the reading!!

  15. I haven't been hit as hard by Ed, but I am thinking about adding the word verification stuff people seem to hate...but o well.

    Gotta get rid of the spammer. LOL

    Maybe moderation is liked by commenters? Not sure.

    Nice set of books for your reading pleasure...have a great rest of the week.
