The Mailbox Post (week of March 12th to 16th)

Can you believe its time for another IMM post. Where is the time going? I know this weekend I will be super busy as Michael has three games this weekend to play. One is tonight (Friday night) and its a play off game and then Saturday and Sunday are regional games being played about 45 minutes from here so it will be busy.

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday is originally hosted by Marcia from A girl and her books and The Printed Page. In the summer of 2010 Marcia decided she needed a change in hosting and didn’t want to rely on one blogger alone to do it because its a lot of work so she decided to put Mailbox Monday on tour and so far with great success it has made monthly stops at more then a dozen blogs and this year is booked until the end. I will actually be hosting Mailbox Monday in April.

The host for March is an awesome blogger that I follow Anna from Diary of an Eccentric.

Another host for In My Mailbox is Kristi from The Story Siren.

Be sure to check out the above blogs to see what they and others got in their mailboxes this past week.

Just a reminder that I will be the host of Mailbox Monday’s in April. I am super excited.

Sorry there isn’t a vlog this time but I do have a picture to share.

I am going to start off with the non book related items first which are freebies that came to my door.

-Post mini cereal Great Grains (Blueberry Pomegranate ancient grains) This came with our weekly flyers.

-Celestial Seasonings Black Cherry Berry herbal tea. This came with 4 tea bags and a coupon

-Lipton Green Tea Superfruit. One in Passion Fruit, Orange and Jasmine and the other one is Wild Cranberry with Pomegranate with a coupon as well.

-Then finally a $15 off card with no minimum purchase at the Bay or Home Outfitters.  Which was a nice surprise.

Now for the book goodies I got. As you can see it was a really good week.

~ From Penguin Canada I won Under My Skin by Charles de Lint. I heard this was really good so thank you Penguin Canada.
