In My Mailbox

This week was very light for In My Mailbox (hosted by The Story Siren), but I am not complaining. If you saw my post from yesterday, I have a few things to read.

From Goodreads, FirstReads:
The Insider -
First corporate attorney Will Connelly's colleague hurtles to his death outside his office window. Within days, Will is a prime suspect in a murder, the target of an S.E.C. insider trading investigation, and a pawn in a complex criminal scheme involving the Russian mafia and a ruthless terrorist plot. Now, to top things off, he must ensure a deadly enemy doesn't gain access to the nation's most sensitive and confidential information-that has the power to do incalculable, irrevocable harm.

Finalist for the 2011 International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel!




Borrowed from Work:
A Love That Multiplies: An Up-close View of How They Make It Work -
In this second book from the Duggars, they focus on the principles that equip them to face life's challenges—drawing from their most recent challenge with the 3-month premature birth of their newest child, Josie. They also share the new challenges their older children are facing as they prepare for adult life. Central to the book is a section on the principles that the Duggars have consistently taught their children. These simply worded principles are basic to the Duggar family and are shared in a way that other parents can incorporate in their own homes. A special chapter on homeschooling gives valuable information to parents who are considering this route or are already invested in it. The world continues to be amazed by their nineteen well-groomed, well-behaved, well-schooled children and their home life, which focuses on family, financial responsibility, fun—and must importantly, faith. The Duggars show how parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several.
I couldn't resist reading this one right when it came out of the box. I had no idea this was book #2. Gotta get my hands on book #1. I enjoyed watching the tv show when I had that channel, but now that I rarely watch tv, I'll just have to read their books.

What came in your MAILBOX?

The Insider is an awesome read. Hope you enjoy it.

When I used to watch tv I loved the Duggars. They are so real. And it was refreshing to know their family was natural, without fertility treatments. It seems like most family shows on now are the result of fertility treatments.
