67 posts | 2 read
Centered on a real landmark on the coast of North Carolina, The Mailbox blends intriguing folklore and true faith with raw contemporary issues that affect every woman. When Lindsey Adams first visits the Kindred Spirit mailbox at Sunset Beach, she has no idea that twenty years later she will still be visiting the mailboxstill pouring out her heart in letters that summarize the best and worst parts of her life. Returning to Sunset for her first vacation since her husband left her, Lindsey struggles to put her sorrow into words. Memories surface of her first love, Campbelland the rejection that followed. When Campbell reappears in her life, Lindsey must decide whether to trust in love again or guard herself from greater pain. The Mailbox is a rich novel about loss, hope, and the beauty of second chances.

It has been a crazy work week (with a mountain of marking still to come) so it was amazing to come home to some #LitsyLove in the mailbox. Completely made my day! (And I 100% agree that dogs are people too...at least mine thinks he is)

@AmyG @Crazeedi @BookNAround - I'm waiting on some stationary to arrive so I can actually start responding to people, but 🤞 it doesn't take too long.

Three swap boxes sent today: #VeryAustenHoliday box @Chrissyreadit @Sprainedbrain
#Bestof2020 @Candority
#jolabokaflodswap @MaleficentBook
They should arrive by Monday.

I‘m waiting for some items for the other 3 swaps. They should be out by next week.

We are under new restrictions😱from 12/7 to 01/07. Curfew time: 9:00pm/5:00am. Lockdown on Sundays except essentials stores. Beaches are closed again😬no sales of alcohol beverages S/S😲

Chrissyreadit Wow!!! Has Covid exploded by you?I wish everyone would go on lockdown at the same time so it would be under control. 14mo
Gissy The Governor said that if the numbers continue increasing, there will be a total lockdown. But apparently the problem is related with family reunions during the holidays. There are family members with COVID. Will see. In our case, we haven‘t have any family reunion since the quarantine. Everyone do their celebrations within their nuclear families. @Chrissyreadit 14mo
candority Thank you for posting! I hope everything with the new restrictions goes well! 14mo

Gissy I sent my boxes 2 weeks ago but I don‘t if they received them because my matches have not posted anything. But I know that the box related with Austen which was sent the same day, was received and opened before opening date. @candority @MaleficentBookDragon 13mo
candority @Gissy I will follow up with your #Bestof2020Swap match via email to see if they have received it! 13mo

So my books are wrecked ugh I've never ordered from book outlet before it took 4 weeks to arrive and arrived damaged. 😡🤬😱😭

Melissa_J That sucks. I‘d say the problem is on the mail system, not Book Outlet. Book Outlet is a Canadian company and their distribution Centre is here - our national mail carrier was on strike until recently and there has been a huge backlog in packages. Yours likely got caught up in it. As for the damage, I‘ve ordered tons from Book Outlet and never once has a package been damaged. 3y
Avanders 😖 super frustrating! (Though i agree w everything @Melissa_J said ☺️) 3y
Lovesbooks87 Oh no! I am so sorry this happened to you. I am waiting for an order from Book Outlet now. I am thinking it was whoever shipped it that ruined it. I would try to get into contact with them. Maybe they can do something about it! 3y

sprainedbrain Oh no. 😢 3y
Melissa_J Does USPS have a contact number or email for lost or damaged packages? If so, I‘d try that first. Maybe also let Book Outlet know. They might do something about it. 3y
