In My Mailbox: Belated Birthday Edition

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. This meme is about books that you received or bought during the week.

When I got home from work today, I saw a postcard and a mysterious package waiting for me:

The postcard is from the Netherlands and features Miffy, a popular children’s book character over there. So cute that it’s a card based on a book. And the sender also used a Postcrossing stamp:

When I opened the package, I found belated birthday gifts from my good friend Celina:

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Two hardcovers from my wishlist. Maraming salamat, Celina! Looking forward to reading these. πŸ™‚ What about you, got any books or postcards this week?

  1. Wow, you participate in Postcrossings too? Cool πŸ˜€ I just sent my first five postcards recently, and I’m really excited! You’ve got some really cool stuff there, and the books look gorgeous!

    • Celina! Thank you again for the books. Such a coincidence that I featured Guernsey in my most recent Want Books post and you were already planning on sending it. πŸ˜€

    • Oooh South Africa! I always get excited when I get a new-to-me country (like when I first got assigned to send a postcard to Belarus). πŸ™‚ There must be a lot of Postcrossers in the Netherlands for them to come up with a custom stamp like that. Wish we had something similar here.

    • LOL I get it, so hard to type that lengthy title! I just end up calling it Guernsey. I have a feeling I’ll like it because it’s recommended by EWein. πŸ˜› I know, love the postcard especially when I understood what it represented.

  2. I just received four postcrossing-postcards from Norway, Belarus, Russia and the Czech Republic. I love it! πŸ™‚ I haven’t received any books this week, but I’m waiting for some.

    • I’ve only gotten seven postcards all in all but I’m hoping to get more! I have no idea if some of the ones that I’ve sent got lost in transit or it’s just taking a while for them to arrive. It makes me happy when I receive both books and postcards in one day. πŸ™‚

      • I also received only 13 postcards in total until now. The postcard from Belarus travelled for 30 days. So keep your hopes up that more will arrive. πŸ™‚

    • Heidi, I know! Had to laugh when I opened the package and saw the book. Celina knows me well. πŸ™‚ Hope I enjoy reading Unearthly as much as all of you did.

    • Aww Holly, I would never think that! You’ll always be an awesome blogging buddy in my eyes. πŸ˜€ I need to catch up with the blogosphere – my Google Reader currently has 254 unread items.
