Current Giveaway on Alison Can Read
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.
I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.
The Season by Sarah MacLean
*The awesome Sacramento library system loans Nooks!!! I have one checked out for 3 weeks. It comes pre-loaded with about 50 books on it.
Here are the two that I plan to read:

WHAT?! Your library rents out Nooks? That's awesome! Love to hear what you think of In the Garden of Beasts... something I've been interested in for awhile.ReplyDelete

Your library lends Nooks? :O *drops dead* What a great opportunity! I wish we had things like that over here.ReplyDelete
And great selection, The Greater Journey sounds very good!
Here's my IMM for this week.
Happy reading a have a nice weekend,
wow that's insane, they lend nooks! I suppose thats good for people who can't afford them and for others that want to give it a go before committing to buy! I hope that you have fun with it! I love my Kindle!ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed The Season! I hope that you do too!

That is so cool that they lend out Nooks! Seriously! I wish library's in Holland were that cool!ReplyDelete
I'm so wanting to read the Season, I have loved the author's adult romance series! Hope you enjoy!
I've heard about libraries loaning out e-readers. I am glad you were able to check one out. Do you think you'll be buying a Nook in the future? I like being able to download e-books from my library (I have a Kindle so that is a new feature for us but Nook users have been able to do that for awhile).ReplyDelete
I have been wanting to read In the Garden of Beasts. One of my coworkers read it and really liked it. I did read The Season and thought it was pretty good. She should write more YA but she is probably busy with her romance novels for adults (which I also want to try). Have fun with the Nook and I hope you enjoy the e-books you selected.
You've got quite a mix this week!ReplyDelete
I think librarys lending nooks it a fantastic idea! I hope you enjoy it :)ReplyDelete
Haven't heard of those, but hope you enjoy them all!!ReplyDelete
Here's my IMM
Have a GREAT day!

I think that's so awesome that it loans out nooks! Wow! =)ReplyDelete
Hope you find some good books on there.
Goodness, my library system is lending Kindles but only for 1 week. It's to give the patrons a chance to try out the ereaders. :) I keep seeing The Season at Half-Price Books, so I'm curious about it. I hope you enjoy reading all 3 of your books and have fun with the nook.ReplyDelete
The Season looks like the kind of Historical Fiction I love. Great Haul! Hope you enjoy them all! <3ReplyDelete
Nice! Library lends Nooks! I had no idea. Geez. The Season looks like a pretty cool book. I haven't heard of any of these haha. :)ReplyDelete
P.S. I've also got a new giveaway on my blog for Remembrance if you want to enter.
I'm totally jealous that your library loans out Nooks. I don't think my library does that. Well I haven't seen or heard any of the books in your IMM so I can't offer an opinion but I can't wait to see your review of those books so I can see if I want to read them too :)ReplyDelete

I hadn't heard about libraries lending out e-readers! That's amazing; what a great way for people to try them out to see if they like it before spending all that money!ReplyDelete
The Season looks really interesting. I heard a bit about libraries loaning e-readers. I hope enjoy reading on it. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I think it's super cool that you let you check out Nooks!ReplyDelete
The Season was a pretty fun book. I can't believe your library loans nooks! The academic library where I work has nook colors and kindles, but the loan period is only a week. Can you put books on the nook yourself, or do you have to read what is pre-loaded?ReplyDelete
That's so cool that they loan Nooks! I just read Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and from what I've heard, In the Garden of Beasts is better. I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
They actually loan out nooks? That's such a great idea! I covet my Kindle like nobody's business, I would sleep with it under my pillow if it didn't need to charge. Love that thing:)ReplyDelete
The Season was quite Jane Austen-y, but good. My library lends out Nook books too.ReplyDelete
They loan Nooks!! How cool is that!!!??ReplyDelete

The Season looks awesome. I love historical fiction and want to see if these tough girls turn out to be ladies. The cover sure makes it look like they do.ReplyDelete
Awesome about your library lending Nooks! Ours discussed it as a possibility, I hope they do. It'd be a great way to introduce people to the new technology, especially those that are sight-impaired!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my IMM! Have a great week. :) Enjoy playing with the Nook!
I love the other McCullogh & Larson books I've read. I need to pick these up too.ReplyDelete

They loan Nooks?! That is too cool! I have one, but still! Fab mailbox, Alison, hope you're well!ReplyDelete
Loaning nooks, that's risky bussiness. I hope you enjoy. I hope you're settling in well in your new state.ReplyDelete
Wow! Your library is definitely awesome! I'm still waiting for mine to get around to lending ebooks ;)ReplyDelete
Happy reading! :D
That is so frickin cool that your library lends not only ebooks, but actual nooks! Way to support the ebook revolution, Sacramento!ReplyDelete
Way cool that you could rent a Nook!! I wish I could have done that before I bought one. (Not that I regret buying it... but it would have made my choice easier...)ReplyDelete
The Season looks like a good one!!
I hope you enjoy The Season--I thought it was lots of fun. :)ReplyDelete
Wow, that's a cool library! And awesome. I'd be happy if ours just had better English books. ;) Lol. Great IMM for you! Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy the books you got! :) That's so cool that they loan out Nooks!ReplyDelete
How awesome to be able to loan a nook from the library with preloaded books! Sweet! I have a 1st Edition nook that I love, and I can't imagine not having one. I REALLY REALLY want to read Garden of Beasts too, it's been on my "MUST READ" for quite awhile not, esp after I loved The Devil in the White City so much!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy all your books AND your nook!

How awesome is it that your library loans out Nooks! The Season looks like a book that I would really enjoy. I am loving reading about Regency era London right now so I think it would be perfect!ReplyDelete
