In My Mailbox - My First!

"In My Mailbox" was started by The Story Siren. See her blog for more details.

Since I like doing Library Loot as well In My Mailbox will only contain things I actually get in the mail or buy in the store.

Bought Books:
A local bookstore was going out of business and the last day was Fridays. I got some great deals and a big stack of things to read.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.
I never saw the movie and now I am excited to read the book before it comes out on DVD.
Daniel X by James Patterson
You will quickly learn that I am obsessed with James Patterson and convinced that he is super human because he writes so many books a year.
Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee West
Honestly I picked this up because the cover was gorgeous. But it sounds like a good book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Well, because I am the last person on the planet to read it.
Stuff White People Like by Christian Lander
Because his blog is absolutely hilarious.

The very next day there was a town sale at the local library where I picked up these goodies:

Roswell High by Melinda Metz
I was obsessed with this TV show and thought it would be fun to read this little (176 pgs) book.
Dumping Billy by Olivia Goldsmith
Flirting with Forty by Jane Porter
The Ex Wife's Survival Guide by Derby Holt
Knight: My Story by Bob Knight
The only thing I love more than books is sports and I have always wanted to read his bio.
Beach Road by James Patterson
7th Heaven by James Patterson
Like I said, he is my favorite.

And finally two that actually came in the mailbox from bookmooch

The Entitled by Frank Deford
Surf Girl School by Cathy Yardley

Well that is all, have a lot to look forward to!

Wow, so many good books! The Hunger Games is AMAZING! I'm glad there's someone else who likes James Patterson.. do you like the Maximum Ride series? They're my favourite. Daniel X was good too. And Roswell... so good!
