In My Mailbox (#11)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren. It's a chance for book bloggers to show off the books they acquired over the week.

From NetGalley for review:


Giveaway wins (from Colleen @ Les Livre's Spreading the Gospel of Austen Giveaway):

I've actually not heard of Persuasion before (oops!). I'm interested to read Pride and Prejudice first though, since the Kiera Knightly movie version was so well made.

I'm on a book buying hiatus until Wednesday, when I'm going to a Scholastic warehouse book sale! That will be dangerous...for my wallet, at least.

So, what did you get? It's getting so close to Christmas, and I don't know about you, but it's getting so hard for me not to pick up any books on my Christmas list!

New Girl sounds like a fantastic read! Apparently it's contemp/paranormal? The cover of Double looks so freaky! Must check it out soon!
Awesome mailbox!

The New Girl sounds awesome. I'm looking forward to reading that one. Congrats on your Jane Austen wins!

Ooh the Scholastic warehouse sale does sound very dangerous! Looking forward to seeing your loot in your next IMM.

Happy holidays!

I went through a Classic book phase in high school and I tried to read all of Jane Austen's books. I really only liked Pride and Prejudice though. I don't think I finished most of them. Please don't hurt me!

I think that New Girl looks interesting. I always have to check out books with people underwater.

I grabbed New Girl, too, and I can't wait to start it!

RYC: I love my Nook! I haven't tried out the kindle so I can't really compare the two, but the Nook Color is a great reader.
