In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren every Sunday. In My Mailbox is a weekly meme that lets everyone see what books you have received or bought that week.
This week is an easy one. I have been pretty good (so far) at spending less time in the book store, and buying fewer books. I don't know whether it's a good thing that I'm on a first name basis with the people at my local bookstore or not though... ;) Actually, they're all pretty nice. :)
Anyway, the books that I bought this week are:
1. Tales of the Otherworld - Kelley Armstrong
2. The Reckoning - Kelley Armstrong
I'm definitely getting my Kelley Armstrong fix this week. I have been waiting (impatiently) for these to come out, so I was quite happy that my local Coles had them. When I arrived at the store, a couple were at the cash register discussing said books. Once I finished perusing the shelves and went up to pay, we ended up having a lengthy discussion about books, e-readers, and Kelley Armstrong. It's definitely neat to meet fellow avid book lovers! The couple are switching over to the e-reader in a few months because they find that their shelves are overflowing and they have no more space for anymore books. I don't think I could ever give up my books because I love the smell and feel of a good book in my hands!
This brings me to my question. (Albeit I'm asking about it in a roundabout way.) Which do you prefer? Books or e-readers, and why?
Also, if you haven't already seen it, Estevan Vega is doing a blog tour right now in anticipation of the release of his book Arson, and he made a stop on my blog earlier this week. I currently have a contest running for Arson to help promote this wonderful author! Feel free to check out his post (it's a short story that you might only find here!) and enter the contest or leave some comment love for him! Thanks again for checking it out everyone!
That is what I received in my mailbox this week, what did you receive in yours?
