In My Mailbox

July 25, 2010

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie.

Every week (or skipping some, depending on how frequently new books enter my life!), I’ll be posting on Sundays about what books I got, from all sources – bought, borrowed, exchanged, etc.

(Yes, yes, I know, this is a huge list, and I’m supposed to be on a book-buying ban … I couldn’t help it! Audible had a sale!)

Won from contests (last four are audiobooks):


Purchased from (all of places!) HomeSense:

<-This one has a different cover, though. And I also got Best-Ever Book of Organic Cooking by Ysanne Spevack, but I can’t seem to find product information for it anywhere!

Purchased from Audible:

Purchased from Chapters:

    Girls of Riyadh and The Ayatollah Begs to Differ are both interesting reads, I read them both last year. I hope you enjoy. I also recently read and loved Hunger.

    Yummy! A middle eastern cook book. Delicious. Cook me up some hummus, falafel, and samosas and I am there!

    You seem to have a Middle Eastern theme going this week. If you are interested, I’m doing a Middle East Reading Challenge (with very loose rules) staring August 1. In fact, I’ll add the books on your list to my suggested reading.

    I read an excerpt of Mennonite in a Little Black Dress and have to say that I am pretty psyched about getting the chance to read it. Also, that Middle Eastern cookbook looks amazing! I hope you enjoy all your new reads!

      Hehe, pretty much. Thankfully, the three review copies that I got through tour sites are no longer in my house – I read them and sent them back out in the mail in shame.
