In My Mailbox: 7/24/11

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Gah! I haven’t done In My Mailbox in over a month. As you can imagine, I’ve had a ton of acquisitions since then! I decided to squirm my way out of formatting a massive post by recording my first vlog. It was…interesting. I think I look stoned, and I apologize in advance for the number of times I say “next up.” 😉

    I don’t normally watch the vlogs for IMM – not all the way. A lot of the participants have way different tastes than me. I was very interested by your list, though. I wanted to hear what you had to say. I want to read so much of what you have! I love the international flavor.

    Love the vlog! Your hair looks great 🙂 Fantastic list of books, I really enjoyed The Day Nina Simone Stopped Singing and Unnatural Selection. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on all of these – especially the nerdy ones 🙂 and ESPECIALLY America and the Pill!
