In My Mailbox 6 (It's been awhile!)
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Go ahead and join in on the fun. I know I love to see what arrives in everybody's mailboxes, don't you?
Ok, it has been a few weeks since I have done an In My Mailbox, needless to say, it's a big one! I am sure I am going to forget one or two, I hope I don't but you know how that goes! When I say there is a ton, I am not kidding!
The first I am going to post are my purchases from Amazon.com. Have you heard of swagbucks yet? Well, I set swagbucks as my primary search engine and by searching, you can earn random swagbucks! You can exchange those swagbucks for many items, I used mine to get Amazon.com giftcards!

Yep, I am on a huge Urban Fantasty/Paranormal Romance kick. Not like I really needed to add any more books to my TBR, but I wouldn't be a true book nerd without an enormous pile of books that I need to read, right? I did begin "Moon Called" the first book of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. AWESOME book!
From my favorite thrift store, I bought these books at their 2/ .50 sale!
There is a box in my car of the books I bought but haven't brought them in, these are just the ones I brought in. I spent $10 and that was 40 books! I am not kidding you.... who knows when I will EVER be able to read them.. but that's what retirement is for, right? *Correction, I just realized I posted the "Gathering Storm" by Robert Jordan, that is the incorrect title, it should have been "The Great Hunt". I posted the wrong code. I can't tell which one it is in that mess of codes, so just know I DON'T have "The Gathering Storm"

I am going to be part of the blog tour for Nine Dragons on October 13th. Michael Connelly will be in Scottsdale, AZ at the Poisoned Pen for a signing on that date and I am going to go and getting my copy signed and will post photos, I hope! This one will be my first author signing! Yay!
The really cool part about this book, the author was still in high school when she wrote it. I am only a couple of chapters in, but let me say just from what I have read, Meg Christian has quite a career ahead of her if she continues to write. Also, according to the back of the book, proceeds from the sale go to help the homeless,
