In My Mailbox (JULY) 7/31/10

In My Mailbox lets you peek into the contents of my mailbox on a weekly basis. I am listing all the lovely books that I have aquired this week. If you would like to participate and have your own “In My Mailbox” post, you can find more information here on the Story Siren's blog, where it all began..(This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie

I have not posted an IN MY MAILBOX post in months. I literally have books everywhere (since I live in two places) and have been overwhelmed, so I finally got my books together to compile my stack for this month.

Wow, that's a huge amount of books for review! You'll be busy for a while, but it's better than running out of material, right? Some great books, too. I'd be interested in how you find Minder and Personal Demons.
Have an awesome time reading everything!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
