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!
