Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.

First of all, I won a $25 Amazon gift card from Lynne at Lynne's Little Corner of the World, in honor of her 1,000th post giveaway. Thanks Lynne! I haven't decided yet what books I will be buying...such a hard decision for me to choose!

I only had one book in my mailbox last week and it's a good thing. I've been feeling overwhelmed with all of the books piling up that I need to review and then the stacks of other books that I want to read. I've been much more selective in the books that I am buying and accepting to review so that I can catch up on the reviews I have already committed to. Also, I went through my books and sold a box at Half Price Books and have a stack of books that I am passing on to friends as well as a stack of books to donate to my local library.

The Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser

Description from GoodReads:
Nestled in the Northwest is a quaint little town that its quirky residents are proud to call home. With charming shops lining its one main thoroughfare, Lumby is home to the oldest apple tree in the county and the smallest bank in the state. And though it's hours from the nearest big city, readers will always find Lumby close to their hearts. When Mark and Pam Walker, a vacationing couple from the East Coast, decide to restore Lumby's ramshackle Montis Abbey and turn it into an inn, it takes a while for the locals to warm up to them. Especially the irascible William Beezer, owner of The Lumby Lines-the newspaper "worth the paper it's printed on." At every turn, he tries to hinder the Walkers' efforts. But the couple soon learns that for every citizen like William, there are many more willing to lend a hand-and that Lumby isn't just a place, it's a way of life.
