In My Mailbox (8) / Stacking the Shelves (2)

I forgot to say something about these books in my video. Barnes and Noble had buy 2, get one free sale going, so I went ahead and bought several books. I also got a (lightly) used copy of The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath on Amazon. I’ve been eyeing that book for a while. I haven’t made much of a dent in it so far, but I like it.

1. The Waste Land and Other Poems by T.S. Eliot

3. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carrol
4. The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson
5. The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
6. Selected Stories of O. Henry
7. The Essential Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
8. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
9. The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

I’ll link all these books to Goodreads eventually.

  1. And I thought my count of 6 books brought was a bit too much! Deals really suck you in though don’t they?! It looks like you got some great books, some of which I am hoping to get myself… Eventually.

    1. Absolutely! I was aware it was crazy for me to buy so many while I was doing it, but they were so cheap. I must be an addict. Haha.

      Hopefully you can get some of the books you want! (:

    1. They certainly do. I was super excited they were at the library when I went. I had put Just One Day on hold before it released and didn’t think it would come to me so soon.

    1. Why, thank you! I’m pretty excited to read more by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. I loved Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, so I’m hoping I’ll like those too. (:
