Under My Christmas Tree 2011

Usually on Sunday's I would have my weekly In My Mailbox, hosted by The Story Siren.

However, as this Sunday is Christmas, this week it will be renamed to Under My Christmas Tree (cue sparkly lights and reindeer!).

Now not all of these lovelies landed under my tree of course, but I do consider them to be Christmas gifts.

Firstly, and most excitedly, I got me one of these babies from Santa (aka Mr Kat):

I already have two e-readers (Sony & Cybook), so a Kindle/Nook would have been kinda pointless - however the Samsung Galaxy Tab means I can finally read PDF's properly - hurray!

And, very surprisingly, I also got a book from Mr Kat - he's never brought me a book before:

Apocalypse of the Dead by Joe McKinney (I did already have this as an e-book but I've not read it yet).

Now onto the rest of the goodies!

Sent to me by lovely authors for review:

Tag by Simon Royale
Postmodern Medicine by Trevor Price

Purchased ebooks:

The Pearl Savage by Tamara Rose Blodgett
The Declaration by Gemma Malley
Among the Living by Timothy W. Long
Divergent by Veronica Roth (I know, I'm pretty much the only living person who hasn't yet read this!)

Purchased paperbooks:

Living with Evil by Cynthia Owen

So what did you get in your mailbox/under your Christmas tree? I hope it was something wonderful!

  2. First of all: Merry Christmas!

    Mr. Kat is a veeery nice person, it seems! :'D I really like your IMM. And you're not the only person - I read Divergent just this week. (it was really, really good!) I hope you'll start it soon, though. I wanted to bite myself when I noticed how good it actually was.. xD

    All my best,

    PS. How come no one has Networked Blogs? I want to follow you!

  3. Oh these all look so good!

    I got some lovely book goodness today - will do a post in a couple days - am already getting evils from the family for my tippy tapping :P

  4. OMG, a big yay on the Samsung Galaxy! I so want one, but since I'm a student currently between studies I went slightly cheaper. Not that I don't love my Archos 70, but Samsung is love! Woot. \o/ And, and, and... I see Divergent! I absolutely adored that one. Great IMM!

    Happy Holidays! My Christmas IMM!

  5. Sweet..love the Galaxy...Merry Christmas!
