So, East Coasters, how did you survive 'Nemo'? (I'm reluctant to name snow storms and I'm not bought in on this trend). We got a few feet, mostly due to drifting, and we're still digging out. Work on Monday will be a bit up in the air! (However, I got mail up through Friday and it was another amazing week, hooray!)
Delighted to once more be hosting Mailbox Monday in February.

Rating: Liked a good deal. Did I finish?: I did, although I lingered! One-sentence summary: Twenty-three essays on writing and reading by a passionate, sharp, reader and author. Reading Challenges:Dewey Decimal

On-going summer of awesome: yet another week of fantastic arrivals! In our house, birthdays are to be celebrated for thirty days, so I'm just telling myself it's the pub world helping me to celebrate! ;) This week's Mailbox Monday (hosted in July at Mrs. Q: Book Addict). As usual, click on a cover to learn more about the book (link will automatically open in a new tab/window). What did you get? Have any of these?
Seen both at Mailbox Monday -- hosted in February at Metro Reader -- and The Story Siren, my Mailbox Monday/In My Mailbox. What an insane week! And by insane, I mean, amazing. This might win for the most arrivals in a week since I've started blogging. Honestly, my jaw is on the ground -- I'm blown away and super excited to read all these. What did you get this week? Read any of these?
Well. Still digging out from the snowpocalypse but we've got power and hadn't lost it, so despite the drifts, we're winning, I think! And happily, a glut of books arrived earlier in the week meaning I still have a meaty Mailbox Monday for this week. (And plenty to read while staying in!)

Won thanks to Wonders & Marvels -- especially excited as this book was listed as a reference for Maryka Biaggio's Parlor Games, which I just loved.
