In My Mailbox (3)

I didn't actually think I would be participating in The Story Siren's In My Mailbox this week. And then I chanced upon a sale at my local Borders. I would up picking up 2 books, both books that I've been wanting to read and will eventually buy anyways, but both were on sale 75% off for only $4. But once I got to the register they wound up being buy 1 get 1 free. So each book wound up costing only around $2. Quite a steal if you ask me. Now onto the books!

It Sucked and then I Cried by Heather B. Armstrong
Another blogger book I've been meaning to be. Once again I've read the archives to Heather's blog (dooce.com), so I know what to expect. Still I'm looking forward to rereading her story this time in book form.

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
I loved The Time Traveler's Wife, and while I've heard her follow up isn't as good it doesn't mean I'm not going to give it a chance. I'm not entirely sure what the book is about, but again at with such a good deal on owning the book I more than willing to find out.

What's in your mailbox this week? Did you happen to stumble on any good deals as well?

    I have had Her Fearful Symmetry since it came out and it's.... sat on my shelf. :/ I'm terrible at buying too many books and not getting to them!

  7. These look good. I definitely want to read Her Fearful Symmetry. I liked The Time Traveler's Wife, and I like Niffenegger's writing, so I think I'll like this book too.
