In My Mailbox (32) - Holiday gift edition!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It's a time for everyone to share what books they acquired over the course of the week. I'll share what I received in the mail, bought at bookstores, downloaded, or picked up from the library.




This week I'll also share some great book-related gifts I received from friends & family. I love them all! 


In the mail: 
- All You Get Is Me by Yvonne Prinz (from Good Golly Miss Holly ARC Tours - not pictured)


Gifts: 
- Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern
- The Snuggie Sutra by Lex Friedman and Megan Morrison
- Fail Nation: A Visual Romp Through the World of Epic Fails by Failblog.org Community
- FU Haiku: Pissed-off Poetry for Every Occasion by Beth Quinlan and Perry Taylor


- More Book Lust by Nancy Pearl
- Book Lust to Go by Nancy Pearl
- I Do...Questions for the Biggest Day of Your Life by Evelyn Mcfarlane and James Saywell
- Jonathan Adler Peace/Love Nook case - I love this one because purple and orange were my school colors during my undergrad years! Check it out: 



I also received a cool calendar from Half Price Books: Literary Pets. It gave me some great ideas for pet names if I ever acquire another dog. For example, Bark Twain or Snarls Dickens. Definitely check out this hilarious calendar! It includes several 2011 store coupons in the back and lists all the locations of Half Price Books around the U.S. Awesome!



I was also really excited to receive some gift cards for Half Price Books and Barnes & Noble, my two most-frequented bookstores. One of them was a gift card for the Nook bookstore, and I have already spent it all...oops! Here's what I downloaded (all for less than $40):

The Lonely Planet book isn't free for Kindles. :(

Great downloads! I think that i may have to invest in an e-reader; they look like they're so convenient.
Happy reading!
