In My Mailbox (35)

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie! It is a list of the books that I've received over the previous week, either in the mail, from the bookstore, or from trades.


Here's what I got this week:


Bought:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Won:
Beautiful Dead: Arizona by Eden Maguire
(@ Flipping Pages for All Ages)

Other:
17 Again DVD

Went Black Friday shopping got tons of bargains but found very little sales at the bookstores. I did enjoy some hot delicious Starbucks at a discount and only got to buy a book and a DVD. On the bright side, I get to go again tomorrow to finish shopping using my 30% coupons + Discount Card, which I stupidly forgot to take with me. So, I'll more than likely get 2 paperbacks I've been dying for and possibly a box set.

^^^ Now I want to see what you got in your mailbox.... ^^^

Catching Fire is an amazing read if you haven't read it already. And I"m super jealous that you were able to get to some Black Friday sales.
Happy reading!

I'd love to read Catching Fire and Beautiful Dead! 17 again is hysterical. I just saw it this year - have no clue how long its been out- but I laughed out loud a lot. It was fun. Enjoy!

I admire your fortitude in braving the Black Friday crowds. I did my shopping from my couch. Amazon had some great deals on DVDs. I loved Catching Fire and hope you do too. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading! And viewing!

Awesome books! I've been dying to read The Hunger Games and 17 Again is one of the funniest movies ever. I wouldn't have dared show my face of Black Friday, though. *hides* I don't have that kind of courage. ;)

Loved Catching Fire! I too was disappointed at the lack of sales at the bookstores. Bibliophiles should get some love on Black Friday too!

Awesome IMM. I adore Catching Fire. The Hunger Games series is one of my favorites. And I really want to see 17 Again--as much as I don't want to admit it, I do think Zac Efron is kind of hot. But that's just me. Enjoy! :)

I just finished reading Hiunger Games it didn't really suit me. I know everyone else seems to love it though, So I hope maybe when I read catching fire I like it more. Dead beautiful looks good too.
