In My Mailbox (30)--The Big Three-Oh


Hmm, I can't believe I've been IMMing for 30 weeks. Crazy how time flies when well....time is flying. I've been so busy lately I am completely falling behind on my reading. I think I just need to find that balance between classes, new job, reading, and that oh-so-important new season of Supernatural (what are they doing to my boys?!)

Anyway, first things first, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren.

I'm going to be lazy this week, because I have a family reunion tomorrow and I want to read more of Karma for Beginners, which I am LOVING!! So, no pics or descriptions, just the basics today.

For Review:

Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines---I'm very excited for this one and it's a shiny new finished copy. Adding it the the ever-growing TBR pile.

Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue by Hugh Howey--Thanks to Hugh for sending this one my way. It looks great!

Out of the Nursery by Elizabeth Gauthier--This one is a picture book which I reviewed in my last post.

Purchased:

Went a little crazy at Borders and Half-Price Books:

Simon Bloom: The Gravity Keeper by Michael Reisman
Simon Bloom: The Octopus Effect by Michael Reisman
Official Book Club Selection by Kathy Griffin
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
The Amanda Project: invisible i by Stella Lennon (Melissa Kantor)
Sphinx's Princess by Esther Friesner


I'm trying to curb my buying for the next week or so, because Borders has an Educator Appreciation Week coming up where I can save 30% on all my purchases. Yay!! So, these may be the only books for a couple weeks. Luckily, I have about a million books already on my shelves that I need to read.

Oh well, it's a sickness. I guess there are worse things than books and Winchester brothers to be addicted to.
