In My Mailbox (imm) is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.
With the book buying ban still in effect (with an exception to gifts bought for others), I’ve still found myself acquiring books at the kind hands of some very generous folks:
- Graffiti Moon & Blood Song (Thank you Adiba!): Of all the Aussie YA novels I’ve read, I have not yet read one that I didn’t love.
- Thou Shalt Not Road Trip (Thank you Antony!): I’ve bumped this book’s status to “next” in my TBR pile because let’s just be honest — I’m a huge fan
- First Day on Earth (Thank you Sheila!): I was originally captured by its artwork, but even more so once I learned what it was about: a misunderstood teen who feels like he’s an alien in this world, and one who actually is an alien. (I like aliens.)
- There You’ll Find Me (Thank you Jen!): I’ve read a few novels by Jenny B. Jones (Save The Date is my favorite so far), and I was really excited to get her latest YA in the mail!
Also, Hubs and I celebrated our six year anniversary yesterday, and because we didn’t really do gifts for each other this year (although we did go to a fancypants dinner last night), we went shopping a little bit instead. To be honest, I’m not much of a shopper. My favorite place to go is Target (I love playing in the $1 bins and basically buying clearance tumblers and candy), if that gives you a hint of how much I like to shop.
But, I digress. We bought this as an anniversary gift while we were out:
Here, I took some other photos:
OH YEAH, BABY. Book + nerd = SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE. If you’ve got an iPhone 4/S, you can geek out and purchase one here.
