Mailbox Monday, February 15, 2010

I just realized I forgot to update this weeks Mailbox Monday news. For those who have already read this, I am sorry. I am going to post an update about Mystery in a short while. I am off from school today, but it is because of President's Day, not a snow day. :)


As most of you know Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Thank you once again Marcia for hosting this weekly event. :)

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.


This week in my mailbox:



Making Rounds with Oscar, by David Dosa
Stones into Schools, by Greg Mortenson
A Cottage by the Sea, by Ciji Ware
The Night Fairy, by Laura Amy Schlitz





The Night Fairy: (From the back cover)

"Flory was a night fairy. She was born a little before midnight, when the moon was full. For the rest of her life-and fairies can live hundreds of years-that hour, a little before midnight, would be the time when her magic was the strongest
."

A snow day with no snow! How extraordinary.

I love the sound of the Fairy one. I shall have to look it up.

I definitely want to read the one about Oscar the cat.

I hope Mystery is OK.

How is Mystery doing? Hope you are having fun playing and enjoying the new books. I just got the Ciji Ware book too! So excited.

Vivienne...Yes! Last week they were painting a doom and gloom forecast for feet of snow. We only got a small dusting, yet all the schools were closed in anticipation of the snowfall totals predicted. I'm not complaining..it was fun anyway and I didn't have to shovel. YUCK!

Iliana..Yes! I'm so excited about the Ciji Ware book. I loved Island of the Swans. Can't wait to read this one.
Mystery is still having trouble. I'm going to post about her since everyone has been so caring about her condition. Thanks for asking.
