In My Mailbox (3)




I am so lucky this week! The Jacksonville Public Library had their bi-annual Friends of the Library Book Sale. Man, did I rack up! I went after work Friday and bought this box.


I think there are about 30 books in the box, plus what I stuck on my bookshelf to read before giving them to the kiddos. Then, I went back today and took advantage of the $10 bag of books. Anything you can jam in a paper bag was only 10 bucks! Let me say, I am a PRO at cramming stuff in to tight spaces. My bag might have been about to burst, but I got my money's worth! I even scored a few audiobooks and videos. =) The highlight of my trip was my leather-bound 3rd edition of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle for an amazing $3!! What a steal. The pages are in great shape and hardly show any discoloring. WHOOP.


Now I have to wait until October to do it again.

  2. Seeing a box of books makes me giddy. It just does. But I totally get what you mean - I'm counting the days to our library's bi-yearly yard sale. This thing is HUGE, plus the library gets rid of a lot of their books, too. Always a great deal to be made. :-)

  4. A box of books = a dream come true. Hope you enjoy reading all of them! Looks like you'll need to clean up your shelves a bit to have room for the books!

    Take a look at what's in my Mailbox.

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…
