In My Mailbox #8

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Here's what was in my mailbox this week:

I only got one package in the mail this week and it came in the cutest pink mailer from Kelly at Stacked from a giveaway I won. Inside were

Ripley's Believe It Or Not: Seeing is Believing (Ripley Publishing, August 2009), which is going straight on my library's shelves. We don't have many of these types of titles and I know my kids are going to love it.

And How Beautiful the Ordinary: Twelve Stories of Identity (HarperTeen, October 2009), an ARC that Becky picked out for me. With stories by David Levithan, Jennifer Finney Boylan (have you read She's Not There: A Life in Two Genders? I loved it!), I'm sure this is one I'm gonna love.

Thanks, Becky!

(Oh, and I did buy some books at Anderson's last week, but they were never in my mailbox, so I'll include those with the post about YALitCon that is COMING SOON I PROMISE.)

Happy reading, everyone! What was in YOUR mailbox this week?
