Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday (started at The Printed Page and now a traveling meme) is at 5 Minutes For Books this month and 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.
Our vacation at the lake is over (*heavy sigh*) and since we had no internet I have some catching up to do. I'm behind on a few memes and I'll be posting reviews and giveaways. These are the goodies I got during the last week or so. I hope you had plenty of good things in your mailbox as well!
