In My Mailbox (36) + Introducing…!

This has been an exciting week for many reasons: one, I’ve picked up a new series (always exciting) and two, I’m launching a new forum for book bloggers.

First, the books.

    • to satisfy my inner dorkness
{recent reviews}
{upcoming reviews}
  • Stray – Rachel Vincent
SPECIAL THANKS to Ash @ Smash Attack Reads for highly recommending Stray by Rachel Vincent.  Unfortunately though, I have lost my once unbending faith in my precious public library system because they have the ENTIRE SERIES EXCEPT the second book!  THE ONE I NEED NEXT!  *epically sad sigh*  So now I don’t know quite what to do.  I don’t want to buy the books until I get farther in and know for sure that I really want to own them.  And the library doesn’t HAVE the second book.  (As in, it isn’t even in their system.  I wouldn’t freak if it was at another branch.  That’s what’s so wonderful about the inter-library loan system.)

What did you get in YOUR mailbox?
Have you ever noticed that when you visit a blog, you’re really only communicating with the blog host?  Even if there are a bunch of other comments, you kinda skim over them somewhat and give your response directly to the blog host.  It’s kind of awkward to talk to other people on someone else’s blog…

Well I wanted to rectify that.  I wanted a place where book bloggers could come and chill and discuss things and pick up new things for their blogs (like followers…) etc.  So I created a forum just for that purpose.
