In My Mailbox 19

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren!

So I was on vacation for half the week, so I didn't get around to doing my IMM video. I did still manage to pick up a few books this week - they have bookstores in Iowa too.. imagine that :)

Anyways - without further ado, here is what I picked up this week:

I got Sweep Vol 2 by chance. You see, I had decided not to buy it yet - I figured that I had enough books that I haven't read yet. So, I purposely avoided the bookstore. Then, when I was at Marshall's picking up some boots (which I have to take back..) they had Sweep at the checkout counter. Here's the kicker - it was only $5.99. Six bucks for 3 books? I quickly decided that it was fate - I was meant to buy the book. Then, I was looking through amazon's black Friday deals and they had Proms Nights from Hell and Vacations from Hell on sale. I get free shipping from amazon for being a college student.. so of course I had to buy those too :)
1. Sweep Vol 2 - Cate Tiernan
3. Vacations from Hell - Various

I also got Don't Kill the Messenger from amazon - it was only a few dollars as well. Then, I bought the next Morganville Vampire book - Ghost Town. I have absolutely plowed through the series - I read the first 8 in less than a week. Oh, and I got the Frenzy from the library.
1. Don't Kill the Messenger (Don't Kill the Messenger #1) - Eileen Rendahl
2. Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires #9) - Rachel Caine
3. The Frenzy - Francesca Lia Block

Then, last but not least.. I bought a Nook :) I went out at midnight on Thursday and bought it at walmart. You see, they had them on sale for Black Friday at Best Buy for $99. But, if any of you have ever gone shopping on Black Friday - you probably know to avoid Best Buy at all costs. People are crazy there - they line up at like 4pm the day before. I absolutely refuse to go anywhere near a best buy. But, here is where the magic happens :) As you may or may not know, Walmart price matches for Black Friday. So.. I simply had to walk in at midnight (when Walmart's sale started) and go get myself a nook. They weren't on sale at Walmart, so there were plenty available. Plus, all of their electronics went on sale at 5am - so they weren't releasing any of there sale electronics until 5. But since the nook wasn't on sale there - I was able to get it at midnight. Plus, I could check out at the electronics counter, so I was literally in and out in 20 minutes. It was fabulous :) 

Did you guys know you can lend books through the nook? It is great - If anyone else has a nook and wants to swap sometime, let me know!

I had no idea you can lend books through a nook, I'll have to check that one out. What was it like shopping at midnight, I don't think I've ever been in a store that late. Oh and what's black friday?

Wow, great books! I absolutely love the Morganville Vampire series; just finished reading Ghost Town and LOVED it :) There is a bit of mind twisting that happens about halfway through the book that will drive you crazy, just warning you ;)

Haha, you sound so proud of all the sales you found! ;) (that rhymes...) I wasn't able to go Black Friday shopping =/ Congrats on your nook!

Congrats on the ereader! The more I see of them, the more I want one. I think I might get one in the next year or two. I hope you like it!

I have a Nook but now I want the Nook Color!

I was able to be in and out of Fry's Electronics in 20 minutes. It was liberating to be in and out that fast on Black Friday!
