Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
I was watching the news and suddenly thought “Oh, it’s Sunday night already!” I was considering the events going on this week and wanted to share a few bookish items:
No Name-Calling Week January 16-20, 2017 – This event was inspired by the book: The Misfits by James Howe. (Sad we need a special week to remind us that name-calling is unkind.)
January 18 Thesaurus Day celebrates the birthday of the author of Roget’s Thesaurus, Peter Roget. (I love that resource!)
January 18 is also Winnie the Pooh Day to celebrate the birthday of Winnie’s author A.A. Milne. A day to share teddy bears. 🙂
Tell us about your new books by adding your Mailbox Monday post to the linky below:
Be sure to stop back here on Wednesday for Books That Caught Our Eye.
I love reading all the bookish related items in the news, much more interesting than the depressing reality that politicians heap on us all!!
Have a great week 🙂
Hi Yvonne- Glad you like these.I thought we could use something lighter and, of course, bookish. 🙂
Thanks for the fun info about the Thesaurus, No Name Calling, and Winnie The Pooh. I am going to send the No Name Calling one to my fellow teachers who are still teaching. 🙂
These weeks do fly by.
Have a wonderful week this week.
My Mailbox Monday
Hi Elizabeth – It is fun to discover such tidbits and pass them along. Definitely good for teachers. Thanks for commenting.

I like your mailbox load. 🙂 I felt so badly about Carrie Fisher. I will look forward to reading your review of “The Princess Diarist.” I felt closer to Debbie Reynolds. That death really was painful. Enjoy your books.
