In My Mailbox -- Borders' Going Out Of Business Edition

I happened upon a Borders that was closing while exploring an unfamiliar mall. It's weird that I keep getting emails about a Borders that is closing that is over an hour away from me, but no emails about this one, that is about 40 minutes away!  Anyway, I thought this was going to be a boring IMM week, but after I walked through those doors, I was doomed. I'm only going to tell you about the books that I'm going to read -- I got about double this amount to put in the library. These were all marked 40 to 50 percent off, and then I got my extra 10%, for my Borders Rewards.

 The Lover's Dictionary, by David Levithan
White Cat, by Holly Black
Glimmerglass, by Jenna Black
Stork, by Wendy Delsol
Inside Outby Maria V. Snyder

I, of course, need more books on my TBR like I need a hole in my head. But of course, that doesn't matter. I can't wait to get to these!

Also, I got a new audiobook from the library:

I listened to the first Flavia De Luce mystery and absolutely loved the narrator, so I decided to get the audio version of this one. The only problem is that I just found out I won this book through Random Buzzers, so I might end up reading at least part of it. 

So, I'm understandably excited about my new books for this week. How about you? What did you get? Make sure you go to visit The Story Siren to see all the other blogs participating in IMM this week! Thanks for stopping by.

And...I've been messing with my blog design. Trying to simplify. If you are reading this in a reader, you might want to check it out and let me know what you think. I'm still not sure I'm finished....

  1. A bookstore going out of business is bittersweet: sad that it's not going to be there anymore, but happy for the great deals!! I read and loved stork! Happy reading!

  2. Great set! I love White Cat and Glimmerglass. It's sad to see Borders go though.
    My IMM

  3. Wow, such good deals! I'm curious about White Cat. I'll be keeping an eye out for your reviews of these.

  4. Awesome books! I just read Inside Out! As much as it's sad to see a good bookshop go, I am mildly jealous of all the cheap books people are buying from the Borders shops. Happy Reading!

  5. I am planning on making a last chance trip to my borders tomorrow. I still have a gc to use! Stork looks awesome and i've heard the alan bradley book is great!

  6. Jealous! I'm glad the Borders around me isn't going out of business and all, but I love cheap books!

    I've read Glimmerglass and it's great! I really want to read the other books you bought (well, I've never heard of the Lover's Dictionary).

    Great books!


  7. I went to a Borders closing sale this past week too, where I also got GlimmerGlass! I really want to read Inside Out, I've heard its amazing but I haven't gotten around to getting myself a copy yet. So glad you were able to get tons of books for your school's library! Have a great week!

  8. I hope you enjoy The Weed That Strings The Hangman's Bag. I read it a while ago and loved it :)

  9. Great books! I'm reading White Cat now, and I'm having a hard time getting in to it!

    Here's my IMM.

    Happy Reading!

  10. A big fat YES to The Lover's Dictionary! It is such a fast read but you will find yourself rereading passages and savoring every last morsel. I can't wait to see your reviews on all of these :)

  11. Yay, I love the narrator for the Flavia de Luce mysteries too! She was excellent in the second one, looking forward to listening to the third!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
