I meant to post this yesterday, but didn't get a chance...
I wasn't expecting to be buying any books at a bookstore, since I order online most of the time. However, things worked out so that I was able to visit not one, but two local bookstores -- Barnes & Noble, and Borders! So I decided to go ahead and post my very first "In My Mailbox" post.
I couldn't help but feel sad, though, when I stepped into Borders and saw all the "Going Out of Business" signs, along with the "50% - 70% off" signs... The store was crowded, and I went around, looking at all the messed-up shelves, trying very hard not to cry...but my eyes were moist the entire time. When I finally joined the long line, I had picked out five books. (I had already bought one at B&N.)
These are the books I brought home:
Trade Paperback, Grove Press, 2007
Maria V. Snyder
Trade Paperback, Mira, 2008
Tera Lyn Childs
Hardcover, Katherine Tegen Books,
Hardcover, Delacorte Press, 2010
Hardcover, Delacorte Press, 2011
(Marion Zimmer Bradley Avalon Series)
Diana L. Paxson
Hardcover, Viking, 2007
