Monday Mail Out: A good week for books.

[The Medieval Woman postcard & stationery from Astrid]

I didn't receive a lot of letters in the mail last week, but I did get a lot of books.

Seven, in fact!

4 were from BookCrossing, 2 via BookMooch, and 1 a surprise from Astrid in Austria. Mount TBR just got a lot bigger...

In addition to the book, Astrid also sent me a selection of postcards and stationery, including bookmarks and notecards. My favourite of the lot, however, was the medieval woman writing a letter postcard (pictured above). I think it'll look nice in a frame on the wall, don't you? It wouldn't be the first postcard from Astrid that has ended up on permanent display in our house.

[This morning's outgoing mail]

Saturday was hot and then on Sunday it was blowing a gale, but that made it a good weekend for writing letters.

Today mail went out to Maaike in China, Jen in Queensland, and Ulrika in Sweden.

Written correspondence has been a hobby of mine for a long time, & Monday Mail Out is a weekly feature whereby I can share my love for the lost art of letter writing. I hope my experiences will encourage others to send out letters on Monday too, and have them rediscover the joy of sending and receiving mail. If you have a blog, feel free to join in.
