In My Mailbox (10): Sunday 17 June 2012




Welcome to
In My Mailbox!!

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and Letterbox Love is a British take on the idea. If you want to know more, there is information under the Fun Things heading above, or you can click on the pictures at the top of this post to take you to the hosts’ blogs.

These posts are to tell you about the books I have acquired recently. I know most bloggers call all such posts “In My Mailbox”, however, as I’m English, my physical post comes through my letterbox and my electronic mail arrives in my mailbox (or my inbox…). So I have decided to use the following terms:

In My Letterbox (IML) for the physical books I aquire;
In My Mailbox (IMM) for the NetGalley books or ebooks sent to me for review by authors;
In My Inbox (IMI) for the free Kindle ebooks I compulsively download!


Here is a list of some of the books for which I’ve been approved on NetGalley.  I have downloaded all of these, the ones I haven’t listed aren’t available in kindle format and I haven’t yet installed Adobe Digital Editions.  I have to say, if that means I can only read them on a computer, rather than my kindle, I probably won’t read them.  However, since all the ones below are in kindle format, I shall be reading and reviewing them.
