Mailbox Monday

Thank you to Marcia at The Printed Page for putting on the weekly Mailbox Monday, a place where I discover so many wonderful new books.

Check out her blog and post all the new books you acquired last week.

I didn't receive any books in the mail last week but I did get something better. My contest win from Nely at All About {n} came in. A beautiful book cover from Shanna at Hide-a-Book.

I have to admit I am kind of obsessed with it. It is an adorable protector of all evil that tries to harm my books (that cute ribbon is the bookmark). Plus, when I go with my husband to his work gym I don't have to worry about all the Army guys judging the covers of my books. The only bad thing is now I am going to have to buy more and I want Christmas to come again so I can give them as gifts. Thanks so much Shanna and Nely.

The other thing that I am really excited about is that it is March 1 which means the deal I made with my husband about not buying books is over. The curse is broken!!!! I am going to the store later and buying The Stolen Crown by Susan Higginbotham.
