In My Mailbox (44)


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 to my Nook, or picked up from the library.

In the mail 
- Nothing this week. 

From the library
 - I checked out a TON of books about origami for a teen program I'm planning. I'm not going to list them all, but I'll mention the two that I've found to be most helpful - Origami Birds by Duy Nguyen and The Complete Origami Course by Paul Jackson. 


Bought:

- Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss 
I got my tax refund back, and I saved most of it but set a little aside for shopping and book-buying. :) 


What's in your mailbox this week?

My husband is currently reading the sequel to The Name of the Wind and he is really enjoying it. He doesn't want to do anything else in his free time. Maybe one day I will tackle these tomes! Happy reading!

Origami - sounds interesting! I just won the second in The Name of the Wind series so I think I'm going to have to buy the first one and read them - everyone I know loves them.

I've been dying to read Viola as I love Trigiani's adult books, but haven't gotten around to it. I hope it's a good read and I hope you enjoy all your books!

I want to read Viola in Reel Life. I haven't read anything by Adriana Trigiani yet but I aim to change that! I attended a library conference where we had a Skype chat with her and she told us about the book she is currently working on. It sounds good.

I've also heard good things about Rothfuss. I hope you enjoy your books. I want to spend some of my tax refund money on books too. I'm really tempted by the thought of an e-reader...

I've read Eat This, Not That! I haven't heard of the other two books though, but I will definitely be checking them out! Enjoy!

I really enjoyed Viola in Reel Life! And I love her shoes on the cover :) Have fun with your origami!

Eat This Not That would scare me. I am sure all the foods I like are a "not" :)
