It's a late In My Mailbox! August 18, 2010


I realize that it is not Monday, but I wanted to post an In My Mailbox because I have been getting some of the greatest books - - from all kinds of places!!!


I recently had company (my boyfriend's family) and his mother was reading The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks.  When she finished it she gave it to me.  I thought that was sweet.  I have not read this one and so I have added it to my TBR Mountain.

Before the in-laws, so-to-speak, my family was here for my gramma's funeral.  While I was waiting for my sister's flight I wandered into the airport news shop and just had to buy a book.  Does that happen to you?  Anyway - I bought Catherine Coulter's Knock Out.  Of course they called the arrival of the flight and I didn't even open the book.  Too busy with everything that was going on to read it, it too has been added to my TBR mountain.


While I was spending time with my family, my dad mentioned that he had a number of books that he had finished, he doesn't have the same "keep all your books issue" that I do and he asked me if I would like to add a few to my library.  Of course I said sure and so these four books have found their way onto my TBR mountain as well.  

I have been incredibly lucky with the giveaways too! These are the books that I have won recently and have arrived in my mail this week.  
I won: Other from Katelyn at The Bookshelf Sophisticate,
I am Number Four from June G at Writing is a Blessing,
Flash of the Firefly from Rebecca Wolfe,
Mind Games from Chasity at LLL808,
Eternal Ones from Kari at A Good Addiction, and
Infinite Days from Felicia at The Geeky Blogger.
Thanks so much for all the great books!  Be sure to click on the links here to go check out their blogs!

I also won The Holy Reaper from Roxanne at Fang-tastic Books and The Hunted 2060 from Karissa at Karissa's Book Blog, but I don't have pictures of them yet.  You can find a pic of Hunted 2060 on Amazon, but it isn't the cover I have and this one is so much better I wanted to wait and post the actual cover with my review later.  Thanks to both of these bloggers too - and remember to check them out as well!
