I was blessed to receive a bunch of books last week! Mailbox Monday is a meme hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page blog,
The prior week, I was feeling generous; I added a few books to my bookmooch.com inventory and responded ‘sure, why not?’ to everyone who asked if I would send to their country. For just under $100, I sent books to Bulgaria, South Korea, United Kingdom, Belgium, Canada, a US military base, as well as state-side to Pennsylvania, Montana, Wisconsin, and Ohio.
Which meant that I had a ton of points to MOOCH with! Along with winning a contest from Chris over at Stuff As Dreams Are Made On… Thanks Chris!!
Here’s what I got:
Lois Lowry’s The Giver
William Goldman’s The Princess Bride – blame to Raych
Tracy Chevalier: The Virgin Blue (for the Dewey Challenge)
Shooting the Boh by Tracy Johnston (blame Eva)
undiscovered gyrl / Allison Burnett – from Chris
The Bright Forever by Lee Martin (Caribou’s Mom?)
I am Madame X by Gioia Diliberto (no blame; I liked the cover)
And last but never least, I have to shout to the rooftops my appreciation for a blogger that I consider a super dooper friend. I had seen a lovely contest over at Christina’s Stacked Blog and sent out an email to friends to hurry and enter. Teeni did just that and WON!
But that’s not the end of the story. She gave the prize to me! SURPRISE! So sweet. This is what she sent me:
Shelly Kommer’s Bookplates – Visit her ETSY shop here.
