In My Mailbox #29

Saturday, May 5, 2012 with 6 comments

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  It's a weekly meme where we all get to brag about the books and swag we got in the mail, for review, won in contests, etc.

So, I debated whether to continue with this meme in the future, in light of recent developments, but I enjoy doing it each week and comparing hauls with other bloggers and the discussions it leads to.  And it's not like we haven't all made mistakes.  I'm not condoning what went down, not by any means.  But I believe in forgiving and letting bygones be bygones. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" and all that.  I do think, however, that I will stop linking up on the host site while still giving credit where credit is due.  And I may search for a similar meme to use in the future, but for now, I will stick it out with this one.  If you have any suggestions or alternatives, though, I'd be more than happy to take them into account.

ANYWAY, here's my haul:
