In My Mailbox #8

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren. It's a way to share and highlight all the books we receive, even if we don't review them. l share books that I buy, that I receive for review, get from the library, borrow from a friend, etc.


I bought the copyediting book from The Book Depository to help me with my work. The two Jane True books I had originally read from the library and NetGalley, respectively. Now, thanks to I own them. I love that series so very, very much. It's smart, funny, sexy, has a dark edge and uses beings from various mythologies not usually found in urban fantasy.


Not my usual fare, but I like dragons and I can review any story in the book, or the whole book, my choice. Anthologies can be a bear, so I like that the publisher is so flexible.


I'm a Nora Roberts fan and I've been on the wait list at the library for this book for months, then they joined the Kindle Library Lending program and it was listed so I requested it and now I have my first library kindle book. :)

Amazon Freebies

It's been a while since I showcased any of the titles I've downloaded. I've only got a few this time around so I thought I'd include them. The cookie one I hope to use this Christmas; my work always does a cookie swap so this book seemed perfect. The autism book is for my classroom work; autism is more common these days and it's rare I don't have at least student who is somewhere on the autism spectrum. The organization book, well, organization is not one of my better skills so I thought I'd give this book a try.
What did you get this week?


  1. I need to get a new library card since they do the kindle loaning thing now. Haven't used our library in over 10 years.

  2. I like the fact that because the books are digital, I can't lose them or forget to return them. However I also can't renew them. I have request them again if I don't get them read in time.

  3. Tempest Rising looks wonderful!
    Awesome haul!
    MY IMM:
    Hope you're having an excellent weekend!

  5. Some very interesting books. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Returning the favor.

  6. Grace, Book Faerie, Wendy, thanks for stopping by. :)

  7. Library Kindle books are incredibly awesome! I'm a little uncomfy with Amazon knowing what books I'm checking out, but that's another issue entirely.

    My IMM is over here if you'd like to stop by. Happy Reading!

  8. Nice books!I have Tempest Rising, but haven't read it yet. I hope you enjoy all of them.

  10. I probably need the copyediting for dummies books. I just graduated from J-school and need to keep smart.

  11. LOL, it may not keep you smart but it will help you mark up your work or your co-workers so you look smart.

    I have a part-time job copy editing and proof reading so it's handy for me.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let;s talk!
