I haven’t done an In My Mailbox post in ages, even if I’ve been sort of steadily getting books ever since my last post. Oops. I guess I was just lazy. I meant to do an IMM post for my Christmas loot but laziness got to me, and truth be told, I’m just not in the mood to post about it anymore. You’ll just see some of the books I got then in my reviews soon, when I get to read some of them. :)
But let’s try again. March is my favorite month because it’s my birthday month! I thought I’d turn over a new leaf as far as posting IMMs are concerned, so instead of a one-time big-time post, I thought I’d post in increments (assuming I get more before this month ends :D)!
So here we go — my first birthday mailbox post! :) I got some really cool stuff recently, and some of them were things I was totally not expecting! First, my favorite artist, Dave Barnes, released Stories to Tell, his newest album, the other day. :D Cue Squee here!
I had it pre-ordered on iTunes, and when I got the email that it’s ready for download, I turned on my phone’s data and used it to download the album on my iPod immediately! I’ve been listening to it since I got it and as usual, Mr. Barnes delivers. ♥
Second. I got home yesterday and saw an unopened pink courier package on the kitchen counter. Since it was still unopened, I was pretty sure it was mine. Inside:
Okay, who sent the package wasn’t a mystery really, because I already saw it from the paper included in the courier slip. :P I just thought it had more suspense that way. But since you don’t know yet, here’s what’s written on the postcard:
Thanks so much, Chachic! :) I also received a lion themed postcard earlier in the month from her (no picture, sorry!) from her Puffin postcard set, and as you can see from this photo, this came from her Ladybird postcard set. Thanks so much for the thoughtful gift! :D (Oh and yes, the lion here looks very Curran :D)
Hm, you know what? Now that I thought about it, I realized that I got all my Sarah Addison Allen books as gifts from friends! That’s probably some kind of gift-giving book magic. :)
