IMM #4: 10.02.11


In My Mailbox 9.18.11



In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!

And this is the desktop background/FURY movie poster I entered into her FURY Meets MAD MEN contest:


Which, if you like it, you're welcome to download full-size, 1600 x 1200 FURY poster to use as a background image here. I uploaded it onto Deviant Art. I've never posted anything on there before, so let me know if it isn't working right!

  10. Aw, such a pretty painting! Not sure when I will start Cinder - wish I could read it along with you but I've got too many other books I have to read (and reviews to write) still! But would love to discuss it with you once I do get to read it :)
