In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren with the purpose of helping bloggers get to know each other and to highlight books!
This was was slow in the receiving book department, but not in the totally fun and awesome book related goodies department!
Obviously, the world knows that The Hunger Games movie comes out this coming Friday, March 23 at 12:01 a.m.!!! *squeals with anticipation*
My husband and I have our tickets to the midnight showing and this will be the first midnight showing we’ve ever gone to before! I’m super excited and can’t stop watching the trailers.
Well, on Thursday the 22nd, I get to host a Hunger Games party in my school’s Media Center! We have about 65 students attending and are going to be doing some fun activities. But with that I’ve also had to get a hold of awesome raffle/giveaway prizes for the students. So, of course I’ve hit up Barnes and Noble and Hot Topic to purchase some fun Hunger Games paraphernalia.
I also contacted Lionsgate Films and asked for some free movie promotional materials to give to my students, and a few days later got a response saying they’d send some posters. I expected like maybe two or three posters, so imagine my surprise when I opened the box and found 10 movie posters, a pack of 50 Hunger Games lanyards, and 50 3-D Katniss bookmarks!! So, a humongous thank you (THANK YOU!!) to Lionsgate Films for sending these to my students! With all this swag everyone will leave the party with at least one cool Hunger Games item!
Earlier I mentioned that I went shopping for some cool Hunger Games merchandise. I got a cool Peeta and Katniss mug and some bookmarks, a mockingjay sweat band bracelet, a Gale key chain and a journal . I’ll also be getting two movie tickets for one lucky student. But in the mix of my Hunger Games shopping extravaganza, I had to treat myself to a mockingjay t-shirt. So I did.
So, no books this week, which is okay because I have so much I already want to read sitting on my To Read Shelf.
What was in your mailbox this week? I look forward to reading about what fun goodies everyone else received!
