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 back at Mailbox Monday 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.
Last week was all about children's books. Those are just as much for me as they are for the kids in my life! What goodies came your way?

Oddkins by Dean Koontz
For review from NetGalley (ebook)
The Elves and the Shoemaker by Deanna McFadden
For review and giveaway from Sterling Children's Books
(I also received seven other fairy tales in the Silver Penny Series)

  5. Hi Debbie,

    I can remember reading 'The Elves and the Shoemaker', however many of the other classic characters from chldren's books of my youth, have retired gracefully and would be completely unknown to todays youngsters .. the only exception being the Disney characters, which re-invent themselves so well from generation to generation.

    I am also amazed at the quality of the artwork, which adorns the pages of modern children's books. I volunteer as the book specialist in a charity shop and quite often I will browse the children's book which are donated in, just to look at the pictures!!

    Some great finds this week, I hope that you and your famliy enjoy them all.


  6. Looks like some fun reading with the grandkids. Hope all is well in your little corner of the world. :)


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope you keep coming back!
