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!
