Mailbox Monday,
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
and WWW Wednesdays

I hope you are enjoying this special week-end. Finally it’s warming up around Chicago, good to be able to just read in T-shirt on the porch!
It is so colder than usual that cicadas are at least a month late, compared to my own record of previous years. It really feels so weird not to hear them yet, nor crickets by night.
Anyway, I had a great book week, so here we go:

HOW WAS YOUR WEEK?

June wins

JUNE WINS!

One of the many thrills of being part of the book blogging community, is that you can offer and also win books. But you can also win all kinds of fascinating things, book related or not.
I mentioned recently having won graphics for my virtual book tour business, France Book Tours.

Today, I’d like to present

DorkEMom

I was the winner at Roof Beam Reader a few weeks ago, and won a few things from this Chicagoland artist.
Shannon has all kinds of interesting things to offer, from crafts she makes at home on a full-time basis!
As each year our Christmas tree is uniquer in the sense that it only contains bird ornaments, of course I chose tiles with birds on them, such as this cute little chickadee:

bird tile

I highly recommend you click on the logo and see what she has to offer. She keeps adding new things. Enjoy your visit!
