In My Mailbox (24)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.  The books you share do not have to be ones you actually received in the mail.  They can be ones you bought at the book store, checked out at the library, or downloaded to your e-reader.  The idea is just to share what's on your TBR pile for the upcoming week.

I got a great haul of books this week at my library's used book store. Most of them are for my classroom library, but some of them are just for me. 

Claiming Georgia Tate by Gigi Amateau
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Grimm's Fairy Tales
Pandora Gets Jealous by Carolyn Hennesy
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Ranger's Apprentice 1: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan
Ida B by Katherine Hannigan
Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan
Closed for the Season by Mary Downing Hahn
Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn
Remnants 1: The Mayflower Project by K.A. Applegate
Shooting the Moon by Frances O'Roark Dowell
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

This set of books from the used bookstore deserves its own picture:
How lucky am I that I scored the last four books of the Harry Potter series in one trip to the used book store?  And even better is that I already have the first three.  I just needed the last four. It's like they were waiting for me.

E-book purchase:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This e-book is a GREAT deal right now at only $5!  I saw it on B&N and had to snag it for my classroom set of Nooks since I have a really hard time keeping this book on my bookshelf.  Now I can have at least 5 kids reading it at once. 

Library Loot:
Decoded by Jay-Z

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly (audio book)

The Loud Book! by Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Renata Liwska
The Quiet Book was one of the best picture books of 2010.  I'm looking forward to reading this follow up!

Press Here by Herve Tullet
