The Mailbox Post

As you know Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Marcia has decided to put Mailbox Monday on a blog tour and for the month of January the Mailbox Monday host is Gilion and she blogs over at Rose City Reader.

One of the things that I really wanted to accomplish over the bloggiesta weekend was trying to incoperate a slide show into a blog post. Let me tell you it was hard. I googled it up and found a bunch of places to check and I had problems with most of them so I figured everyone always says you want to know something go on twitter and ask, well I did that and I honestly have to say that no one replied. So that left me pretty discouraged. Thankfully I emailed a friend and she came to my rescue.

So here is my slide show of the books I got last week in the mail.

Now that I know how to do this with photobucket. The next time I will edit the photos better.

  • Kids Bathroom Book- Knock Knock & Riddles
  • Fine Cooking Magazine
  • Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin & Ill by Harry Bliss
  • Caleb’s Story by Patricia MacLachlan

So this is what I got in my mailbox last week, what about you?

Do you like the slideshow? I want to know what you guys think. I like it because you get to see the covers, what do you think?

  1. You slideshow looks great!!

  2. Cindy, I love the slide show! What a great idea. Enjoy all your great books. I developed a bad case of carpel tunnel syndrome and my time on the computer is limited.

  3. Wow, Cindy, you had a great week! I have to tell you those Kid’s Bathroom Books cracked me up. What does Michael think of them? Anna and the French Kiss and The Weird Sisters are supposed to be fantastic!

  4. That slide show was great! I’m so proud of what you accomplished from your Bloggiesta weekend! Very curious about the Kid’s Bathroom Books; can’t wait to see what you and Michael think of them!
