In My Mailbox (Christinabean) - August 16, 2010

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which bloggers post about the books they have received for the week. Books may be won, taken out from the library or bought from a store.

I asked Curlypow to trade IMM weeks with me. You see, my mailbox was full of cool stuff last week and I just had to share. First off, my week started off on a bad note. I waited for 1 1/2 hours at the doctor's office for a scheduled appointment only to have them tell me that they forgot about me. I re-scheduled calmly and left quickly before I said anything nasty. On the way home, I stopped by the post office and found a lovely surprise waiting.

About a month ago I won a Nancy Holder prize pack from Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers. IT CAME SIGNED FROM THE AUTHOR!! This totally turned my day around. Thank you Gina from Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers and Nancy Holder! You ROCK!!

Next up is a two chapter preview of Tell Me a Secret signed by Holly Cupala. She had a big Giveaway month and I commented on a post to win. Thanks Holly!

Another win that came in this week was Sea by Heidi R. Kling. I didn't know much about this book and I won it from The Well Read Wife. It sounds interesting and I can't wait to get started! She had a Twitter giveaway. Thank you!

Last by certainly no least, I placed an order with the Book Depository (it took two days to arrive!!) for my niece and nephew...while I was browsing their collection, I did find some interesting things that I just couldn't turn down...

As you may have noticed, Itty-Bitty Toys and Baby & Toddler Knits don't seem to jive with the rest of the YA fiction but sometimes Curlypow and I like to share a bit of the other non-fiction items we read, projects we're working on and fun things to try. Stay tuned for more under Musings by Knitwits... :D

What's in your mailbox this week? I hope you had as happy an IMM week as I did!


  1. Great job on remaining calm in that doctor's office....believe it or not, I have a family member that happened to as well...except they were actually taken back to one of the internal rooms! Crazy...
    So glad that the prize pack arrived safe, sound, and on just the day you needed a pick me up! Thanks for the shout out and big thanks to Nancy Holder for the prize. When you read them, would love to hear what you think! Oh, and by the way...she has a new book coming out next month that so REALLY good! (Just got the ARC and yeah, had to peek inside...hehe). Happy reading! ^_^

  2. Thanks so much for the comment! I'll keep my eyes out for the new book. P.s. I had my appt this morning and it took 15 minutes!! Ridiculous!
