In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It is an opportunity to share any books I have received this week in my mailbox, on my nook or in my hands.
This week I got one review book, one book I won via Twitter, one book from Paperback Swap, one signed book from a great friend…and one book I still can’t figure out why I received it.
|The book won via Twitter|
|Top book – Book tour. Bottom book – NO IDEA!|
And on to the book I was most excited to receive this week – Looking for Alaska by John Green.
|I also got Truman from PBS (HUGE book for when I hit him in the Presidential Challenge)|
Now, this might seem like a normal book to get excited about – and it truly is (hello, JG!) but what makes this book extra, EXTRA special is that my friend Smash loves me. So…when John Green was doing a speaking/signing in her local she offered a personalized signed copy of any of his books for one of the peeps in our online book club. I happened to be the winner! Woot!
Smash said that she was near the front of the signing line which enabled her to get a personalized copy – after the first few he totally said he couldn’t do anymore extras…I mean, the man just signed his name on The Fault in Our Stars like 150,000 times so who can really blame him.
So…behold my beautiful personalized JG novel:
|I am SUCH a sucker for personalized books.|
