My Mailbox is overflowing!

I have had a book buying binge week!  I won some books on blogs, my friend Kathy gave me a book, I ordered books from the Scholastic book orders, amazon, and I shopped the book fair at the school!  Wow - toooooooo many books - my TBR just exploded!  My son just started reading the Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan and we only had the first two books - so....off to Amazon.com and get the last 10 in that series.  They arrived yesterday!  I will list the books and where they came from - I am skipping the pics this week.  My boyfriend sometimes reads my blog and there is no sense in adding fuel to the fire by adding a visual!!!

Won on blogs:  Thanks so much to the bloggers who have hosted the contests/giveaways and for the great books that I have received!!!

Wow, you got so many great books this week!! Hush, Hush and Living Dead Girl are both fantastic reads, so I hope you enjoy them as well. Happy reading. :)

Great books, Bev! My Middle Grade Marathon is working out. I have read 4 of the 5 from that middle grade pack we both won. I just have Nightmare at the Book Fair to go. They have all been good so far.

I may have to look around the book fair again. You found some things that I didn't see.

My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

WoW! Amazing mailbox. :)

I love the book fair. My son is in his last year of middle school and I look forward to the book fair more than he does. :) His school has 2 a year and the one in the Spring is the half price fair. I really load up then.

Sadly, the high school does not have a book fair - but the ladies at the middle school say I'm always welcome. LOL

Enjoy your books!
