In My Mailbox: UPDATE

So here's the deal: It's hard to do posts like this when I'm at school because most books I get go to my house. And then I don't see them until Thanksgiving or Christmas when I haul an ungodly amount of books back to school to start the semester. HOWEVER:
I have been exploring this week, and on Sunday, I drove to Newburgh, IN. (I'm in Evansville going to school, for those of you that don't know) Newburgh is this cute little historic town on the Ohio river (nothing too new, I'm from Louisville, so no biggie) but there's this adorable little used book store called The Book Nook. So I decided I was going to go explore a bit on my own. So I got stuff there. On the way back, I stopped at Barnes & Noble with a gift card I got from my baby brother (who is in COLLEGE this year! eeeshk!), where I acquired J.K. Rowling's new book. I am VERY excited to read it. Then, yesterday, a used book sale happened at school. Resulting in this. NINETEEN BOOKS. I am a very happy, albeit very poor, girl. Let me recap:

In the mail for review/from PaperBackSwap:
1. Girl Reading by Kate Ward
2. Grace Grows by Shelle Summers
3. Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory by Mickey Rapkin

From Barnes & Noble:
4. The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley
5. The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
6. The Sherlockian by Graham Moore

From the Book Nook:
7. Plunder of the Sun by David Dodge
8. Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan
9. Princess Vic by James Brough
10. Persuasion by Jane Austen

From the book sale:
11. The Yellow Room by Mary Roberts Rinehart
12. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
13. Girl With Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace
14. A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
15. Blue Shoe by Anne Lamott
16. Coiled in the Heart by Scott Elliott
17. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
18. Obedience by Will Lavender
19. The Impressionist by Hari Kunzru

That's SO MANY books! Did I mention a few months ago I also got The Age of Miracles in the mail? I am so lucky! Anyway, trying to keep up on reading all of these on top of my literature classes. Slowly plowing my way through Uncle Tom's Cabin.
