In My Mailbox - March 1, 2015
Hey y’all!I’m here today to do In My Mailbox, a weekly meme previously hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Since she’s no longer blogging, it’s morphed into Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s where bloggers, authors, or readers post about the books they got in their mailboxes or somehow acquired that week.Blog-wise, this week had two posts. I wrote about struggling to find my voice as a writer and a blogger - where the two worlds interact - earlier this week. Yesterday, I compiled three of my favorite February rereads and talked about the pros-and-cons of each read.Business-wise, I spent most of this week responding to email. I haven't been a great blogger recently (blame lacrosse and junior year) but I managed to add to a few spreadsheets that REALLY needed updating and royally embarrass myself in front of a publisher (but hey, it made me memorable.)I worked a ton for my bookstore, the Oxford Exchange, and got some really fun photos over on my Instagram. The fun part about OE is that I meet the most fascinating people - professors, travelers, workers, artists. I hear conversations in other languages, meet coin enthusiasts and passionate people and literate people. Unfortunately, the downside to working there is that I was tempted by quite a few titles and spent much more money than I needed to. Working at a bookstore is dangerous, y'all.Also, my twin sister went to Barnes & Noble and got some books that I can't wait to dig into! I'm in a bit of a reading slump so I've unfortunately been unable to finish the sixteen titles that I'm in the middle of, so I'm hoping that one of those will cure my unfortunate I'll Meet You There "book hangover".
Without further ado, here's what I got in my mailbox in the past few weeks.
(much love to the Oxford Exchange, particularly for the rose I took from the break room - I have a weakness for flowers.)
(Barnes & Noble is pretty cool too.)
What books did y'all get this week?
