In My Mailbox #1...and a potential giveaway

I'm finally jumping on the bandwagon and posting IMMs (rather than trying to come up with titles for posts that achieve the same thing without being called IMM). In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm hoping that, when school starts back, I'll be able to do vlogs (this will allow me to ramble more about the books I get *evil laugh*). My school provides students with laptops, and we're switching from our lovely Lenovos that have styluses to Macbooks with video cams.

This week's books...

For review:
Following Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci (from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill (from Free Press blog tours)

Android Karenina by Ben H. Winters (thanks vvb32 Reads!)
Wonder Girl by Don van Natta, Jr. (thanks Minding Spot!)
Fire Island by John J. Stevens (thanks Literary R&R!)
Grendel by John Gardner (thanks again, Literary R&R!)
Those That Wake by Jesse Karp (thanks Fire and Ice!)

From BookMooch:
A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies by Bartolome de las Casas
The Birth of the Gods: The Origin of Primitive Beliefs by Guy E. Swanson

Yay, lovely stack of books!

If anyone was observant of my participation in the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon, you may have noticed that I already have a copy of Grendel. Yeah, I had forgotten about that when I entered the giveaway at Literary R&R and so I'm stuck with a duplicate copy now. Is anyone interested in a giveaway for my second copy (the nicer, newer one)? It could be a 200 followers giveaway, since I've just recently passed that milestone...

  4. Wonderful books -- enjoy them (too bad about winning what you already have but sweet of you to pass it on!).
