In My Mailbox (16)

Welcome to In My Mailbox, hosted by the Story Siren.  This week I've got a bunch of books to share, some bought from McKays and the library sale, some for review, and one that I won.  Sorry for the poor picture quality - I had to use my phone this time.

These are all from the library sale:
House of Meetings by Martin Amis
At Home by Bill Bryson
Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs
The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber

More from the library sale:
The Soloist by Mark Salzman
Lancelot by Walker Percy
Hunger by Knut Hamson
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

Three from the library sale:
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson
Olive Kitteredge by Elizabeth Stout
Certain Women by Madeleine D'Engle

One for review:

More from the library sale:
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
Object Lessons by Anna Quindlen
Thunderstruck by Erik Larson
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

For review:
The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma - sent from Simon & Schuster along with a copy of The Time Machine by HG Wells with a matching cover!  Love it!

And finally, I won this signed copy of Enclave by Ann Aguirre from Karen at For What It's Worth.  Thank you Karen and Ann!


  1. What a week for you! I love, love, love Augusten Burroughs. Have you read anything else by him?

  2. Meg, it's sad to say that I still haven't read any of his books! And what's worse is that I can think of at least three others that I own off the top of my head. I need to just move him to the top of my stack I guess.

  3. Holy crap--you got some good books! I especially love Magical Thinking and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!
