In My Mailbox

IMM is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

On this week's edition of "Find The Beagle" I think I did pretty darn good. The library had a book sale last weekend- picked up 2 hardbacks for a buck each. I also hit up Half Price today and found 3 awesome titles, and got several reviews books I am really stoked about. So without further ado...

And this last picture is just to show how neurotic and weird Toby actually is. Yes, he did this himself. Yes, he sat there just staring at me. Yes, that's a shower curtain and bath rug protecting the chair from him so he doesn't ruin it. And yes, that's a bungee cord keeping said protection up.

That's my week.... what did everyone else get?


  1. *LOL* Toby is SO cute! You know, one of the main reason I love your IMM post weekly is because of him!

    Nice loads of books you have there. I would like to read Fallen myself but perhaps I'm going to wait for its paperback version to be published soon.

    Anyways, I hope you enjoy your books! Happy weekend. And yes, give Toby some extra pets on my behalf ;)

  2. I love reading your IMM's because of Toby. He's adorable! I laugh every time.

    You got tons of great books! Hope you enjoy them :)

  3. You have lots of goodies! Enjoy your new books :)

  4. I think I'd go through some major hair pulling and scratching to get those books! Happy reading :)

    *paws at the book*

    Oh, Toby's next to The Eternal Ones. That book strikes me as a good book. Winter Longing! I finished reading that the other day and I'm wondering how you'll react to it. We must compare notes afterwards ;)

    I wonder if Toby acted that way because he was like, "Ugh, I'm so sick of you taking pictures of the books! I'M THE ONE YOU LOVE FIRST!" ;P

    Anyhoo, great haul this week! You got way more than I did, lolz.

  14. Great books this week. I really enjoyed Madapple. I definitely want to read Poison Eaters so I'll look forward to your review. Happy Reading!

  15. Toby is so cute!! Love the pics!! I really want to read Jekel and Hyde :)

  16. Awesome books! I'm totally jealous of Jekel Loves Hyde & The Ghost And The Goth. Happy reading! :)

  17. How do you get your dog to go in those positions?? 0_0 it's so adorable.
    You've gotten/bought so many books, so your weeks probably going very good. I think you'll enjoy fallen :) I hope you have a good week and Happy Reading!!

  18. Ahh, I can't wait to read Something Lake Fate!

    Also, I recommend you push A Field Guide for Heartbreakers to the top of your reading stack, I really, really enjoyed it :)

  19. Toby is so cute! Many hardbacks this time.
