  1. WOW! How did you carry all those home?! Theres like 50 of them! Lol

  2. Oh wow, you got so many books! Plus, the Queen’s Thief series in hardcover? Score! πŸ™‚ As if I’m not jealous enough that you have libraries, I’m now even more jealous because of library sales.

  3. I am sooo jealous!! I should have gone to my dad’s so I could have gone to this!!

  4. Great books! I love library sales. πŸ™‚

  5. I’m sooooo very jealous that you have The Lost Saint! The Dark Devine is a favorite of mine.


  6. The libraries near you have the best book sales! We just had a book sale at my library and we definitely didn’t get books like that…maybe people in your part on NY have better taste in books.

    I’m also jealous that you got the Queen’s Thief books in hardcover, with the original covers!

  7. Briana @ Bree's Books says

    That was some library sale! haha You got so many great books! I love Song of the Sparrow and The Host.
    And I can’t wait for Fixing Delilah!

  8. WOW, that’s a lot of books! Your gonna be busy for awhile! I can see you dragging a huge box of books out of the library…maybe down some steps and across the street lol. Have fun reading!!

    My IMM is here:

  9. So much good stuff! I can’t believe you listed all of those out.

    I’m curious to hear what you think of the Kristin Hannah books whenever you get to them. I almost bought them, but decided to hold out until the adult stuff gets cheaper, so we’ll see if there are more when I return.

    • Yeah that adult stuff is expensive. I really don’t think a trade paperback should be priced at the same as a hardback. That was pretty lame.

      I hope there are more when you go back πŸ™‚

  10. Woah, that’s a lot of books!

  11. oh my god those books make me drool! I wish we had a library same as yours!

  12. I love how much Tamora Pierce is in that pile! Enjoy your new books πŸ™‚

  13. wooooooow.

    I’m jealous of a lot of those, and a lot of those I also own to read. You are the library sale master.

  14. OMG! So many books^^

    I loved…

    Karlinha – Brazil

  15. Wow, that has to be the largest In My Mailbox haul I’ve ever seen! So many good books in there – Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles, the Perilous Gard and the Year of Secret Assignments in particular are awesome πŸ˜€

    • I have had larger hauls πŸ˜› BUT this is my largest in awhile.

      I was so fricken excited to find the Perilous Gard. I have been looking for that one for awhile now, but was never able to find it on bookmooch.

  16. Wow!! I’m like, super jealous!! Those books look great!! And there are so many of them!!

  17. Lots of great books, you will have plenty to read for a while! I hope you enjoy the Ann Rinaldi books, they are some of her older books which I have generally enjoyed more than her more recent books.

    • I’ve read Time Enough For Drums, which I was ambivalent about. I do enjoy good hist fic though and everyone always recommends Rinaldi, so at 75 cents a pop, I couldn’t say no.

      I am glad you enjoyed them, Rebecca!

  18. How much were all these (lie slightly if they cost you $2 in total). Wow what great stuff you got – Time Travellers Wife is fantastic and Suitable Boy.

    • 172…

      Which IMO is a great deal for all of those books.

      I really enjoyed Time Traveler’s Wife when I first read it, however, I hadn’t yet experienced romantic love when I read it, so maybe now, it will be a different experience.

  19. Wow, that’s a really REALLY huge haul. LOL.

    I saw you also have the first 3 books from Garth Nix’s Keys of the Kingdom series. I just finished reading the series not that long ago myself.

  20. That’s pretty much pure insanity and perhaps the most epic IMM ever! Enjoy all of your books πŸ™‚

  21. HOLY FRICKIN’ COW, April! πŸ˜€

  22. BLOODY JACK. *win*

  23. OMG APRIL! I SO need a booksale like this one *-* Congrats for the amazing new books!
