Mailbox Monday

9 Comments

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.

Happy Monday! It’s hard to believe that it is already Labor Day weekend and that my daughter already had her first week of virtual learning. It was a week of navigating technology, meeting new teachers, and learning some things that they didn’t really get to last year. She’s been a trooper but believe me there are days when we all just want to cry and be hugged.

Tell us about your new books by adding your Mailbox Monday post to the linky below:

Be sure to stop back later this week for Books That Caught Our Eye.

  1. Hi Serena,

    All of the children over here have been told that they must return to the classroom for the new term, although I believe that virtual teaching is being prepared as an option, should individual schools need to self isolate if there are small spikes or outbreaks.

    Many of them are only going to be in the classroom part time, so that social distancing can be maintained, however I know that my niece is worried that her youngster, who starts school for the first time this week, is being used as a guinea pig for some kind of ‘herd immunity’ experiment. I really feel for her!

    Have a good week – A little cry now and then never hurt anybody 🙂

    • That’s a tough choice…and I know I’ll have to make that when they get to that stage of schooling here. Right now our county/area is all virtual until end of first quarter in January.

  2. My son started his first day of college today (in the UK) and now I just feel old. But it will be so nice to hopefully have some kid of routine back. Wishing all the kids a safe and happy first week back in school, college etc.

  3. Mary, I can understand wanting kids back in class, but I want protocols in place for their safety. I know there is no easy answers here, but she’s the only one I have. I don’t want anything bad to happen to her. 🙂
