In My Mailbox 25: Books I Got While On Vacation

 In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren, where bloggers post about the books they've purchased, gotten in the mail, borrowed, been given or otherwise gotten their grubby little hands on.

As you know, the hubs and I have been on vacation since the end of July.  We drove cross-country, visiting Mt. Rushmore, Montana, Idaho, Seattle, Astoria Oregon, California, The Grand Canyon, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Denver.  While gone, we had the opportunity to visit three Borders and stock up.  My husband is getting ready to start nursing school, so he used this opportunity to pick up a lot of medical books.

Here are pictures of our haul (I'll post titles and authors at the end):

I got the best text from my sister, "You got a package.  I think its from one of your book companies.  Not sure what it is though."  I told her to open it; it wasn't books, but the new cover of Delirium!
