The caption on the mailbox above read "redneck mailbox" but frankly I can see a lot of positives there. Obviously, it's a fine example of repurposing, huh? One big old hunk of plastic that's not ending up in the landfill. And man, just think how much the mailman would love me if I built of those things...he'd save so many trips up to the door when all you people make me order books.
So, before I get on with the previous week's loot, let me say a big thank you to Marcia at The Printed Page for hosting Mailbox Monday!
This came from Paperback Swap. I honestly don't remember ordering it. It's not that I dispute the fact that I did. But I really don't remember it. Any way you look at it, that's just not a good sign, is it?
The blame for all three of these falls squarely on Nymeth! What am I going to do with her?!! Except, the obvious, I suppose...thank her for expanding my reading horizons in so many wonderful ways!
When I was trying to put together a list for the Graphic Novels Challenge, I came across this title. Just sounded good.
No excuses. Total impulse buy.
And finally, there's this one. But it shouldn't count against me, because it's for the science course I ordered from The Teaching Company to use for school next year. The fact that I may read it for the Science Challenge is not relevant.
Just wanted to let you know that if I should disappear for a while, there's no need to worry. The computer is totally flaking on me here. (And yes, I have everything backed up this time.) It's acting just like it did before it croaked back in November. We'll get it to "the shop" next week once Rich gets home. But if it dies in the meantime, I won't even have his laptop to use, so I'll be incommunicado for a few days. But hopefully it will hang in there, and you're reading these last few sentences will have been a complete waste of time. ;)
