In My Mailbox Monday

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

It's Monday. The weekend flew by so quickly. But I had a nice smooth weekend. My youngest and I spent some time at the library. She found some great books, and I bought some great books from the library store. Win-win.

So here's what I have today:

Bought from in Paperback

Sisters and Lovers by Connie Briscoe

For Kindle on iPad.

Bought from Library:

What books have you recently received? 
And where did you get them?


Also, don't forget to enter the Read Banned Books Week Giveaway and Hop. I am giving away six (6) gifts for six (6) different winners. And the contest is open internationally as well. Click on the photo below for more info on how to enter my giveaway or just scroll down to the previous post.



  1. I bought Neuromancer by William Gibson and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick at the Univ. of Arkansas Little Rock bookstore.

    They were both on a list of top SciFi books of all time and I hadn't read either one.

  2. I've ordered Eunoia by Christian Bok & also a Kindle. I've Cormac McCarthy's The Road on my Shelf & read Hemingway a few years ago. Also Hank's books by Gibson is a Cyberpunk classic & good read & if he enjoys it try The Difference Engine by Gibson & Bruce Sterling.

  3. I didn't bought a few books old Julie Garwood's and Brenda Joyce books from our used bookstore. I also got Sohpie's Choice by Georgette Heyer for my Nook for 1.99! YAY!

    I remember reading How Stella Got Her Groove Back a long time ago! I really liked it because the style was a little different.

  4. I'm a bit jealous that you got these great books from the library. Our library doesn't do sales anymore, and it's such a pity.

  5. I read A Day Late & A Dollar Short several years ago and quite enjoyed it. I loved the story being told from different points of view.

  6. I hope you enjoy your books. Toni Morrison was at the National Book Festival in DC this year, but I missed her. I really enjoyed The Road, but beware there are no quotation marks and no names (that I can recall)

  7. I see everyone got some good books this week as well. I will have to look into those books Hank and Parrish Lantern. I have really wanted to read some sci-fi lately, but didn't see any great recommendations.

    Jade, I going to get Sophie's Choice on Nook as soon as I'm done. I had the book awhile back and never read it, but now can't find it. :-( The movie was heartbreaking, so I sorta put it off, but now that's it's $1.99 I can't beat that.

    @ Leeswammes, I love our library bookstore. If it wasn't for that store, I wouldn't have hardly any books. It's addictive when everything is so cheap.

    @Debbie, I loved it too. This is my third copy on my bookshelf. I hate to see a good book just sitting on the shelf, so I buy them and just give them away or let them sit next to their siblings on my shelf, til I find them a home in a giveaway or friends house. :-)

    @Serena, I would loved, loved, loved to have seen Toni Morrison. She is on my top 3 list of people I must see. Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou and Oprah. I can't imagine what I would've said. Just thinking about it makes me excited.

    Thanks for stopping by everyone. Til we meet again....hopefully that's tomorrow. :-D

  8. Those are some fabulous books! I've always been meaning to read The Road and A Mercy! I hope you enjoy your reads!

  9. Dob't read The Road if you're in a down mood. It is a pretty depressing book.

  10. Great books :)

    Have a great week,

    Rachel @ Fictional Fantasy
