In My Mailbox–August 21, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is an opportunity to share any books I have received this week in my mailbox, on my nook, or with my own hands.

This is my first IMM post though I’ve read a ton of them on other blogs. I feel like I have some good books to share so I thought I’d give it a try.

With My Hands:

These are the books I got yesterday from Waldenbooks’ going out of business sale (we don’t have a Borders).

IT by Stephen King – my online book club is reading this for our Halloween book

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares – I used to own this but lost it at some point

Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares – haven’t read this one yet

Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris – this is part of the Sookie Stackhouse series. I’ve read this but I borrowed it at the time so I’m trying to fill in the series

Familyhood by Paul Reiser – I loved his other two books so I was really excited to see this.

And I didn’t get these yesterday like the ones above but these are other recent purchases from Waldenbooks:

Club Dead by Charlaine Harris – another book to fill in the Sookie series

Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris – this is the newest Sookie book and I actually haven’t read it yet. I’m re-reading the series right now to brush up on what all has happened before I start this one

Awakening and Struggle – Vampire Diaries # 1 and 2 by L.J. Smith – I haven’t read these but have heard a lot of good things about them so since the book was already on sale and then on clearance and ended up being $2.99 I had to get it

How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents by Julia Alvarez – I’ve only heard a little about this book but I’ve heard that it is good, so this is another one that I picked up because it was such a good price.

We’re planning to take a trip up to Chicago next spring so I also picked up two travel books: Access Chicago and Not For Tourists Chicago.

On My Nook:

The Dave Grohl Story by Jeff Apter. I’ve been on a Foo Fighters kick since watching them via Livestream from Lollapalooza so when I saw that this was available for the nook I jumped on it. I don’t know a whole lot about Dave Grohl outside all his bands so I’m finding this pretty interesting.


I put all the books away before I decided to do this post, so I promise next time there will be pictures!


  1. I'm curious to hear what you think of the latest Sookie book.

  2. I'm curious too! lol. I've heard good and bad. I just started my re-read of Dead and Gone today so I should be to the new book within a week I would think.

  3. ooooh I wanna borrow the Dave Grohl book :)
