In My Mailbox #12


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.

Click on the pictures for links to their goodreads pages.

Purchased





It was a very good week for purchasing books. Subterranean Press, who prints Kelley Armstrong's novellas, released her new one, "Hidden", in ebook format for only $5.99 and to celebrate, they also lowered the ebook price of "Counterfeit Magic" and "Angelic" to only 99 cents. I already own the latter two in print but couldn't pass up the opportunity to get them for my Kindle at such a bargain price. I initially put "Hidden" on my Kindle wish list (I pre-ordered the print copy, it should be arriving soon) but then changed my mind and bought it too. Hey, it's Kelley. 'Nuff said. :P





WOO HOO!!! After a delay of several months, the next book in JA Campbell's Into The West YA series is finally out! I  have been waiting and waiting and waiting....I really, REALLY enjoy this series. Romance, action, the Old West and time travel plus very good writing. And Julie is a really, really nice person to boot.


Review



I got one review book, the third book in a series but I think it might be doable even though I haven't read the first two.

I also downloaded some Kindle freebies and got one book from the library. That one was for my classroom but after my co-teachers and I looked it over, we decided it didn't meet our needs and I returned it.

What did you get this week?

  2. I still haven't taken to e-books, I'm glad to note that you seem to be doing this with relative ease - I suppose it's really a matter of being used to it. All the book covers you have here look mighty interesting - and romance filled to boot! :) Have fun with them.

    Here's my IMM for the week:

  3. Myra, I was initially resistant to ebooks but in the past year or so, I have come to love them. There are some authors, such as Kelley, that I still want in print but ebooks do have many advantages.

    The Carol Berg book is inprint
