In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which we share what books we have received in the mail, bought, borrowed or otherwise acquired during the week.

I didn't do an IMM post last week, so this is two weeks' worth of books. I've been good, only three books entered my home during this time.

Treasure of Khan by Clive Cussler - From BookMooch. I love Dirk Pitt novels, and even though I'm a bit sceptical towards the newer ones, I have to give them a chance. This one is a brick.

Pulse by Jeremy Robinson - Bought from The Book Depository. This is the first installment in the Chess Team Adventures, a new thriller series (book 2 is Instinct). Robinson describes himself as a combo of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly, so I had to try this.

My friend the librarian informed me the other day that my local library is giving away books (!), so of course I had to go check it out. There was a lot of poetry and not that much interesting stuff, so I only took home one book.

Still no sign of the last book from my Book Dep order though. It's been three weeks now, so I'm going to email them tomorrow and see if they can help. I want my book!

What goodies did you guys get this week?

I wish I had as much self-restraint as you do. My mailboxes are here and here. Happy reading!

Kathy, it's hard, let me tell you! But I have realised that as long as I live in a very small 1-bedroom flat and only average 3 books a month, I cannot possibly get all the books I want. Sadly. Maybe when I'm retired. ;)

I hope you enjoy your books! :)

The Book Depository are very slow with deliveries to me too. When I last ordered from them, they sent my book to Canada by mistake (I live in Ireland!). haha! They were very helpful when I emailed, though, so you should try that!
