Week in Review & IMM: The Happy Nook Edition!

IN MY MAILBOX: 02.05.12

In My Mailbox was created by Kristi at The Story Siren because:

"I get books to read and then ultimately share my thoughts about with my readers. As much as I want to, I can’t possibly read every book I receive. Yet, I still wanted a way to feature those books on the blog, even though it might not be in the form of a review. Problem solved! Every week I'd share the books I received that week... ones I'd bought, or gotten at the library, and ones that I'd receive to review on the blog. That way I could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on The Story Siren..."

I find the same thing happening at A Backwards Story. I'm so backed up on reviews atm... That's why I like these videos!

The Happy Nook Edition!


I can't find my camcorder this morning (and I was too tired to film last night after work), so we're just going to do a regular list today.  I don't have a lot of time to do fancy pictures or anything (or look for my cam any longer) since I have to get ready and leave for the train (I'm going to an epic 60-author signing at Books of Wonder for the end of NYC's Teen Author Festival Week, eep!  I'll tell you all about it, no worries!)
 
Everything this week was for my nook anyway, so here we go!
