In My Mailbox (8)

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.

Again this is two weeks' worth of mailbox. I've been good.

From BookCrossing:
Joe Jones by Anne Lamott
Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead

There's a holiday gift exchange going on over at BookCrossing, where everyone posts a wishlist of books and small things they would like to get, and you send whatever you want to whoever you want. It's a great idea and lots of fun. These books were sent to me by two wonderful BookCrossers who found them on my wishlist.

My original copy of Bad Debts by Peter Temple never showed up, so I emailed The Book Depository and they promised to send me a replacement copy, which arrived this week. They even included one of their new bookmarks. Yay for TBD, boo for the Norwegian Postal Service!

What did you get in your mailbox this week?

I was also really impressed with the Book Depository lately when a book arrived really badly water damaged. The pages were completely stuck together. Our postal service didn't want anything to do with it but the Book Depository sent another copy straight away!
