Today feels like spring. I hope it sticks around and we can be done with the snow.
Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog. I only post my mailbox once a month, so here are the books that I received in March:
That’s What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting – purchased (review)

We did not get the huge snowstorm they predicted yesterday. We ended up with maybe three inches and the roads were all clear this morning. I’m happy but amber was sad; she was expecting the day off school today. The church service yesterday was pretty skimpy though, with everyone expecting a day full of snow. I play the organ and I have to say that I think I played horribly, partly because the sanctuary was so empty, the singing was lackluster and I could hear individuals talking during the prelude instead of just a general murmur. Oh well, I don’t think they’ll fire me.

So yesterday was the Super Bowl. I don’t care about the actual game, but we had a few people over and had some food. The hit, as far as Amber and David go, was the Rolo-stuffed Ritz crackers. I found them on Pinterest. Easy, quick and quite yummy.
But this post is really about the books I got in the last month, so here’s my list.
