In My Mailbox #3 ~ The “I Got Freebies” Edition

Posted December 17, 2011 in Meme / 6 Comments

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme held over at The Story Siren.  It’s a great way to let everyone know about the books that have come into your home the past week.  Whether you bought, borrowed, or received them for review, you share your loot and then hook up over at the The Story Siren. It’s an awesome way to meet fellow bloggers and find new books to read!!
This has been a pretty slow week for buying books because, well, it’s Christmas and I’m supposed to be buying goodies for everyone else.  BUT, I did do a happy dance outside by the mailbox when my prize came in from All Things Urban Fantasy.  They are absolutely one of my favorite blogs to read regularly, even if I never won anything from them (no, really, they are!)  Thank you, ATUF!!!
I almost hate to spill this “secret” but Kim Harrison (author of The Hollows and Madison Avery series) sometimes does this “Manic Monday” thing-y on her blog where she gives away awesome swag.  I was able to score a free poster of the cover of the Hollows Insider world book, signed!!  
It is absolutely beautiful, glow-in-the-dark just like the book and is really a good size; the picture just doesn’t do it justice.  She is one of those authors who is extra-ordinarily good to her fans.  I can’t wait until February to see her again in person at her book signing in Ann Arbor, MI for A Perfect Blood. 

It’s almost Christmas and that means it’s almost time for everyone to get beaucoup amounts of books as gifts and presents to themselves.  I can’t wait to see what everyone is getting in these next few weeks!!  What books found a new home at your house this past week??? 


About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.
