In My Mailbox - September 4, 2011

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

Is everyone exhausted from the Back to the Books Giveaway Hop? I know I am! I haven't yet managed to get through the whopping list of over 300 participants. You still have a few days left to win some great prizes! If you haven't done so yet, please click on the "Giveaways" tab at the top of the page or the "Back to the Books Giveaway Hop" button in my right sidebar and enter my giveaway for CAD$15 worth of your choice in book(s) from The Book Depository! If I reach 600 followers on GFC, I will simultaneously celebrate my 600 Followers Giveaway and draw a second winner!

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

I won this e-book at a giveaway hosted by Heather at Earth's Book Nook:

Thanks again, Heather & Greg!

I won this e-book in a giveaway hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer. I use the term "won" loosely because the author generously gifted each person who entered with a copy of the e-book!:

I won this e-book in a giveaway hosted by Kimberly at Coffee Time Romance and More:

I "won" (and I use that term loosely because the author gifted everyone who commented with a copy) this e-book at a giveaway hosted by Krystal at Live To Read:

  1. I have heard of Ghost Huntress series but can't make up my mind whether I want to read it or not. :/

  2. You got some great books this week. :D I'm feeling the same as Michelle, I've heard of the Ghost Huntress series, and I've contemplated starting it...but I think I need to read through some of my mailbox before I choose to get more books. haha ;P
