In My Mailbox (24)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme run by The Story Siren which explores the books that have been delivered to our mailbox or doorstep or directly into our hot little hands.

For Review:
All About Daisy by O'Dell Hutchison
Finding You by Kristen Kehoe

Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala
Friend is Not a Verb by Daniel Ehrenhaft
Don't Sleep with Your Drummer by Jen Sincero
Freeze Frame by Heidi Ayarbe
I Can't Keep My Own Secrets: Six-Word Memoirs edited by Smith Magazine
Gentlemen by Michael Northrop
Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love by Andrew Shaffer (signed)

This was another big week for me in books for 2 reasons. I "discovered" and my husband took me on a shopping spree at Fountain Bookstore. BookCloseout has so many books that have been on my wish list that I couldn't pass them up. I've been listening to the free Tell Me a Secret podcast on i-Tunes - (if you haven't checked it out yet, do so immediately because it's wonderful) but I wanted to have the actual book too, and now I do. I kind of went a little overboard again, but the discount prices were just too good. I actually purchased 3 more books for future giveaways and aren't listed here.

Then this week we were in Richmond for my husband's job, so of course we had to stop by Fountain Bookstore. As soon as we walked through the door, he tells me I can get 5 books. I only picked 3, not that I couldn't find 5 books, but I felt a little guilty (and I should) because I thought I was trying to limit the number of books coming in the house until I made a massive dent in my TBR pile. So I think it's time for another book buying ban. I won't post about that too much (because there really isn't much more to say). 

So now that I feel guilty, self-indulgent, and am hanging my head in shame, I can't wait to see what you got in your mailbox.


  1. I loved I Can't Keep My Own Secrets. I have my students write their own six-word memoirs after I show them some of the memoirs in that book. It's so inspiring.

  2. I am proud of your book buying restraint! I haven't bought a book for ages either! (actually haven;t even been to the shops for 5 weeks!)

    Love some of your picks ~ a few of them are on my wish list. Hope you enjoy them. Don't feel bad about your TBR!!! At least you have one :)

  3. Aww, don't feel bad about going overboard - we all do it at some point right?

    Here's my IMM:
