Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Malibox Monday's home for the month of May! 

For those of you not familiar with it,
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
It was started by Marcia of the Printed Page (now A Girl and Her Books) and is now being hosted monthly by different bloggers. Go here to find the schedule. But first, be sure to leave a link to your MM post below using the handy-dandy Mister Linky at the bottom of this post. 
Luckily for me, and my TBR pile, the only books that came into my house this week were for the little girl. For those of you who don't know, last year was my final year teaching, having decided to stay home with Emma. I taught PreK for 9 years and had accumulated a lot of points from the Scholastic Book Clubs. So, before they could disappear, I needed to use them. This time it is the little girl's TBR pile that is getting bigger. Two bookshelves worth. :)
