I received three things in the mail this week and none of them were actual books - however I still have the need to share as you may be interested.
First I received my long awaited copy of the Blu-ray Red Riding Hood from APB Media. I had won this in a giveaway from one of the movie's promoters because I had happened to review it on this site and posted links to their website. I was so very excited for this because I thought the movie was beautiful - despite the poor critical reviews it received. One of my new favorites. I absolutely watched it the day it arrived.
Then I received a copy of the audiobook for Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Riley. I'm not a huge O'Riley fan, but I was interested in how this book would be. Obviously I'm going to read another book about Lincoln for my books about the Presidents goal, but I was intrigued. I received this from the publisher, Macmillan, as part of the Audiobook Jukebox Solid Gold Reviewed Program.
Finally, I received an awesome board game - called 7 Wonders, which we ordered from Amazon. Its a sort of board/sort of card game about building the 7 Wonders of the World. It is pretty easy to learn, I learned in one sitting and WON! I will probably post a review of it on here at some point, but if you are interested in checking out the game yourself, I recommend going to their website. The feel is similar to a Civilization game that you would play on the computer, however in board game form.
Did anything awesome arrive in your mailbox?
