Bringing in the Loot

This is part of the In My Mailbox series hosted by The Story Siren. This meme allows book bloggers around the web to showcase what awesomeness we bought, swapped, borrowed, or got this week. Check out my loot below!

Again I got a lot of books this week! I'm so excited for everything. I am hoping to get my reading speed back up as I've been kind of pokey for a little while.

Sticky Fingers by Burnham
Because I Am Furniture by Chaltas
Incarceron by Fisher
How to Ruin Your Boyfriend's Reputation by Simone Elkeles
Why I Fight by Oaks
Breathless by Warman

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Albatross by Bloss
Storm Glass by Maria Snyder

Inter-Library Loan:
Investigating Firefly and Serenity : Science Fiction on the Frontier by Cochran
I have a slight obsession with this saga (as it was a show and then later a movie) and am intrigued by it. My husband and I will be sharing this book. :D

Well, that's everything. What did you get?

P.S. I've decided this year that I'm going to do at least one (if not two) HUGE contests to give away many of the books I've collected. The majority will be 2010 releases. My question is, what should I do? Should I do a traditional "form" contest, have people submit something, or just choose random followers at random times? What would you do?

Hmm, not sure! I'm kind of running into the same problem. I've got a few things to give away but can't decide how to do it.

Great books you got this week. The Forest of Hands and Teeth is pretty good. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

Jessica said...

Nice haul!

I really hate when contests make you do a bunch of stuff for extra points, so just don't do that. ;-)

Wow... you have a great assortment!!

You have a few books that I want to read as well so I would love to read any upcoming reviews to see if I ought to bump them up my list!

Kathy Martin said...

Great books this week! I'll have to look for the Firefly/Serenity one too.

I like contests that are simple. If I have to jump through too many hoops I don't bother. Also, it is harder for you keeping track of and calculating entries.

Happy reading!
