In My Mailbox (5-8-11)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren where you share what books you acquired this week. I had a BIG book week, and for pretty cheap! I received two of the books that I won from GoodReads this week and went to the Friends of the Library sale and got some summer reading. I was pretty excited to find these books and to know that I have some good summer reading books lined up.

Received from GoodReads
Joy for Beginners by Erica Bauermeister
South of Superior by Ellen Airgood

The Funny Thing Is … by Ellen DeGeneres
Light on Snow by Anita Shreve
Body Surfing by Anita Shreve
The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve
Riverside Park by Laura van Wormer
We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates
In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
Baker Towers by Jennifer Haigh
The Gravedigger’s Daughter by Joyce Carol Oates
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebovitz

So, what was in your mailbox this week?


  1. Hi Kristen, I just found your blog through the IMM for this week and I am now a new follower :)

    Wow, looks like you seriously have your reading cut out for you! Gotta love winning books-- I actually work as a librarian, so I tend to borrow almost all of my books from the different libraries I work at, but I know you can pick up some really great finds at the book sales too!

    Feel free to visit me sometime, and happy reading :)

  2. I've got Joy for Beginners on my TBR pile, too. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it (and to reading it myself)!

    Looks like a great bunch of purchases, too. The world would be a sad, empty place without those library book sales, wouldn't it? ;-)

    Happy reading!

  3. I really want to read The Sweet Life in Paris! I'm a sucker for travel memoirs.
