In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi over at The Story Siren and all you have to do is post about what books you received that week by mail, library, or store.

Well it looks like I'm starting my IMM entries from scratch and I'm doing it with some awesome books.

Wednesday night I had my book club meeting at a local Books-A-Million and after we had finished I went on the hunt for Diana Gabaldon's new graphic novel, The Exile. I've just flipped through it so far, but the images are amazing! If you're a fan of the Outlander series, I highly recommend checking it out.

Yesterday morning I woke up to find an e-mail that I thought was spam. I then went to my local newspaper's website and found that it was NOT spam and that it was like the universe saying "we heard you, we heard you!" and found out that Birmingham now has a new and FANTASTIC used bookstore called 2nd and Charles. As soon as I read the article I asked my husband if we could go (yesterday just happened to be the Grand Opening) and this store is massive my book nerd dream come true!

I stopped looking at all the books because I was already up to thirteen books after only looking at the YA section and two aisles of the Fiction section.

From 2nd and Charles I got:
The Summoning - Kelley Armstrong
Impossible - Nancy Werlin
Catch Me If You Can - Frank W. Abagnale 
A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens
The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck
The Canterbury Tales - Geoffrey Chaucer
Girl at Sea - Maureen Johnson
The Naughty List - Suzanne Young
The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins
The Myths of the North American Indians - Lewis Spence
From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris (for my mother-in-law)
Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson (2 copies)

So what do you think? Is there something on my list that you've read and enjoyed? Let me know!
