In My Mailbox: I survived Black Friday

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren, in which we post about the books you received (bought, stole, borrowed, were given, etc).

I survived Black Friday by NOT GOING SHOPPING!  HAHA!  I hate crowds, mainly because people start acting horribly mean and stupid and it really brings my mood down (and makes me want to go all "punchy" on someone's face).  I bought all that I needed online---where most stores (like Target) have the exact same deals!   

*update* I did go to Target on Black Friday, but only because I couldn't order it online, and then the item was sold out by 12:20!  Never again...

Anyway, this week, I got....

*an ARC of Ash Mistry & The Savage Palace (Ash Mistry Chronicles #1) by Sarwat Chadda...Mr. Chadda was giving away a copy to one of his twitter followers and I was the lucky winner!  And can I just say how super stoked I am to read this book---ya'll know how much I LOVED his Billi SanGreal series!

*I also bought a bunch of books to give to my students as Christmas presents at a local thrift store---I think I paid like $10 for 15 books.  My favorite is a cloth book of Christmas songs---I'm keeping that one for myself :)

What was in your mailbox?
