IMM (6)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Through reading many different book blogs, I discovered the wonder of NetGalley this week and I am smitten. I requested a bunch of eGalleys and downloaded a few to my iPod:

  1. What wonderful books to add to the classroom library especially The Egypt Game and Where the Red Fern Grows. I read Egypt Game at least once a year from 3rd grade til I graduated high school. Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. I agree, those are fantastic books to add to your classroom library. I adore the Little House on the Prairie series.

    And, Delirium! I'm jealous! I hope you like it. Happy reading!

  3. Awesome list for your classroom library. Wow.

  4. I have Delirium too and anything by Other Press is generally a good choice. :)

  5. Just finished Delirium, and I really enjoyed it! You'll have to wait to see the review closer to the release date though, sorry.

    I LOVED Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie, and the author is extremely nice. You got some good books from the sale.
