Mailbox Monday December 31, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday.
FOR DECEMBER: the Mailbox Monday Tour host is Suko's Notebook!

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs.  This Meme started with Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (fka The Printed Page) but is now hosted at Mailbox Monday and through various blog hosts.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. 

Well - the last week of 2012 and I did add more books to my ever expanding garden! 
How are your mailbox and TBR piles doing?

Before I list the books though, I have to show this wonderful BOOKMARK I received as a RAK gift from a very sweet blogger friend! This is a homemade bookmark with a little bird pendent (I love birds!) and it is such a sweet, touching gift! It came with a lovely Christmas card and a encouraging, handwritten (rarity!) letter. Thank you Miki! I will treasure the thoughts and the gift.
