In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme started by Kristi from The Story Siren where bloggers can share what books they've received and what they're planning on reviewing.

I got a bunch of books in my mailbox this week because I bought most of these books in preparation for the National Book Festival next month in Washington, DC.  I bought them all from Amazon and it was the absolute worst package I’ve ever gotten from Amazon.  More than half of the books I bought were damaged in some way.  I would send them back for replacements, but I doubt I’d get better copies of them next time, so I’ll just deal with these ones. I also won a couple more books in contests, they haven’t arrived yet, but I’ll mention them anyway.
