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.
Today’s IMM post actually has some books that came in the mail (shocker)! Plus I made 2 trips to Waldenbooks this week (the 2nd trip was to get something for Doug that I didn’t grab the first time).
In The Mail
A Bone to Pick by Charlaine Harris – my cousin Heather convinced me to sign up for paperbackswap.com recently and sent me a credit and this is what I decided to get first. I’ve already read the first book in the Aurora series.
With My Hands
These are all from Waldenbooks. Trip one:
I Drink for a Reason by David Cross (this is for Doug)
I’ll Mature When I’m Dead by Dave Barry
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty (read it and loved it but didn’t own it)
I almost cleaned them out of Jen Lancaster also: Bright Lights Big Ass, Such a Pretty Fat, My Fair Lazy, If You Were Here. All they had left after I was there were 2 copies of If You Were Here. I’ve read all except If You.
I also got Doug a big guitar magazine for $2
I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas by Lewis Black
In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks by Adam Carolla. This is for Doug.
Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen
At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. I love Dahl growing up (my favorite childhood book is Matilda) and I know I didn’t have a copy of this. So when I saw it for $2 I decided to get it for our phantom future child….ok so maybe it is just for me
I also bought 2 Borders reusable bags for 80 cents each. My reusable bag obsession is almost as bad as my book obsession.
