In My Mailbox (6/27/10)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.  IMM is a great way to meet new people and I love seeing what other bloggers are reading!   

This was a great week here at I'd So Rather Be Reading!  Two huge things happened; first, a friend of my husband's gave me her Kindle that she didn't like---a brand new Kindle for free!  I've been wanting one really badly and I love it so far!

The second great thing is that we found out that I've been quoted on two author websites:  April Maley's website (I Will Not Be Silent) and Sylvia Dickey Smith's website (Dance on His Grave, Dead Wreckoning)!  I don't want to toot my own horn, as my mom would say, but I was so excited about being quoted that I had to share it!  Thank you so much to both authors; we are so honored!  Okay, I just realized that every sentence so far ends with an exclamation point.  I'm going to try to tone it down now. 

In addition to the Kindle and quotes, I got some books that I'm really excited about:

Annette Laing sent me the first book in the Snipesville Chronicles:  Don't Know Where, Don't Know When

I bought the fourth installment in the Immortals Series by Alyson Noel, Dark Flame.  

I'm branching out!  I received in the mail two works of poetry by EJ Stevens, which were wrapped up beautifully like a present.  I should have taken a picture of them before I opened the package but I ripped it open without thinking.  Impatient me!  Look for my reviews of In The Shadows and Shadows of Myth and Legend soon.

Lastly, I got another book in for review:  Cleo by Helen Brown.  I'm going to be part of a blog tour for Cleo including reviews, giveaways, and guest posts starting August 31st.  Look for my review of Cleo then!

Thank you for stopping by I'd So Rather Be Reading!  Don't forget to sign up for our contests (click the links to sign up).  We have three giveaways ending June 30th:  an autographed copy of I Will Not Be Silent, Twilight tees in honor of the Eclipse movie, and a $60.00 gift card to CSN Online Stores.  I hope you have a great week and happy reading!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I always bring 2 books with me, just in case I finish what I am reading, so having an emergency book in your bag is a great idea!

    I am new to your blog and am now a follower!
    Have a great day!

  2. Wow, a Kindle for free?! That's awesome! I wonder why she didn't like it...? I hope you like the Kindle and I hope you enjoy your books this week - happy reading!

  5. Hi Kelli!

    Coming by to envy your loot and was happy to hear about the EJ Stevens poetry loot. Looking forward to hearing what you think, I really like her blog site, always interesting articles and reviews on the latest paranormal fiction.

    Have a great relaxing Sunday.

    PS Come over for my loot tomorrow. Yes I'm being deliciously lazy so until next time.
