In My Mailbox - Uhm, alright ...

... I realize that it's starting to look a bit strange with all those IMM posts despite my book buying ban, but if you look closely you'll see that the books I did receive were all hoarded fair and square!

Won
Blood And Other Cravings (Ellen Datlow)

For Review
Partials (Dan Wells)
from NetGalley

Thanks to The Story Siren for hosting the IMM meme!

  1. I am not saying anything! Book buying ban isn't enough for you! You need a BOOK BAN period! :)

  2. Haha I can just imagine you scouring sites to get books without breaking your ban. I agree with Rikki, you need a book ban! ;)

    1. Alright, fine, just conspire against me, you two! A complete book ban would be just CRUEL!!!

    2. Thanks, Ellie! She does, doesn't she? She pledges not to buy books, and then she enters every competition out there in order to bypass her "ban"...:)

    3. And no one applauds the fact that I'm no longer hoarding free eBooks! Or how I've seriously cut down on requesting books for review! Cut me some slack, will ya?

  4. You need to have a talk with your mailman. Tell him if he sees a book coming to your address, he should not deliver it. :) Says the woman who couldn't adhere to a ban of any kind. :)

    1. My mailman will be fat by the time my ban is over. Sure, he still brings a book every once in a while (small enough to fit into the mailbox), but NO huge boxes of ordered books (which need to be dragged up several flights of stairs)!!

  5. Birgit, I'M ON YOUR SIDE!!! Winnings DO NOT COUNT! :))) Don't listen to all these evil people. I think you are doing marvelously well, and I follow your example and almost never download freebies of the net these days unless they are already on my wishlist :) Hope All That Bleeds is good, I've heard good things about it.
