The Mailbox Post

This weeks mailbox is a little different because I started the week off by picking up a gift basket that I won from a local radio station here in Montreal, 92.5 The Beat.  It was a Van Houtte’s coffee basket as you will see shortly.

I also was lucky enough to meet the announcers of the morning show which was a total surprise because I thought that I was just going to be meeting with the producer but I think he knew that I was a fan of the show and of Cat’s that he brought them down.

Shaun, Sarah, me and Cat.

I had no idea what the prize was exactly apart from it being a Van Houtte’s gift basket. So when I got it I was surprised. It ws filled with a full bag of expresso beans, and three other bags of assorted coffees which I am dying to try as those are ones I have never tried. There was also a can of cookies and a panatone cake and a frother. It was all in a reusable black box.

After picking up my gift basket I decided since I still had some time that I would stop by the Atwater library to check the sale cart to see what there was and I managed to pick these up:

-I am not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells
-How I made it to Eighteen by Tracey White
-Also known as Harper by Ann HayWoo Leal

This past week I didn’t get anything for review which is okay but the lovely Jeri Smith Ready sent me this little envelope of swag that is signed and a book plate that I can added to my copy of Shift.

When I was at Walmart this week I saw this sitting in the book section and it was too much of a deal that I couldn’t pass up. Its Switched by Amanda Hocking

So this was my week how was yours?

  1. You had a fun week even if you didn’t get any review books. It’s been a slow week for me too.
