Mailbox Monday

This is my first ever Mailbox Monday! It's also a slightly sad one because I only received 2 books, but still... it's 2 books!

I received "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" by Laurie King through Paperback Swap (received a book in the middle of this series as a gift and since I'm kind of obsessive about reading things in order I had to get this), and I got "Jane Bites Back" by Michael Thomas Ford from the publisher. I won JBB through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, and I'm so glad I did!

Also, I've just realized that I haven't read one single word in a book in a week! That's horrible!!! I can hardly believe it myself. I did spend almost 6 days on the couch with that terrible cold, and then my first day up and functioning was spent at Job #1 and then at a party... and then I spent most of the next day on the couch again. Not good.

However, today I had a really good day. My parents came over to help me get a little more organized. (It might sound strange, but I had bags and boxes of paperwork that I needed to get through and I do a much better job if someone is watching me and helping me sort through it all.) I got my bills in order - whew! And, I found my new planner! Hallelujah! I was getting ready to buy a new one, too. All in all it was a good day.

I'm looking forward to reading (a lot) tomorrow and to more cleaning and sorting. Here's hoping I can finish this book and move on to the next one in the stack by the end of the week!

p.s. Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.


  1. Poor you all sick and not reading anything! I hope you have a chance to enjoy your new books. :)

  2. I know, it stunk! I'm really looking forward to reading both of these, especially the Jane book. Still have to finish "The Brightest Star in the Sky" though before I tackle it! :0)

  3. The Beekeeper's Apprentice is supposed to be a good one! I hope you enjoy it.

  4. Thanks, bermudaonion, I hope I will! I just heard someone talking about the series and how great it is when I was at the library yesterday. I may have to move it up in my TBR pile!
