In My Mailbox January 29, 2012

In My Mail Box is hosted by The Story Siren and is an opportunity to share the books I get each week. 

Once again my mail box was a little empty.  I only got two new books this week.  Both are from Amazon Vine.

Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas - Lisa is one of my favorite authors and I am looking forward to reading the first book in her new contemporary romance series.

Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik - I have followed the adventures of Captain Will Laurence and his fighting dragon Temeraire.  The alternate reality series is set during the Napoleonic Wars and this time they are off to South America.

I did buy myself a small treat.  I went to Staples in December and turned in a drawer full of printer cartridges.  When I got my Staples Rewards this month I had almost enough for the small 6" E Ink Kindle.  I purchased it yesterday.  It is my third eReader (Yes, I know no one needs that many).  It is very basic but I plan to use it only for items where Amazon has exclusive rights. I have already loaded all the free books that were sitting in my Kindle for Mac file on my computer.  I do not like reading on the computer so they had remained un-read.


  1. I don't like reading on my computer either so I'm sure you'll love your new Kindle! :)

    Here's my IMM for this week.

    Have a great weekend,

  2. I hope you enjoy your new Kindle, I haven't gotten one yet, but I hope I'll get one soon!Crucible of Gold looks interesting, I'm going to have to look it up.
    Happy rading and I hope you enjoy your Kindle!

  6. I just recently purchased a Kindle as well, and I loved it! I felt I needed something for all the Amazon exclusives as well, and it's definitely exceeded my expectations. I hope you like it!

  9. Last week I bought a Kindle for the same reason, 'for items that Amazon has exclusive rights.' On Jan. 2, 2012 I bought my first e-reader a Nookcolor. I downloaded a few free books on it, and a few I bought.

    Thanks for the visit to my Reading Corner today.
