In My Mailbox (80)--the John Green edition!

In My Mailbox is an Internet meme hosted by The Story Siren to share new books received, purchased, or borrowed.

So here's what I got this week!

I entered one of the Authors for Henryville auctions to help raise money to rebuild school libraries in Henryville, Indiana. The town and libraries were devastated as a result of tornados in the beginning of March. So of course I wanted to help out, and when I saw that John Green was offering a set of four books, signed and personalized, I had to enter. I wasn't the highest bidder, but! John graciously offered TWO book sets--and yes, I was the second highest bidder! John's awesome assistant, Danica, got all my deets and on Monday the package was on my doorstep--with a bonus book! You guys, I now own a COLLECTION of personalized John Green novels!

Sure, everyone has a signed copy of TFIOS, but how many people have PERSONALIZED copies??? 

I think I'm most excited for Will Grayson, Will Grayson, wanna know why? Because I'm going to the NYC Teen Author Carnival TODAY and I'm going to meet David Levithan. AND HAVE HIM SIGN THIS BOOK TOO! *swoons* 

Borrowed from the library:
  • Black and White by Paul Volponi (to book talk at juvenile detention)
  • The Difference Between You and Me by Madeline George
  • True Blue by Deborah Ellis
  • FDR's Alphabet Soup by Tonya Bolden (nonfic, for possible inclusion on the high school's summer reading list)
  • Stay Close by Harlan Cobe (adult fict)
What did you get?
Enjoy your reading!
