Mailbox Tuesday, that is. I'm not sure what my problem is...it's not like I didn't read other people's Mailbox Monday posts yesterday. So how on earth did I forget to post my own acquisitions. Oh well, my brain isn't always the most cooperative of body parts.
The good news for the old wallet is that they all came from PaperbackSwap. And even more good news, I get to pass off the blame for a couple of them. So, what did I get?
Best Science Fiction Stories of H.G. Wells. This is another book for that class I'm hoping to use with Annie next school year. But man, do I want to just crack it open right now!
Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Just one of those books that I've always thought I should read, so when I happened to see it at PaperbackSwap, I just ordered it.
Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto. This is one of those duel point-winners. Eva's review made me add this to the old wish list to start with, then Melody's review made further resistance futile.
Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres. I'm afraid poor Chris is taking the rap for this one. Sorry, Chris...I know you haven't even reviewed it yet. But when you go posting your own acquisitions like that, it tends to make people curious. Then they have to go investigate those books they've never heard of. And occasionally one of those books will just sound so damn interesting that they cannot even make themselves wait for a review and they'll just haul off and order the book. And when that happens, well, I'm afraid you're just going to have to shoulder the blame.
