In My Mailbox

“In My Mailbox” is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to highlight books received during the week.

A few Cybils nominees arrived:

Actually, Hound Dog True came twice, since another judge sent me her copy, too.

On Monday, I took a trip to my favorite used bookstore and came home (as usual) with a few things.

I’ve been slowly acquiring the hardcover British editions of the Harry Potter books. I have book 6, thanks to a donation to the Friends of the Library’s used book shop, and I have a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, thanks to a friend in the U.K. Three out of seven; nearly halfway there!

I’ve been stalking the Writing Reference shelves for several books recommended in a Writing for Children class, and this is one of them. One of these days, Picture Writing is going to show up, I know.

My obsession with appreciation of Mr. Gaiman’s writing is not news to anyone who knows me. This might just tip me over the edge into signing up for one more challenge for 2012, though.
