In My Mailbox (August 14, 2011)

The weekly In My Mailbox post is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is fun to see what everyone else gets in their mailboxes, shopping bags, and library visits. Click on the link to The Story Siren's site to see the rules and join in the fun.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
Finally, a quiet week! This is the sort of week I have been hoping for since summer began. I only added two books this one - one print and one for my Kindle.
I added The Outback Stars by Sandra McDonald to my stack after seeing it on a site that talked about science fiction romances and compared it to books by Lois McMaster Bujold. Since I am a huge fan of LMB, I had to give this author a try.

I also chose Pompeii: City on Fire by T. L. Higley when I saw that it was free for my Kindle. I am fascinated with Pompeii and have read a number of books about it. As a child and young adult, I wanted to be an archaeologist. I look forward to reading this story set there. 

That was my mailbox. What did you get in yours?
