In My Mailbox (4)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to share the awesome books we get each week.


I'm still not buying books yet (as much as I love reading, I love eating and having a place to live a little bit more, so all my money is going to those things right now), but last week I came across a Borders gift card I had received the Christmas before last (2009!) I thought I had already used it but when I called to check the balance, there was $40 on there! Plus I'd gotten a $10 one this Christmas, and with Borders going out of business soon, I decided it was a great time to use these gift cards. So on Monday morning (a day off due to the President's Day holiday) I did the unthinkable...I woke up early! Around 9, so I could be at Borders right when they opened. These are the books I got:

Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben
Afterburn by Zane (which I realized when I got home, was already on my bookshelf, unread, grrrr...)
Stealing Candy by Alison Hobbs
Aftermath by Tracy Brown
The Devil is a Lie by Reshonda Tate Billingsley

Two freebies from B&N were downloaded onto Strawberry this week:

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
Medical Error by Richard L. Mabry

I also received a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card from my coworker for my birthday

My library books were due back this week. I haven't read any of them with the exception of Diamond Playgirls, so I renewed all of them and took Diamond Playgirls back. While I was there, I picked these up:

Torn Between Two Lovers by Carl Weber
The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger
Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich
Big Girls Don't Cry by Carl Weber

What was in your mailbox this week?

  2. Ooh, you got lots of good books this week! That was real luck finding that Borders gift card. Is Strawberry your Kindle? If so, cute name! :)
