Then on Saturday I decided to go check out a used bookstore downtown that I had heard a lot of my professors talking about in lecture called Attic Books. Nothing could have prepared me for how amazing this bookstore was! It was three huge floors filled with some of the best books I have ever seen! The quality of these used books was impeccable, and there were a lot of recent publications available for sale! The third floor was completely dedicated to antique books, and I spent about an hour drooling over a first edition copy of Anne of Green Gables! I totally would have bought it if it hadn't been for the pricey $150.00 price tag! Instead, I was happy to snag a copy of The House of the Scorpion and Blood Promise. I read The House of the Scorpion back in high school and LOVED it so I was excited to add it to my collection. While I have yet to read the second and third book in the Vampire Academy series... I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to grab a hardcover copy of Blood Promise for a mere $5.00! So ya...I'm officially in love with Attic Books and will probably be visiting there at least once a month to see what new books they've added to their shelves!

I haven't done an In My Mailbox posting for a while now.... but this weekend was so exciting bookwise that I just had to share! First of all, I was lucky enough to get sent two books from Razorbill! Razorbill's new community website (which is officially being launched in January) has a book giveaway feature for Canadian members called "Get it first for free!" I put my name in for a copy of A Million Suns and Dust City and was so excited to find out that my name had been picked for both books! I've been dying to read A Million Suns since I finished Across the Universe, and Dust City sounds pretty exciting!
