IMM (11)

*In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by the story siren, for more information please visit her website and click the tab for IMM.*

Also, my bookcases don't normally look like that, I'm in the middle of reorganizing my books.

Oh dear. I've decided to start doing these again. My excuse is I need to learn how to talk and look more professional in front of an audience...but man am I going to need luck on that. Since my last IMM post was... many moons ago (almost 8 months ago.) I've decided to do the video on only the most recent books I've gotten, but provide a full list of my purchases/ received books since then. Dear lord, do not feel honor bound to look through that list. I will not think any less of you for skipping it. My video though, I kind of would like you to watch.

Full Aqusitions list since August 2011... (there is no rhyme or reason or order to this.)

(*It's true, I did indeed title Island Heat, Jill Myles ran a contest for titling the book on Oddshots back when it was first coming out, my suggestion won and the book was titled by me.)

171 books in 8 months... (counting novellas,mangas and the books in the IMM) 151 (not counting novellas or IMMS or mangas) Holy s**t! That's roughly 21 books a month! I practically bought a book a day for 5 months! I need to stop buying books and use the dang library. This is ridiculous! What the hell, self, what the hell?
