Mailbox Monday 03-23-09

Hello! Welcome to Mailbox Monday which is hosted by The Printed Page. Here is what I received in my mailbox this week:

Matrimony by Joshua Henkin

(I feel so bad because I won this book but I forget who I won it from! Was it you? Please let me know and I will put your name here and a link to your blog! And forgive me for being totally absentminded!)

Octopussy, Dry Kidney, & Blue Spots: Dirty Themes from 18-19c Japanese Poems by Robin D. Gill

(I received a copy from LibraryThing Early Reviewers. The book is a lot heftier than I anticipated.)

Call Me Sonya Grey: A Young Girl's Poems about Death, Life, and Adolescence by Sonya Tupone Lloyd

(I received this from LibraryThing Early Reviewers or Member Giveaway, I forget which. Tribute Books sent it to me.)

What did you get in your mailbox this week? Post a link to your own Mailbox Monday post in the comments section!

NOTE: I just figured out who it was that I won Matrimony from. It was Lisa from Books on the Brain. Thank you very much, Lisa!
