Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Mailbox Monday!

This week's featured mailbox is an actual underwater mailbox. It is located off the coast of Susami, Wakayama in Japan, about 33 feet below sea level. This is an actual official mail collection point! Each day the contents are collected from the box, which apparently contains up to 200 pieces of mail a day! Here are two sites that have reported on it: Pink Tentacle and Gizmo Watch. Be sure to check back next week to see another fun new mailbox on this post!

Now, on to the books! I had a crazy fab week and received a personal record total of 8 books and 3 audiobooks in the mail. So nice.

  4. You had quite a haul last week. I'm not familiar with most of the books, but I did enjoy The Girl Who Stopped Swimming and Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven.

  5. Wow, you got a lot of books this week! I love your mailbox pic. Happy reading!

  6. What a load! I am happy for you- I haven't heard of many of these either,but I know a lot of Joyce Meyer fans.

    The underwater mailbox is an interesting concept, but I hate soggy mail.

  9. I'm reading The Abortionist's daughter ATM and enjoying it. Enjoy your new books, Rebecca :)

  10. I saw your d on Twiiter. Glad you got it okay. Enjoy!

    I loved Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven.

  11. I just love that underwater mailbox! How weird! I guess you have to pack the stuff really good and watertight. Why do people do stuff like this?

    And I literally just reviewed "The Girl Who Stopped Swimming" today!! It was great! I loved it!

    And I'm reading "The Lost City of Z" right now ... and then it will be on its way to you!

  12. Great mail box!! I love that underwater information...amazing!!
    Prayers for Sale was fantastic. Enjoy your loot!!

  13. I got Coffee with the Buddha from... you! :) Thank you! I'm hoping I'll be able to start it next week; it looks like it's going to be a nice, concise read.

  14. That whole Maximum Ride series I have been meaning to read. One day :)

    Good selection of books.

    There is also an underwater mail box in the south pacific I believe Fiji.

  15. Lots of good stuff. Enjoy!

  16. I've never heard of an underwater mailbox. Interesting. Looks like you got some great titles. Hope you enjoy them.
