The Mailbox Post (March 26th-April 1st)

Since I am this months host of Mailbox Monday, I will be keeping the weekly Mailbox Monday Posts on top so that everyone can find the Mailbox post easily and leave their links. Please note that all new posts are following this one.

Can you believe its time for another IMM post? Where is the time going?

I am so happy that the weekend is finally here and for once its a non hockey weekend.Although at the time of writing this Michael is at a hockey practice. His last 7am practice. It will be nice not to have to run from one of the city to the other.

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 was the awesome blogger  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.

I am super excited because I am the host of Mailbox Monday for April. I am looking forward to discovering some new blogs this month. If you follow me please let me know so that I can go back and follow you.

  3. Hi Cindy,

    It is good to have you host ‘Mailbox Monday’ during the month of April.

    I just cannot believe the amount of books that you have amassed in just one week, your TBR shelves must be full to bursting!

    I checked out all of your finds, however it quickly became clear that we may have some fundamental differences in our choice of reading genre.

    The paranormal and dystopian genres are just really not something that I read on a regular basis, but I hope that you enjoy them all.

    Have a good week,
