Mailbox Monday/It's Monday...what are you reading? (another late edition)

Please note:  I apologize for the awful formatting of this post.  When I was inserting the art pics from the CD, it caused the whole thing to go wanky on me...ugh!

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is now on monthly blog tours.  This month is being hosted by Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit.

(Please click titles for book descriptions at Goodreads)

In the mail:

From monthly subscription to yourmusic.com

The new CD by Hole entitled Nobody's Daughter.  I realize that this is not a book, but I had to share it because of the artwork used on the cover and the CD insert.

Notice how the heads in both images are cropped off at the neck.  A symbolism of how both women were executed.  Clever!
Back Cover--Anne Boleyn
Cover--Marie Antoinette

Here is the image from the CD insert,
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey.


As I was purchasing school supplies for the boys at Walmart, I came across this journal with my number one favorite band, Aerosmith! I had to buy it, of course. =O)

The following books were purchased at the Goodwill half-price sale.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Great mailbox! I've looked at Q before but never got it, if you end up liking it I may have to get ahold of it.

    Sorry about last night but I lost track of time getting my house ready for my mom coming today. I should be there next week though.

  2. gads, i haven't listened to hole in a hundred years--since college in the 90s at least!

    as for a goodwill book sale--sign me up! we don't have a goodwill near my house by a town near my sister's house has one. i popped in last week and picked up 'south of broad' by pat conroy for 99 cents. yay.

    enjoy your music and books! :)

  3. I am glad I saw your post. It made me think that it must be about time for a new Kate Atkinson, so I went out to her website and found out that she has a new book out next week! I am now at the top of the library list so I should hopefully get it soon.

  4. Enjoy your books! By Fire By Water is on my list to be read too.

  5. Thanks all for visiting!

    Ryan--who knows when I'll get around to reading Q!

    Marg--I'm glad my mailbox was a reminder for you. =O)
