In My Mailbox (Just Received) 3/28/11

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren.

The idea behind IMM was not only to put new books on your radar but to also encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of my mailbox & books bought.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.
Last week I received three books in the mail including:
 2nd Earth by Edward and Eunice Vought - a science fiction book about two Navy Seals who find themselves in a parallel world. Read Goodreads comments.
Quest for the Nail Prints by Don Furr - I read this book as an ebook and reviewed it here.  The author sent me a signed copy upon publication.  There is a neat effect in the design of this book, a nail hole throughout.  Now available for sale at Amazon.com.
Quip Factory by Caleb Spalding Atwood - could be an interesting tool for writing.  Read Goodreads comments.

From a nearby second-hand bookstore, Never Without a Book, I purchased with birthday money from my mom (thanks Mom!!!  XOXO) the following:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - this is an upcoming bookclub read
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - April's bookclub read (this is a graphic novel so I still want to find the original in paperback)
The Original Illustrated Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle - includes several short stories, previously published in The Strand plus the entire book of The Hounds of Baskerville (for my vintage mystery challenge)
Sticks and Scones by Diane Mott Davidson - a cozy culinary mystery
The Town Cried Murder by Leslie Ford - (for my vintage mystery challenge)

 And for my birthday, from a dear friend, a copy of...
Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda.  I know!  She's a good friend!!!  I promised her she could read it after me as we both have been "dying" to read this much touted novel.  It's great to have a friend with similar tastes in books!
What's in your mailbox this week?  Did you purchase anything that you are "dying" to read?  Any new library books?  Share in your comments below or leave a link to your post for In My Mailbox.  I love to see what everyone is reading!!!   Remember to link up with The Story Siren too!
