I love getting stuff in the mail, and here recently, it seems like I've been getting a lot (sorry, credit card for the overuse). Here are three books I've gotten:
Train Like a Mother, from the author's of Run Like a Mother Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea. I've already read the whole book. I loved looking through the reader-submitted quotes and comments, especially when I could find myself and my virtual running buddy Chandra several times. It got me motivated to start a training plan, even if I don't get to run the race I have planned. And now that I've decided to do another half, it's got me thinking how I can train for this one.
Second, these. I don't even know how I found out about it, but Blog2Print will print your blogs into a softbound or hard cover book. You can do a lot of editing to it, including deleting posts you don't want to include or changing some settings. I had a coupon code, so I printed my 2010 and 2011 blogs. I am so pleased with the books. It's really cool to have it all in one place.
Third, I finished, ordered and received my first digital scrapbook! Once again, I had a coupon code for Shutterfly, so I made sure to finish my 2011 12x12 book. Every month, I take 12 pictures on the 12th of the month. These capture my life and the everday going-ons. I love it! I'm so glad I switched to digital. This is the first 12x12 album I've finished the the three years of taking these pictures.
