Mailbox Monday

I did get some books in the mail this past week (and one today) so I thought I'd mention the goodies. I had ordered a birthday present for a friend from amazon and to make up the free shipping amount, I tucked a book in for myself as well. Shocker, I know! I am contemplating doing a triathlon so I was pleased to see a sparkly new copy of Slow Fat Triathlete by Jayne Williams come through my mailbox. I don't know if I should just do one without reading the book or if it would have information that didn't scare the pants off of me and that would make me even more eager to try one. We'll see. Might put the whole thing off 'til next year anyway so I have a chance of being a slow, less fat triathlete. :-) The other book I got arrived today and was a book I won from Luanne. It's Love and Other Natural Disasters by Holly Shumas and I could have a hard time not jumping into it right away but I should really hold off until I leave Russia during the Napoleanic Wars (War and Peace, which is giving me no peace right now). We'll see how long I manage to stay submerged in Tolstoy's world before I simply must have a break! If you are curious about what others in the book blogging world have gotten in the mail, check out The Printed Page for links.


  1. Well I must admit "Slow Fat Triathlete" sounds like it would be tailor-made for me ... minus the triathlete part! I hope you do the triathlon ... it might be fun. I would read the book though first ... might get some good hints!

    And the other book has such a fun title. I would be hard pressed to keep on with Tolstoy if I had that waiting for me!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today! It is much appreciated!

  2. Kristen,
