In My Mailbox (2)

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.

I went back to the used bookstore Wednesday and traded some stuff in for store credit. While I was checking out the YA section, two employees were putting some books on the shelves near me when a woman came up to them. She started asking if they had any copies of Hunger Games and my heart started singing. I quickly told them that I had not seen any copies of the book on the shelves but that they were totally worth reading and that they were some of my favorite books. One of the employees and I started talking (ok, I started telling him what Hunger Games was about because he said he liked books where people get fight/get killed) and after a minute or so he tells me that I seem to know a lot and that I should work there. Oh, book guy. If only you knew how big my love of books really is.

Anyway, I only got three books while I was there.

gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson
The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

I've been wanting to get a copy of Joshilyn Jackson's book after Anna raved about her panel at DBF.

What books did you get this past week? Do you think I should apply for a job at that bookstore? I'm considering it.


  1. Awww snap, Maureen Johnson rocks.

    Happy reading.

    And yes, apply for the job, it's more money for more books!

  2. I would definitely apply for a job there! Where is it anyway? I would love to check it out!

    Also, let me know how Catch 22 is. James has tried to read it several times and he has been unable to get through. I would love to hear your opinion on it.

  3. Seen both never read the books. Happy Reading. Check out what was In My Mailbox.

  4. I would love to work at a bookstore.
