In my Mailbox #15

Instead of posting this in my usual Sunday slot, I am (obviously) posting it a day late. This is because I was busier than I thought I would be yesterday and have not had time to sit down and write this post until now. The main reason for this will become clear once you see the amount of books I received in the past week!

Thankfully, I only received two eBooks in the last week, so as usual, I will put these at the end of the post. But first, we have a mountain (yes, definitely a small mountain - or a large hill at the very least) of physical books to get through. I received quite a few review copies from publishers during the week and I went book shopping with Jenny from Chocolate Chunky Munkie, and this is the result of these two things. Prepare yourselves - I think this may be a personal record!

I'm really looking forward to it! And I thought, while I was there, I would get the second one as well :)

My last IMM before my book buying ban looked about the same size :-D and do I really need to point out that my TBR piles have transformed into mountain ranges a loooong time ago?

Pen to Paper said...

Awww Birgit - I think mine is the same now. It's definitely not a single mountain any more. I love it this way, though. I'd much rather have to spend an hour having to choose what to read next, than to look at the books I have left unread and realise I'm not in the mood for them! How terrible would that be?!
:)

So many books, so little time said...

Lol that is quite impressive hon!

Seriously impressive haul, Dani! I have quite a few of these books on my TBR list and I just finished Anna Dressed in Blood yesterday, so I'll be curious to see what you think. :-) x
