Mailbox Monday: New Books and a Sweater for Daisy


Last week, I received two books in the mail, House of Miracles by Ulrica Hume, and The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom, which arrived for an upcoming tour with TLC.  I also got an adorable, handmade, crocheted sweater from Naida, the bookworm, for Daisy, my feisty little Chihuahua blend puppy.  As you can see, the color and fit are perfect for her.  Thank you very much, Naida!

Created by Marcia from To Be Continued, Mailbox Monday is a meme that gives book lovers a reason to relish Mondays.  This month, Gina from Book Dragon's Lair is hosting Mailbox Monday.

What new books did you add to your shelves recently?

  3. I've never actually read a book by Mitch Albom, but I know so many people who love his books. It makes me think if I give him a chance, I'd probably enjoy myself as well.

  4. Both books look good. I read The Five People You Meet In Heaven and think I'd like The First Phone Call From Heaven.

  21. I love the sweater and Daisy is so sweet! Naida is so talented! I wish Sammy would wear stuff like that but no. He runs around pulling and biting until he manages to pull it off. LOL.
