Mailbox Monday - April 29

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Happy Monday! Hard to believe the end of April is here. I swear the year just started.

We've had a lot going on here. Last weekend was Easter Sunday. First time in 20 years I didn't cook. Yesterday was Orthodox Easter, which we also celebrate. We went to my brother-in-law's house, so all I had to do is make a pie. Felt like a true lazy slob. Of course, not cooking the past two weekends gave me some motivation to clean up around here, vacuum, and then wash the floors.

I also cleaned out a whole bunch of books to bring them to our library's annual book sale. It's always nice to share the books with others and help out the library at the same time. I'm making my final book drop today.

The Lil' Diva is off to NYC with her class on Wednesday and then to the annual Senior class outing on Friday. Hopefully the rain holds off.

The mailbox hasn't been too busy lately. I'm trying to stay on top of reviews for the next month. This one arrived and I reviewed it at The Book Connection.

Then I picked this up for free since the author sent me a PDF copy to review, but I prefer the Kindle version.

That's it from me. Hope you'll share some of your new books with us.


  1. I feel lazy a lot, I guess, since I basically stopped cooking for events a few years ago. My daughter loves doing it...and I bring things. I am lax on the dusting and vacuuming, I must admit, although the kitchen and bathrooms are in good shape. LOL.

    My eldest son will be flying in from Prague for a short visit in I now have a good reason to really clean.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Why can't cleaning be fun? I would want to do it so much more if it came with a reward.

    How exciting that your son is coming. Hope you have a wonderful visit, Laurel.

  3. There comes a time when it's okay to allow others to handle the bulk of the event. Of course my comment comes for my husband who has always been our cook. I only had to set table and clean up.
    I hope your daughter has a great, safe trip.
    I've seen Phoenix on several blogs. I hope you enjoy both your new books.
    Happy Reading!

  4. I love that Easter is always time set aside for family. Clearing out books is hard, I went through mine on the weekend and took some to the local little street library.

    1. I remember when stores weren't open on Easter, Veronica. Family time is invaded by so many things. We must cherish it.
