Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted my Marcia at the Printed Page.  Here’s a quick look at what was added to my TBR pile this past week.  TBR pile?  Yes, I mean it literally!  It’s time to spring clean the bookcases, get my books off the floor and give them the respect they deserve [...]

Mailbox Monday: March 9, 2009

Each Monday, Marcia at the Printed Page asks what has come into our hands in the past week.  Today I have two to add:

I liked the message in Three Cups of Tea, and even borrowed the phrase recently when I wrote about my upcoming Breast Cancer 3-Day walk this summer.  If you’re not familiar with [...]

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page.  It’s where we dish about books that have come into our hands in the past week.

My kids are home on a snow day today (we got the automated call announcing the school closure before dinner on Sunday!), so I’ve resurrected the mailbox-in-a-snowbank [...]

Mailbox Monday: February 23, 2009

 Who likes going on vacation?

Who likes coming home and going thru all the mail that has accumulated in your absence?

Welcome to another edition of Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page.

Today is President’s Day, a U.S. Federal Holiday, so nothing will be delivered today (sob, weep, woe is me!).  Here’s a look at what came into the house over the past week:

Two (yes, count ‘em, ONE … TWO!) beautiful books for upcoming author [...]

Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page, is a weekly round-up of the books that have crossed over my doorstep this week:

Welcome to another edition of Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page.  Here’s a peek at some of the books that have come into my hands this past week (and, no, that’s not my child struggling to put a letter in the snow-covered mailbox, I downloaded the photo from the Internet).

Mailbox Monday: January 26, 2009

Welcome to Mailbox Monday!  This is not my mailbox, my snowbank, my house, or my snowsuit-clad child!  I pulled the picture from the Parade magazine website after looking for a “mailbox in the snow” pic.  I didn’t want to post mine, since the snow is not freshly-fallen and looks, well, dirty like the snow in [...]
