Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted all this month by Diary Of An Eccentric.
The lovely Deb of The Reading Frenzy also moderates the Fiction General Discussion Board on the Barnes & Noble's book club site. She had reviewed Bereft by Chris Womersley on her blog and it was a book I thought I may really enjoy. So when Deb emailed me and asked if I wanted to participate in a conversation about the book in May for the B&N board, I jumped at the chance. When I got the ARC in the mail the other day, I was even more excited.
I received a trade paperback of Asgard Park by Ronald Simonar from the publicist for review.
I received a trade paperback of The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.
I need to learn to never go into Best Buy without an actual goal in mind. Friday, when I decided to meander into the store, I really had no clue what I was looking for. So when I ended up walking out with Underworld: Rise of the Lycans on DVD for $4, Celebration by Madonna (think The Immaculate Collection plus her newer hits), and a Triple Feature CD featuring 3 of Whitney Houston's albums for $9, I was lucky to get out without even more.
I guess I've been in a music centered mood lately. I took a trip to the flea market today and walked out with 9 vinyl records for $1 each. Only three of them were for me. I picked up Winner In You by Patti Labelle, Whenever You Need Somebody by Rick Astley, and Magic by The Jets.
