Estelle: In My Mailbox (2/5/12)

Good evening everyone! I hope all of you have your eyes glued to the TV as the Super Bowl plays. No? Don’t worry. Me neither. I plan on being productive tonight… hopefully. So far my husband has managed not to scream… that much. (He’s a Giants fan.) Anyway, no more football talk. Instead, I made […]

Estelle - Mandee, thanks so much again for sending along Raw Blue! I can’t wait to get started on it! And yes, Magan has amazing taste. You should see the other stuff she picked out for me. It was the sweetest gift! Thanks again for stopping in!

Estelle - Jana, thanks for the confidence boost. I’m always totally nervous before doing these, and just about always having a beer along with my recording. (I just hide it!) My birthday weekend was very nice, even if it did fall on the dreaded football event of the year. Boo. At least my husband’s team won. That’s a good thing. 🙂

VeganYANerds - Happy Birthday, Estelle! I love the hot pink earrings that Magan sent you, they are gorgeous!

I’m so glad you’re happy with Raw Blue, I look forward to hearing what you girls think 🙂

And like you, I really want to start going to more book tours/author events, they sound fun!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Yay! (I feel like I always start my comments to you with a “yay!” Haha.) Happy birthday, Estelle! I hope you’ve had a nice day, even though it’s Superbowl Sunday. 🙂

What a fun week of books for you! I think I need to learn to embrace the library more. I know I’d be more daring in my book choices if I didn’t have to pay for them!

I’m jealous you have the opportunity to go to such awesome book events! I wish we had more here in Utah.

As always, it’s wonderful to see your face! You’re pretty adorable, and it’s so fun to watch your charismatic vlogs!

Justin @ Justin's Book Blog - You got some really great books this week. The Queen of Kentucky is really cute, hope you enjoy it. 😀 Along with all the other great books you got this week.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Estelle here! So excited to take part in my first Top Ten Tuesday started by the fabulous The Broke and the Bookish. Gotta say I couldn’t help crack a smile when I saw that today’s topic was about the very sad books on my bookshelf/Nook library that I keep passing by for […]

Hemborgwife - When we moved I rid myself of all unread books since shipping was so expensive but I am regretting it now since the library has just a small selection of books in English.

On another note I had book name plates as a kid too and I am actually thinking of getting some more since I bought an old cookbook and love the name of the original owner from 1947 being in it!

Jamie - OMG GO READ LITTLE WOMEN!!!!!! AHHHH!! lol. I fell in love as a child and read it again as an adult and still the same fondness for it. The Help was on my list too! I really do want to read it soon because everyone also raves about the movie!

Kell Smurthwaite - Little Women is lovely but very sad.
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. 🙂
