In My Mailbox: 25 April 2010

Mailbox This was my week for receiving RABCK (Random Acts of BookCrossing Kindness) books. I received three packages of books in the mail this week from bookswappers, and two of the boxes had bonus books as well as the owed swap books.

The first package—a really large one, too—was from Appaloosatb. She sent 9 swap books and 3 RABCK books. Her box contained the first five books in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time saga: The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn, The Shadow Rising, and The Fires of Heaven. I had selected the first two books from the SFF VBB at BookObsessed and she threw in the next three “just because”. Next was the second book in Kim Harrison's paranormal series starring Rachel Morgan: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, also selected from the SFF VBB. The rest of the box contained six books I had picked from the Teen VBB at BookObsessed: The Ice Dragon by George R R Martin, The Language of Goldfish by Zibby Oneal, The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall, Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley, The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke, and Peter and the Shadow Thieves by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson.

Loveamystery sent the second package. She was sending Defending Angels by Mary Stanton, which I had selected from the 1st Page VBB that is being run over at BookCrossing. So, she included two RABCK books in the same envelope. First was Angel's Advocate, the sequel to Defending Angels and the second was Revenge of the Barbeque Queens by Lou Jane Temple. I'm looking forward to reading these—but I've passed them to my mother-in-law to read first, since my owed TBR stack is still pretty high.

Friday morning, my hubby brought one more package in from the Post Office. This one was from MaplesFlowers and was sent to me for the Paranormal Devils Exchange Group. MaplesFlowers sent me Fanged & Fabulous, second in Michelle Rowen's “Immortality Bites” series. The first book was very very funny and I'd been hoping to get some of the others in the series. I have to admit that I do like this series—in spite of the fact that I hate the covers!

Just gaze at the wonderful books I received this week:

Wheel of Time #1: The Eye of the World Wheel of Time #2: The Great Hunt Wheel of Time #3: The Dragon Reborn Wheel of Time #4: The Shadow Rising Wheel of Time #5: The Fires of Heaven The Hollows #2: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead The Language of Goldfish The Ice Dragon The Penderwicks Dragonhaven The Thief Lord Revenge of the Barbecue Queens Peter and the Shadow Thieves Defending Angels Angel's Advocate Fanged and Fabulous
