In My Mailbox

I am participating in this weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, where we share what books we received this week.

Did everyone win some goodies from the Summer Giveaway Hop? I was fortunate to win some giveaways!

My "real" mailbox was also very happy this week, receiving a few books previously won in giveaways that I have been eagerly waiting for. I also received a few more books for review this week.

I was one of the winners of this e-book in Blog Fest 2011 hosted by the author:

I won this e-book in the Indie Author Giveaway Carnival hosted by Emily at What Book Is That?:

Scourge: A Grim Doyle Adventure (Book #1 of Grim Doyle Adventures)
by David H. Burton

What is so cool about this e-book is that it is personalized: One of the character's names has been replaced with mine! How cool is that?!

Thanks again, Emily & David!


I also won this e-book in the Indie Author Giveaway Carnival hosted by Emily at What Book Is That?. Actually, "won" is the wrong word because anyone who filled out the form received the e-book, so there were unlimited copies:

    It looks like everyone is in agreement that the Fever series is a good one! I'm so looking forward to listening to that one.

    I had never heard of Scourge before I won the giveaway, but I'm looking forward to that one as well.
