Monday Mailbox

It was a very slow week for the mail this week. Each day I went to the mailbox and gazed forlornly into the box but only found junk mail and bills until finally, one day, there was a book. Oh the handsprings that ensued! It was destined to be the only book that arrived by post this week and is all the more cherished for that. Of course, I won't admit that getting fewer books than usual was a good thing since my self-restraint in a physical store was less than inspiring or that I still haven't posted any new reviews, despite having 18 books backed up in the need to be reviewed queue on the desk. Only one new mailbox book should, in theory, allow me more time to read what I already have and to review those that are patiently awaiting review, right? Well...maybe. But I do hope more books come next week!

This week from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer bonus batch, I recieved Tattoo Machine by Jeff Johnson.

As always, if you want to see what others found in their mailboxes this past week, check out Marcia's blog at The Printed Page.


  1. Sometimes I think we need those slow weeks! Although I can't help but feel disappointed it nothing arrives!!

  2. Enjoy your new book! I'm glad for slow mail weeks because it lets me catch my breath a bit.

  3. The title made me chuckle. :) Happy reading.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
