The Mailbox post

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 February is DC Metro Reader.

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.

Can you believe that we are already into February? I found that the month of January literally flew by.

So this past week was a pretty big book week and I am thinking that next week will be a big week as well although I am not sure.

The Mailbox Post (actually is the week of bought books)

Its hard to believe its that time of the week when you get to see what books came to my door this past week. Is it just me or does it seem like the days are flying by?

(Meme) Books Bought(I went a little crazy with book buying!)

Its that time of the week again when I get to share what book goodies I got in my mailbox for the past week.

As the week was progressing I quickly realized that I would have to break down my IMM vlog into two vlogs because for some reason whenever I use my digital camera to record my vlogs I can’t seem to record past 7 minutes. I am still new to the whole vlogging and I have to admit I was a huge chicken and didn’t want to attempt to add to another video to the vlog. Mainly because when I am editing my vlog I encounter numerous problems or errors or basically mess up to the point I feel like I am starting all over again.

Before you view this video I should warn you in advance of the rumbling noice you will hear. I don’t think it over powers me speaking but if it does I apologize. The city is still working on the street behind my house and as I was prepairing to record there was silence and of course Murphy’s Law guess what happens? Yes you got it, noice.

I hope you enjoy the vlog. I apologize in advance if I just made your wishlist and TBR piles grow.
