In My Mailbox: 3/28/10


In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have acquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began..(This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie
I have not participated in the last few weeks because everyday life has been quite overwhelming and eventful. I am glad to say that things have calmed down and am very happy for my new reads. I hope that everyone else has been as fortunate. These have been my books for the last few weeks. What has been in yours?

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
