In my Mailbox Monday...

In my Mailbox Monday originates from two blogs: The Printed Pageand The Story Siren. I am using it to highlight any books that come into my house the previous week, whether they are from the library, from a store, from a friend or actually in the mailbox.

There nothing like receiving surprise books in the mail! I had signed up to judge for a contest a while ago and totally forgot! So I was more than pleased to see a book-shaped package on my doorstep this week containing...
Choices by Pamela Nowak

and Love is a Four-legged Word by Kandy Shepherd.

Also, we made a trip to the library this week, coming home with 8 picture books, an Elmo CD, a Veggie Tale movie, and 2 books for me. For myself, I got the first book in the young adult series, Mandie, by Lois Gladdy. They've been around forever, but I have never read any of them. I figured I'd check it out. I started reading it to my daughter, but I think she is a little young.
Also, I got out The Secret by Beverly Lewis, (which will be reviewed this week).


  1. Megan, thanks ever so much for the encouraging comment on...Encourage an Author!!

    It's great to meet this way! Please visit my blog and leave a comment when you have a chance, and I'll link us so we can become bloggites!


  2. Oh, the Mandie Books. What fun! I loved those when I was a girl. My sister and I both read them and now she has passed some on to her stepdaughter. My favorite was Mandie and The Ghost Bandits (#3). It is the first one that I read in the series and I received it as a gift. I hope your daughter will enjoy them some day too.

    I haven't heard of Choices or Love is a Four-legged Word. The latter looks like one I'd enjoy.

  3. Great Mailbox. Surprise packages are great. I hope you enjoy them all.

  4. Such fun to get a surprise pack in the mail. Have a good week and enjoy all your new books.

  5. Aww, Love is a Four-Legged Word sounds sweet! Enjoy!

  6. Love is a Four-Legged Word sounds cute! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  7. Love is Four-Legged Word sounds very cute. Don't you love surprises?

  8. Can't say I've heard of any of those but the Love is a Four-Legged Word does sound good.

    My IMM is up.

  9. Enjoy your books. Thank you for stopping by my post.
