In My Mailbox - Empty? Guess again!

It's the end of January and still I'm able to present you with some bookish loot despite my book buying ban. Well, let's see how long this luck will last!

For Review
Surprised By Laughter (Terry Lindvall)

Won
Ich habe den Todesengel überlebt (Eva Mozes Kor and Lisa Rojany Buccieri)


Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting the IMM meme!

  1. If this keeps happening, I might call it cheating :)) I ordered my first book on booksneeze last year but it didn't arrive, so I guess I am through with them, which might be a good sign, since there are already so many books to be read and so little time...

    1. You're confusing cheating with having extremely good luck, my dear!

      Apropos BookSneeze, it often takes forever for books to arrive (up to six weeks, though this one was actually pretty quick with only a month) and one time a book got lost in the mail, but customer service was really helpful and sent the eBook instead. They do have great non fiction titles every now and then, so a few times a year I will end up requesting a book through them.

  3. Not sure about the Schuhbeck. I kind of liked his shows together with Elmar Wepper because they were such a good team on TV but lately I hear the guy is just out for money and not such a great person after all.
    Somehow your book buying ban has only little effect on your mailbox, ;).

    1. Amazing, isn't it? Before my ban I didn't have an IMM every week, and now ... the universe is definitely shining a light on my bookshelves!

      About Schuhbeck - I never watched any of the shows, the book though looks pretty neat with lots of background info on his culinary travels. As to the cooking, I'll have to find someone to do that for me, as I'm such a lazy bum in the kitchen.

  4. Hey, at least the titles are not potentially psychotic like with your last IMM :)) Enjoy all your reads, Birgit!

    1. Not potentially psychotic? There is a cookbook and well, let's just say the thought of me cooking may inspire some weary souls to run as fast as they can ...
