In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.
After the Blog Hop post Friday, I felt inspired to visit my friendly neighborhood used bookstore. Well, it's not exactly in the neighborhood. It was a 30 minute drive across town. (Well worth it.) I managed to score 7 copies each of The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin and Whirligigby Paul Fleischman. Both of which are going to be used and given away to my students at our lunch time book club. These should last us through the year. Although, I hope to fit in at least one more book by June. I also grabbed another copy of Lost Voices (love this book) by Sarah Porter. Not exactly sure how someone managed to trade in an ARC, but I'm not complaining. I want a whole set of this book!
Oh, I also won my ebay bid for The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead-Tossed Waves. Yay! I'm still tingly over the book trailer.
I'm currently reading Hunger (Riders of the Apocalypse) by Jackie Morse Kessler. I have to admit, I'm having a hard time with this one. I've been reading a lot of mythology type books, so this is a hard switch. I'm pressing on. I just got my first requests for book reviews (whoop, whoop), so I hope to start on those by the end of the week.
