In My Mailbox #23 - SUPER DELUXE EDITION

Sunday, April 10, 2011

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie.
 

Well today is a special in my mailbox edition because thanks to my wonderful husband I got a KINDLE!!!!  He is the best husband in the world.  I have been thinking of getting one for a while and since we will be travelling overseas soon my husband decided to buy me one so I don't take a suitcase full of books with us.  I love that you can have a book within 1 minute, whatever you feel like reading.....although that is a little dangerous for a book addict.  I still will buy my Aussie books and my favourites in print but it is nice to have both options.

It has a sport cover on it at the moment so it doesn't get damaged while I am travelling.  I plan of getting a pretty cover when I get back!



BOUGHT:
Wild Roses by Deb Caletti - I am a big Caletti fan.  She really writes such heartfelt contemps.  And I love the cover of this edition.
Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian - After reading Audrey's review of this recently I rushed out and ordered a copy and it has finally arrived.  YA contemp.
Camille by Tess Oliver (not pictured) - A 99 cent book for my kindle.  Heard good things about this paranormal read.

WON:
August by Bernard Beckett - Thanks to Jess at The Tales Compendium.  This is an award winning NZ author who's books I have been eyeing off for a while now.  This is part thriller and part love story. 

SWAPPED/BORROWED:
This Gorgeous Game by Donna Freitas - YA contemp.  Heard amazing things about this from Nomes.
Nothing Like You by Lauren Strasnick - YA contemp.  Also again another rec from Nomes.

What did you get in your mailbox?

Congrats on getting your Kindle! :) It's an excellent way to read books while you're traveling because you don't have to worry about carrying books with you.

Is that This Gorgeous Game an ARC? Great books, and congrats on getting a Kindle! ;) I'm quite jealous, because you can read anywhere without worrying about bag space! Happy reading.

Congrats on getting a Kindle! Though I still prefer the printed version of books, Kindle can be useful when it comes to travelling. Also, Amazon offers some great free Ebooks :)

What a great husband! I still don't have an e-reader but (I can't believe I'm saying this) I've been thinking about getting one simply because I have so many ebooks on my laptop. Where are you planning on going for your trip, Nic?

Oh, and I haven't heard of most of these books so I'm sure you're going to be making me add some new books to my wishlist.

Great books this week! I *envy* this brand new Kindle, it's a constant debate with mum whether I should get one ( apparently, I going to go blind if I read anymore on 'electronic devices')
Can't wait to hear what you think about Wild Roses and Not That Kind of Girl.

Ps- Somerset College Celebration of Literature, week long festival every year in March where 30 or so Aussie Authors attend :P --> http://www.somerset.qld.edu.au/celebration/ ( open to public)
