There are certain months of the year that I go a little crazyboots when buying books: August - my birthday month, October - huge book release month (at least I think it is), and January - in hopes that there will be a big snowstorm that will have me housebound for days. Of course this never happens but I always hope that it will and I buy books. Well, this is my excuse this year anyway. On Thursday I treated myself at a 3 for 2 bargain book sale at Books-a-Million and then came home to find I had 4 separate packages waiting for me! Needless to say I have imposed a book buying ban for the rest of January (and possibly February but that may be pushing it).  

 I can't wait to see what you got in your mailbox (and for the snow to start falling).

  2. Girl, where do you live? Come to Philly and you'll get the snow you've been wishing for :) It's all we've been seeing lately.

    This haul is AWESOME, by the way. I just marked a few of these to read on Goodreads, so you definitely turned me on to a few new books.

    Let me know your thoughts on CUM LAUDE. I've never had such a negative reaction to a book; I completely couldn't get into it.

    Here's what's in my mailbox this week!

  4. Sometimes it just feels *so good* to have a stockpile of great books. Just thinking about getting to read them is a mood-lifter. Looks like you've got some great ones this week!

  6. You did get a great bunch of books! I hope you get a major snowstorm so that you can read them (unless you live in Hawaii ;-)). Fall for Anything was really heart-breaking. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

  7. What would you do without books in a snowstorm? :-)
    The new Ahern book sounds really interesting and I really want Revolution.

  8. No snow here. It did fall in December, but now it's all gone. And I'm glad it's over. Such a mess. :P The Kid Table looks so cute. I heard it's a very cool and fun book. I want to read that one too. Going to add it to my tbr list. :) Have fun reading the books you got.

    I'm curious to read your reviews on those. Here's hoping you get a nice big snow storm so you can read all those good books!
