Mailbox Monday: So Many Books, So Little Time


It's beginning to look a lot like Mailbox Monday, the ingenious meme that enables us to share the new books or book-related goodies that appear, almost as if by magic, in our mailboxes.  Created by Marcia, who has had various book blogs and now runs the Mailbox Monday blog, this popular meme has been on tour for the past few years.  I'm fortunate to be the host for the month of December.






This past week, I did not receive any new books in the mail, but I finally got the nightshirt I ordered from Potpourri, a T-shirt with a logo that describes our shared "predicament"--so many books, so little time.  Due to its popularity, the shirt has been on backorder for about a month, so I was overjoyed to at last see the package in my mailbox this past week.  I look forward to wearing this oversized T-shirt while I read.  My hope is that it will give me permission to begin my reading earlier in the evening, or to linger with a book in the morning, or even to spend an entire day reading!  ;)




What new books (or book-related items) appeared in your mailbox recently, or arrived in your home in some other fashion?  Please leave a comment after linking.  Thank you!

  8. If you can't get something you can read, get something you can wear. Makes perfect sense to me. :)
