In My Mailbox 4

Hi, y'all. Thought I'd swing by to do a quick post for "In My Mailbox," a weekly event of sorts hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren about what new books came in the mail (or library or whatever) this week.

Well, a big ole thank you to Tara at Hobbitsies for sending me Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz and some Wicked Lovely swag. Tara, you are the best!

And, to carry on what apparently was "books with snowy covers week," I FINALLY got Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and Levithan from the library. Hurray!

I also got a book from NetGalley...but they no longer allow you to do downloads to your Kindle, so I am a little disgruntled. Has anyone had any luck reading these on their computers? It seems to me that would be hard on the eyes. Here's hoping this is fixed soon!

PS: I gave the site a little "refresher" this weekend! Lookin' spiffy, if I say so myself.

  2. I really, really hope they fix the Kindle problem soon. I got approved for some galleys too that I can't wait to read, but I have to. And I haven't tried reading whole books on my computer before, just fanfiction when I used to read it a lot, it's possible, just not as easy, haha.

  4. I agree about the Kindle thing...I bought a Kindle the NIGHT BEFORE I got the email. :( Very depressing...

    Anywhoo...That swag is super pretty! And your books fit right in with the season. :)

  6. Oh! The site looks great Anna.

    I can't read on my computer, so I'm pretty bummed about the no Kindle option too.

    I've read some mixed reviews for Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. I wonder what you will think of it.

    Hope you enjoy. :D

  7. I use netgalley also, but I don't have a kindle yet so I'm not sure about the whole situation. I do know that after awhile of reading on your computer it does hurt your eyes, but I do it anyways.

    I recently just got dash and lily's too because I heard it was funny.

    Hope you enjoy.

  8. Cool mailbox! I've read Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, and I thought it was pretty good. As for NetGalley, I never have a problem reading on the computer, but then again I'll do anything to get my hands on a book. Anyway, hope you enjoy your books! :)
