Mailbox Monday: Earth Day Books
This is the first time I’ve participated in Mailbox Monday
. I don’t participate on a weekly basis for a simple reason: I don’t have a mailbox. Since we retired we spend all of our time traveling around in our RV. The mail all goes to our daughter in Indiana.
She collects it and when she gets a full box she asks us, “Where should I send this mail?” We usually pick a small town near where we are traveling, give her the zipcode and she sends it via General Delivery. We’ve never had a problem. (I love the USPS.)
The past month or so we have been at our daughter’s home. It’s been fun to get the daily mail. I want to share one particular box of books that came this past week. I was the lucky winner of six books during the past Read-A-Thon. I thoroughly enjoyed that particular 24 hour period of time. It was so great to tell the whole world to go away while I spent an entire day just reading. But to win a prize while having fun?!! That was, as they say, icing on the cake.
This prize came from the good people at Hachette Book Group
. The entire box was in celebration of Earth Day. Here is what I got:
The Rural Life by Verlyn Klinkenborg
A picture book by Patrick McDonnell called The Gift of Nothing
The next Dewey’s Read-A-Thon has already been set. Mark your calendar for October 24-25.
Thanks to Marcia at The Printed Page for sponsoring Mailbox Monday. I hope I can participate again sometime soon.
