In My Mailbox (22)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie‘s This Week in Books). Basically you just post about new books that came into your house over the past week, whether in the mail or by getting them at the library or by buying them in a store.

I really wasn’t planning on doing another IMM so soon but I bought/got awesome goodies this week so I just had to share.

First of all, I bought a Kindle Fire this week!

It’s awesome so far. And I got a good deal on it so that makes it even better.

I did a write up/review of it if you’re interested about my thoughts.

I ended up getting some Kindle books this week as well.

Goose Girl by Shannon Hale [Yay for cheap Kindle books!]
The Magicians by Lev Grossman [Library book]

I’ve also decided to start an informal book club here on my blog. I’d love for you to join. Details are here and here. We’re having a poll to decide our book for March. It’s in the right sidebar. Feel free to vote for what you’d like to read. I hope you’ll stick around for it!

  1. I love when kindle deals pop up too. It seems like they are getting more frequent.
    Looks like you have chosen some good books for your book club. Hopefully I will get to join in one of these months.
    Happy reading!

    • It does seem like that or maybe I’m just finding more deals that interest me.
      Check in later this week, Lucy. I’m posting a new poll for April’s books soon.

    • The trick is to think of them as good for different things. I use my Kindle for review books, free public domain books, super cheap deals, and going on trips. I still read (and own tons) physical books so I don’t consider it cheating. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I feel like my own Kindle Fire is full of cheap buys… Some of them have been super fantastic too! I wholeheartedly support having an online book club; I’ll have to try to participate sometime! 🙂

  3. A book club? I would love to join! (can I?)
    I got my Kindle Fire for Xmas & I gotta admit I neglected it *cries* for my tablet. The other night my tab battery died & I left the charger at work so I used my KF for more than 2 minutes & I am lovin my new baby. I wish it was a bit bigger screened. I tried to read a book using my PDF App & it couldn’t make it fit right 😦 Using the PDF book as a Kindle book it was too small. I couldn’t win!
    *going to read your review* I must write my review.
    My IMM

  4. Congratz on the Kindle Fire!! I hope to get a tablet soon – so I can take advantage of both the Kindle and Nook apps and selections 😀

    I hope you love the Fire and that you enjoy the books you got this week 🙂

    Thanks so much for dropping by my blog 🙂
