In My Mailbox #40

In My Mailbox is a great meme from The Story Siren.  If you'd like to take part, visit The Story Siren's IMM page for further details.

First up this week I bought a book for my Kindle.  It's not got a lot of ratings on Goodreads, but the ratings it does have are all good so I decided to give it a go:

Next I won a book from Elle at The Book Memoirs.  Thank you Elle!  The book I chose as my prize sounds so awesome that I decided to give a copy of this book away myself in this week's Book Blogger Bingo.  The game is open until next Friday so hop on over and play to win!

HEAVENLY by Jennifer Laurens

The last book I received this week was an unexpected one from Bloomsbury, but it sounds awesome!

DECEPTION by Lee Nichols

But that wasn't all I received this week.  A totally awesome package turned up on my doorstep on Wednesday - a custom cover for my Kindle!

Just look at this little beauty!  It's got my blog logo and name on it!  

Heather from Bewitched Bookworms HAND MADE this to my specifications as I wanted a cover to go over the leather cover on my Kindle to keep all the debris from my handbag from getting onto my beloved ereader.

Heather also makes custom covers for ipads, all ereaders,  as well as customised embroidered lunch totes and handbags.

Here's a better picture of the embroidered logo and my name.  My photo just does not do this justice.  I caught the light a bit so the colours aren't exact and I can tell you that it looks so much prettier in real life.

Pictures are clickable for a bigger view.

You know, I might have to offer one of these as a Book Blogger Bingo prize sometime.  Would you like that?

If you'd like your very own ereader cover with your blog logo or any other custom design, go and visit Heather over at ACM Custom Designs.  She's very helpful and her work is amazing!

That Kindle cover is awesome! I love embroidered things.

I liked Deception a lot. Emma is one of my favorite MCs and I love the handsome rake (even though, no, he's not a love interest) :)
