Mailbox Monday


Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page. What books came into your home last week?

To answer my own question:

El huevo de ganso grande

Le grand oeuf d'oie

Il grande uovo di oca

in any language, otherwise known as.....

The Big Goose Egg


Yup, zip, zilch, nada, nothin'....

*sigh

And although I'm really sorta bummed, its just sorta. I'm almost secretly relieved. The stacks are building up a bit around here and it doesn't hurt to have a quiet catch up week every now and then! (At least that's what I keep telling myself!)

*sigh

Ignore my wee little moment of angst and go check out other mailboxes HERE, maybe you'll find your next favorite book!

oh forbid we don't keep adding to the tbr pile! lol

Serena said...

I like weeks when I don't have more books, but that could be because the TBR stacks tower over me these days!

A goose egg week is good once in a while. It helps lower the elevation of Mt. TBR. Have a great week.

Cindy said...

Its nice to have a quiet week. I hope this week will be better for you.

I think my Mt. TBR will erupt any day now LOL

Laughing Stars said...

I love Cindy's comment about Mount TBR. *LOL* I have one of those here. A week with nothing in the mailbox, except bills and junk mail :-), must be a let down. But I agree with the others that a quiet week is sometimes good.

I really do need a week like that, but it's so hard to wish for. I hope you find some books in your mailbox this week.

Mary said...

I call a "no book week" a gift. A "catch up week" : )

Blodeuedd said...

Aha, lol I was so not getting it at first, too long day, too much learnt in school.
But oh yes those weeks can be good, the books do have a tendency to build up

Jess said...

When nothing comes in, I seem to find myself adding a lot of books to my TBR pile.

May your next week be blessed with books!

Love your sense of humor with the goose egg! I like those slower weeks to keep some balance. I know that it does feel strange not to have anything new in the mailbox but use it as a time to catch up.

Renee said...

I get depressed when nothing comes in the mail...this week is already looking like it's going to be one of those weeks! Haha oh well I guess you're right, time to catch up on other things!!!!Great blog and I LOVE your puppy...ADORABLE!!!!

Any week a book doesn't somehow make it into my house is a week the kids are shocked and hubby's doing the happy dance that he still has a spot to stretch in. LOL

Toni said...

oh my What?? Goose Egg... I am sort of on that path.. due to my own selfish coveting... I wouldn't wish this upon anyone... chin up.. chin up... ;) Happy Monday.

I actually haven't read any new press releases this week. Haven't read the Shelf Awareness newsletter. I've got 10 books on the You Must Review This shelf, and three more coming soon. So I'm kinda hoping that I've got a Goose Egg next week!!

Marie said...

Bummer. Oh well, think of it as an opportunity to catch up :-)
