(Meme) The Mailbox Post (July 8th – 14th)

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  . 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.

The host for July is Jennifer from Mrs Q. Book Addict . If that name sounds familiar its because she is a local Montreal blogger and if you haven’t already checked out her blog then you should.

Speaking of another Montreal blogger, Tynga is  doing a mailbox post called:

You are probably wondering what has happened to me since I haven’t been posting alot lately, summer is busy for us with swimming lessons four days a week and various library activities that Michael takes part in. Plus now that he is home on summer vacation it seems like we are fighting for computer time. I usually let him on during the day while I am doing other things. Then in the evenings I am so tired because we are currently in a heat wave and I am not a summer person. The heat is sucking the life out of me.

Right now I am in the midst of reorganizing my bedroom and purging on stuff that is no longer needed or used. Plus throw in back to school shopping  and getting ready for vacation. Thankfully we are able to squeeze in a little get away and we will be heading to New York state which is just a few hours away for us. Hotel is booked and plans are being mad on what to see and do.

This is the books I got for review:

-Junk Box Jewelry 25 DIY low cost (or no cost) jewelry projects)
-Waking Storm by Sarah Porter {this is book 2 in the series}

Thanks Thomas Allen for sending me these books I am so excited to get into them.

This week I bought two books for Michael.
-Geronimo Stilton saves the Olympics graphic novel
-Geronimo Stilton This Hotel is Haunted #50 in the series

This week I borrowed one book: (yea I know really why did I borrow a book when I have tons around me?)

This past week in freebies was pretty good. I got this P&G sample pack. It included a whole bunch of coupons for the products they sent along with samples of proglide razor, scope mouthwash, febreze car plug, Mr Clean sponge, tide pod, pantene shampoo and conditioner, crest pic, downy crystals and dawn soap oh and yea another Olay tube.

Then I won a pack of Mentos gum and it came with a coupon

Then after taking these pictures I realized I had forgotten two freebies. One is a Nutella sandwich cutter with a little booklet with recipes and coupons and then I got a coupon for a free bubbles bath cleaner.

So that is all the came to my mailbox this week. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Happy Summer vacation to all the kiddies out there.
