Mailbox Mondays


(Hosted by The Printed Page)

The Printed Page asks: What was in your mailbox this week?

Today UPS dropped off a brand-new copy of Robert Goolrick's "A Reliable Wife" to read and review. Thanks to Harper-Collins Canada for the copy!

Yesterday the power was off in our neck of the woods for several hours. They must have been having problems with something because the power was off on Saturday night for about 45 minutes as well. Jay and I played outside with the kids for an hour or two and then decided that we would go and browse at Wal-Mart for something to do. Our Wal-Mart is on the other side of town so we were hoping that they hadn't been affected by the power outage. We loaded up the kids and our neighbor, Karan, who was bored too and went off to shop!


I picked up a few things that we needed and then happened to pass by a table full of books for 30% off. I found a copy of "Slumdog Millionaire" on the table and decided to pick it up. I've been wanting to read this one for a while and was excited to find a discount copy! It would have been cheaper online, but then I would have had to wait to read it until I had a rather large order so that I didn't have to pay for shipping. So, two new books this week!
