In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox (IMM) was started over at the The Story Siren by Kristie and has evolved to over 300 participating blogs.  It is a way for bloggers to network and socialize and to show everyone the various books that they have received.  Postings may vary by blog, some bloggers post weekly, bi-weekly and so forth.

I had a very diverse week in the book department. So, let’s just jump in and see what I got this week.

Ok, all you Twilight haters, brace yourself, my first acquisition is Twilight related!


Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (movie cover). I needed this book to add to my collection. I have 4 copies of each book.  *Stop laughing*  I have the hardcover, the paperback and the 2 movie cover paperbacks that were released (small and large--they are different) for each book.

The Twilight Graphic Novel, Vol. 2 by Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim

For Review:

A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Hope, Deception and Survival at Jonestown by Julia Scheeres

Tempest by Julie Cross

It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong by Andrew Napolitano

Reluctant Disciplinarian: Advice on Classroom Management From a Softy Who Became (Eventually) a Successful Teacher by Gary Rubinstein

Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade (as part of Adopt-an-Indie Month)

And just because:

Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan

Well, that is my week. I can't wait to see what everyone else got in their mailbox this week!

  3. I'm very jealous that you got Tempest this week! The story sounds really good and I haven't read a lot of time travel books so I'm hoping this might break way for them! Enjoy all of your books (especially the new Twilight one, that's quite a collection!)

  4. That really is a diverse collection! I love the cover for the classroom management book. Have you started it yet, is it useful? I'm always looking for a good book to add to my professional collection.

  5. You got some really good books this week. I would love to get the Twilight Graphic Novels but just haven't done it yet.

    Happy Reading :)

  6. My bookish collections are for Jane Austen novels and The Little Prince. :)

    I'm waiting for a copy of Tempest - I hope I get it this week!
