In My Mailbox (10) and Happy Holidays




In My Mailbox...is a meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren, and is a way for bloggers to share all the bookish (books they've won, been given, given for review, checked out from the library)  goodness that recently came into their possession.


"Here's the mail, it never fails.  
 It makes me want to wag my tail.   
When it comes I want to wail - Maillllllll!"
 (Mail Song from Blue's Clues)

In My Mailbox This Week...


This week my parents and brothers surprised me with an early Christmas gift, that yes, did arrive in my mailbox...
A Kindle Fire!!!!!!!!
Eeep! I was so surprised, excited, and flabbergasted. I never expected such an extravagent and awesome gift. And itsn't just so purdy?!
Now I loved my old Kindle but the Kindle Fire is just beyond amazing. The color, video, internet and reading quality is phenomenal! If you've thought about upgrading, you so should. This is one spectacular tablet!
