In My Mailbox [5]

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share books that we've received.

This week, I actually bought books for a change!

An Abundance of Katherines I got at Garden Ridge for $1.99. The rest I got at my library's bookstore for $2 total. You see, they recently added a sci-fi and fantasy shelf there, and I was going to "just look" but ended up buying four books.

The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt are actually pretty beat-up copies (the covers are nearly falling off), but a friend of mine is almost forcing me to read the Wheel of Time series, so I bought them. Besides, I can find better copies in another used bookstore on another day...

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is another one that a (different) friend is forcing me to read. This copy is kind of beat-up too, but not so bad.

Ender's Game (which is actually in like-new condition) is one that I've heard good things about, and I like sci-fi, so it should be good.

I'm probably never gonna get around to reading An Abundance of Katherines, but it was only $2...brand new...I couldn't pass it up!


  1. OMG you lucky duck, John Green for $1.99!? And that cover is KILLER! Happy reading all that sci-fi and fantasy! :)

    Here's my IMM.

  2. Douglas Adams was a superb author. I hope you like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.


I read and appreciate every comment, so thank you in advance!
