In My Mailbox: Brand New Library Card Edition

I finally got around to getting a library card yesterday, or rather replacing one that I didn’t even know I had.  It’s a pretty small library, and it’s a bit outdated in what is available for children and young adults, but I’m still eager to look through the book stacks.  Soon, I hope to go to the fancy-schmancy library downtown. The downtown library is huge, and it’s in a lovely, old building.  I’m sure it will have a larger selection too since it’s the main library.   

The librarian was so excited when I asked her if I could check out e-books for my Nook.  She was disappointed that she didn’t have a brochure for me, but she told me I can bring my Nook into the library downtown, and they’ll show me exactly how to load up the books.

So, this is my very first In My Mailbox.  I don’t have a whole lot, but I’m still eager to share my loot and get busy reading it!

From the library:

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
  • Artimis Fowl: The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer

And actually in my mailbox (squee!):

  • Greyhound by Steffan Piper

My boyfriend wanted me to check out Fantastic Mr. Fox, so I’ve been reading it out loud so we can both enjoy it!
