Bringing in the Loot

This is part of the In My Mailbox series hosted by The Story Siren. I bought one book, but I figured I'd share it anyway.

Bought:

Stray Cover

I bought Stray by Rachel Vincent because I felt bad about having a library copy. There aren't that many of them and since I fully intend on reading the entire series, I figured I would go ahead and invest in it.






I forgot to share it last week, but it is book-related. I am on a Twilight discussion board over on theNest.com. It's a sub-board of the general Book Club board. We decided in honor of New Moon, that came out this week, that we would do a secret gift exchange. There was a $20 spending limit and it had to be shipped out by 11/9/09. Here's what I sent:

Twilight gift box I sent
Homemade notecards, a bookmark, Twilight magnets, homemade necklace and earrings, homemade card, lion & lamb figurines & a hand-painted, apple-shaped pencil holder.

I received:

Twilight gift I receivedMatchbox silver Volvo, pencil pouch, Twilight Woods lotion from Bath & Body Works, candy, bookmark, & a "I Drive Like A Cullen" car cling. (P.S. There were feathers when I opened the box.)

That's what came to me this week. What'd you get?

Stray sounds really awesome. I probably would've squealed in excitement if I opened up that big box of Twilight goodies. Awesome week! :)

Stray sounds really interesting, I've added it to my goodreads list. That swag box is too cute too, it sounds like it was a really fun exchange. Enjoy your stuff!

I keep seeing Stray around the blogs and it looks like something I might be willing to try. Happy reading!

I'm plowing through Stray pretty quickly, so I should have a review up in the next week or so. The exchange was great! @Cindy: I really want the jewelry box & Borders has the bookmark!

LOVE the gift box - how cool feathers! :) What a cool idea - I have the Stray series (not that it's called that but the name is escaping me) anyway I hope you love it! :)
