Mailbox Monday - 3/7/2011

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme started by Marcia at The Printed Page.  You can read all about it at the Mailbox Monday blog.  Well, the mailbox has gone on tour.  This month's host is I'm Booking It.

I love this meme because it lets me take a peek into other bloggers' mailboxes and find out what they received over the last week.  I will warn you, it does lead to more books as you will find many that you want because of others mailboxes.  If you'd like to join in on the fun, post about your books and link up!

Here's what came into my house, via the mailbox, this week:

Young Fredle by Cynthia Voigt, from Knopf Books for Young Readers
Kickers Book 4: Game-Day Jitters by Rich Wallace, from Knopf Books for Young Readers
Lunch Lady and the Bake Sale Bandit by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, from Knopf Books for Young Readers

Gingerbread Man Loose in the School (F&G) by Laura Murray, from Putnam
Scritch-Scratch a Perfect Match (F&G) by Kimberly Marcus, from Penguin
Baby's First Year (F&G) by Rick Walton, from Putnam

School Days According to Humphrey (ARC) by Betty G. Birney, from Putnam
On the Volcano (ARC) by James Nelson, from Putnam
Sparrow Road (ARC) by Sheila O'Connor, from Putnam

Last but not least, I received Arranged by Catherine McKenzie, from Cindy's Love of Books.  This is a signed copy that I won on Cindy's blog.  I loved finding the surprise bookmarks tucked inside the book along with a sweet note from Cindy. The Anne Geddes bookmark is my favorite!  Thanks, Cindy;  I love my blogging friends!

I love all of the middle reader and children's books I see in your mailbox! Bebe Boy James cleaned up on our unplanned bookstore trip this week. Congrats on the win, too and enjoy your reading week!

I'm really hoping to read Arranged at some point-- I love the bookmarks you won with it!

Sparrow Road also sounds like it could be interesting-- I'll be interested in hearing more about it.

Enjoy your reading!

Shelly I am so happy you got the book win so fast. I literally just mailed it last week.

Great mailbox and enjoy the books :)

I know I have a very good children's book. More book series. Informative. Good for children and adults alike. A lot of theme. For this example, it is waiting for a knight. In the book, all related information can be found for the children.
