In My Mailbox (16)

   Posted by: Faith   in Rye Thoughts

Today I’m featuring a two-week backlog of books… and I really wish my camera was connected to this computer, because it would be a whole lot easier to just take a photo and post that, but… since the software is on the Husbando’s computer and he’s very busy, the long way of things it is.

I should also mention I went to a discount store when looking for treats for my NaNoWriMo group, and found a bunch of classic books on sale for $1.88… which is why there are so many books this week! Whoo-hoo for discount sales! (If you’re in Canada and live near a Liquidation World store, I recommend you check out their shelf of books… you never know what you’ll find!)

FYI: In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by The Story Siren to showcase books you’ve received for review, bought, borrowed, or swapped. Anyone can participate, and it’s a great way to showcase new books and encourage blogger/commenter interaction!







(This is a huge, 500+ page anthology of Ms. Marvel comics, starting with Ms. Marvel Issue #1.)





So… that’s what my mailbox (and wallet) have been up to for the past few weeks! The Love Inspired books I actually bought for market research – I have a package of highlighters and the Harlequin guidelines for writing one of these things next to me, and I’ve started highlighting the book according to different elements (ie. conflict, romance, backstory, hero vs. heroine POV) so I can see what goes into writing one of these things… we’ll see how that goes, and I’ll probably write a whole post on it sometime (I got the idea from author Holly Lisle, so I can’t take credit for it!).

And with that… what came in YOUR mailbox this week? :)
