Welcome to In My Mailbox, Reader Friends! I got some great books to share this time, but I also got an amazing gift from Simply Bags, a company that specializes in personalized bags. They sent me one in my favorite color (pink!) with my blog name embroidered on the front.
You can see that there is PLENTY of room inside for books. I've decided it will be this year's Decatur Book Festival bag, since it can fit so much! Thank goodness I'll have Luke with me this year to haul it around. Thank you a million times to Simply Bags for the beautiful bag!
Speaking of Decatur...Crystal and I headed to Decatur last weekend for a book read/signing featuring Maureen Johnson and Sarah Elynowski. We both fell in love with Little Shop of Stories last year at DBF and were so excited to see some amazing authors there. I picked up copies of Gimme A Call and The Last Little Blue Envelope and had them both signed! In addition to hearing two hilarious YA authors, I got to spend the day with Crystal, which is always awesome.
And, I let myself have a little fun at B&N.com and pick up a couple books there - they have price tags, but each book was actually half off the marked price!
The Selected Works of TS Spivet and
I Know I Am But What Are You?
And Forbidden came for review this week - I'll be reviewing it later this year for the Faith and Fiction Round Table
