D is for Delivery

Yes, I'm temporarily renaming In My Mailbox for the A to Z Challenge. These are some books I've received, in the mail and in person, in the past month or so. Unfortunately, I haven't begun any of them, in a attempt to be a good steward of my time and my opportunities at university. So, some books I hope to get round to reading soon:

I won this book in a giveaway on Faith's blog. This was one of those nice
surprises that I had forgotten about until the day it arrived!

Another giveaway winner-- this time it was Sarah's blog.
And since Sarah and I live in the same city, no mailing was
required-- we had brunch together instead. :)

This rather-abused book came to us in a huge box of books
that someone gave us. I've never read Agatha Christie
(shame, I know), so I'm looking forward to it!

And this one I actually purchased. I'm afraid to start reading it
because everyone has been raving about it-- no homework will
get done while I'm reading it straight through, I can assure you!
What's in your mailbox?

Nothing like a delivery truck pulling up to the door. A delivery truck with books in it? Heaven.

I also love quilting and the new magazines come in like "eye candy"~! Great "D"...Happy Mailboxing..!

w00t w00t! Glad the book made it there safely :) also... you've never read Agatha Christie??!? For shame... ;) I have a distinct preference for her Poirot novels or standalones (not so much the Miss. Marple books).

You can never have to many books. =)

I found a free book in my mailbox one day, too. What a nice surprise!Delivery is a very good "D". I also like the positivity of your Blessings list.
Good Luck with the A-Z Challenge.

I found you with the ‘surprise me’ button. I’m a new follower of yours. I'd love to have you check out my take on the A to Z Challenge, comment and follow, if you'd like.

@mybabyjohn: I agree!!

@Petty: Will do, thanks!

@Margaret: Oooh... I think I want a peek into your mailbox.

@Faith: I know, it's ridiculous. :( Don't worry; I am working on remedying the problem!

@Tiger: I agree!

@Kathy: A free book is certainly among the best surprises ever, methinks.

I love the sound of the top one, I hope you will let us know if it's good, also Across the Universe since it seems to be popular. Hope you find time to read soon :)

Katie said...

I love Agatha Christie! I could only hope to hold stock in a bookstore someday...lol. Maybe someday I'll start one of my own (with my own books!).

I am loving the A to Z challenge so far. I am a little behind (due to a late start) but you are welcome to come on over and check mine out at www.gogogeo.net.

Enjoy!
Katie

I love it when the mail truck or UPS truck pulls up and brings me a book!

@Catherine: I like the sound of it, too, but I'm afraid it will have to wait until after the semester ends.

@Katie: What a great idea!

@Gregg: Me, too! Or, for that matter, when they bring me anything.

I love books, I love having books delivered. Looks like you've got some good books to look forward to.

Hi Su, nice to meet you through the challenge :) I like your posts, and also enjoyed reading more about you in your about me tab :) Hope to see you around during the challenge. Thank you for sharing your world!

Su said...

@Better: I do! I can't wait to get to them!

@Bz: Nice to meet you, too. Thanks for stopping by!

I know what you mean about ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. I was nervous too, after reading so many glowing reviews. Then I read one that gave it 3 out of 5 stars and I relaxed a bit. LOL So now I'm 75 pages in and enjoying it so far. Except I was totally thrown off for a bit in the 2nd chapter when I didn't realize it'd switched to a new character's POV. Heh!

Su said...

I'm just worried that I'll get nothing else done once I start reading. Must wait until I have no homework!
