Monday Mailbox 7/1/12: Mail Delay

Monday Mailbox is hosted this month by Mrs. Q Book Addict.

It has been a very long week. Family has been in and out of my apartment, I've got new furniture, new art on the walls, I've met relatives I'd never met before or whom I hadn't seen in about 25 years. 

My mother tried to leave me a copy of a Loretta Young biography. I said no, thank you. Rather vehemently. She did, however, manage to sneak a Halloween I-Spy book onto my shelves, courtesy of my grandmother's apartment. She also left me a golden book, The Little Red Hen. 

I then picked up a copy of The Bridge to Terabithia from my building's junk bench. Like I need more books that will make me cry. And somehow, in all of that, I even managed to get up two reviews this week: The Mercury Fountain and Dumb History

As for this week's giveaway for The Bay of Foxes, the winner was

MONIQUE H.

Please email me at laurs@theliterarygothamite.com with your shipping info.

To ALL who have won books from this blog in the last month, I have not forgotten you, and I'm so sorry about the delay. With all this mess, I still have not made it to a post office. I'm going to try my darndest to get to a post office this week and mail out all of your books. I will email each of you individually when the books have been shipped. 

Thank you for your patience, and thank you everyone for your lovely words, thoughts and prayers. 
My family and I appreciate your kindness.

  1. Your building has books on its junk bench? I love the cover of The Little Red Hen.

  2. I have never read The Bridge to Terebithia, although my classroom library boasts several copies. I think I've just shied away from it because of what I've heard about the ending, even though I know it has to be a powerful and worthy read.
