In My Mailbox
Holy book load Batman – this is a mailbox to beat any others I have posted. The BEA bloggers mailboxes are going to be awesome to see and you know there are mail men and women all over the country groaning under the loads of books they have delivered this week.
I had 3 boxes total that I shipped to myself from New York’s BEA event and a bonus package from Simon and Schuster. The final box arrived on my doorstep this morning. The dogs were barking and I ran to the door to see my mailman lugging the 38 pound box of books. I went to take it from him and he said, “I can get it, it’s heavy.”
I responded, “Oh I know, I packed it.”
Anyway – trying to figure out how to do a mailbox post this week was tricky. I put together a Vlog and when I ended discovered it was 28 minutes. Wha??? So delete delete … and instead I video taped the books adding some words to make it fun and came in at 9 minutes. Better, and hopefully you will enjoy the video.
Thanks to Kristi (who was awesome to meet!) at Story Siren for this weekly meme and a chance for me to inventory my books.
Ok… hopefully you survived that. I want to post one more thing that came in my mailbox (Don’t groan…. this one will be brief):
Mmmmmm hmmmmm…. that is an official swag bag from the BBC (Book Blogger Convention) last Friday. I am going to post a giveaway for this bag of goodies available to one reader who did not have the opportunity to attend BEA this year. More details on that on Tuesday.
Also – Wednesday June 9th is my one year Blogoversary and you are all invited. This is a time when I celebrate with all of you and there will be giveaways – awesome ones. And I may just give away stuff all week because I am that excited and that’s the way I roll! Isn’t it all just so trippy (I told Heidi Kling on Twitter that I was going to use this word in my post!)
