Mailbox Monday August 20
It's Monday again. Time for another Mailbox Monday post. This month's host for Mailbox Monday is 5 Minutes for Books. Be sure to check out their site. It is a wonderful site with something for everyone.
I have to apologize for my lack of visiting and commenting on your blogs. I miss visiting them. I have been working some overtime when I can plus this past week I decided it was time to say good-bye to an old friend. Betsy, the mini-van was no longer safe to drive. I have driven her since 1999 when we bought her brand new. It was time to say good-bye. My boys laughed at how I mourned her as I said good-bye. Sadly, she was headed for the scrap yard. She saw my kids grow up and served us well! I now have Heidi, the Honda Odyssey. She is used but in very good shape. She has bells and whistles which made the transition nice. It took up most of my week finding and buying her. I really hate buying cars but I found a salesman who made it as painless as possible. And his wife works for Barnes and Noble! I knew we had a connection as soon as he said that! Hopefully, now that that is behind me, I can get back to visiting blogs. I will try to hit a few everyday.
This week I received two books that I purchased.
7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker
I am not sure this is an experiment for me but I am interested to see what the author discovered during her journey.
The World as We Know It by Joseph Monninger
I loved Joseph's book, Eternal on the Water. You can check out my review here. Both books are bargain priced for $6 each on Amazon right now.
So that is what came to my house last week. What wonderful reads made their way into your home?
