Thanks to Atria (Simon & Schuster) and HarperCollins for my mailbox books this week!  And a big thanks to the retailers and pubs for discounting the ebooks so that I spend my money.  I certainly didn’t need more ebooks!


I hope your mailboxes were rich with goodies this week, too!

Does anyone remember these?  Book fairs were my absolute favorite days in school, it got me out of class and into the library.  And I got to buy books!  Well usually.  Sometimes my parents didn’t have the money for new books, but I still loved to look and touch everything the library got in stock…and if I was lucky enough to get some, they got put in a cute little baggy for me to take home, like little treasures.  Those were the best days!


What’s your blogspiration this week?

  1. Great eBooks! Holy moly! You have a few I got recently but you have others I’d love to have like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter! A teacher picked that up last summer from my HS LMC and LOVED it! I really want to try it sometime!

      • That makes me sad 🙁 My teachers and parents really fostered a love of reading in me, but I guess there wasn’t as much stuff to compete for my attention, like the internet, smartphones, and other gaming devices. I had Atari and the original Nintendo, but my fun time on those was limited. I could go outside or I could read for the most part. I wonder if that’s the difference?

  2. Oh my GOODNESS that’s an epic haul. And I’ve heard AMAZING things about The Girl of Fire and Thorns! Uh, as for your Blospiration? JAFHDHAGF. Yes, we had book fairs as kids, but I don’t remember them ever being that wonderfully elaborate. That is just… WOW. WOW WOW WOW! ♥

  3. OMG!!! THROW. BACK! I totally remember school book fairs!! They were THE BEST! Do you remember book catalogs like Troll? and Scholastic?? HOMG! I would save up all my money and spend it on a crazy book order!!

    • OMGASDFGHJHG!!! Book catalogs! Yes! I also remember placing an order and waiting and waiting and waiting for it to come in. And waiting… And when I asked my 6th grade teacher if she knew when they’d be in, she said “How am I supposed to know? I’m not the post office.” I hated that B from then on out.
