IMM: My May + June in Books
I’ve been meaning to do an IMM post for weeks… more specifically my “May in Books” post. But May is long gone, and June almost is, too. So instead of keeping this on hold for next week (which is going to be INSANE since my research paper is in and it’s time for endless presentations and dissertations and lectures and what-not until my time is overrr!) I’m getting this in now! As always this is brought to you by Kristi (who got it from Alea)! =)

I just wanted to point out the formats so you could all see how generous people have been. It isn’t easy or cheap shipping out books to where I am, and I know I made a lot of people poorer just for the sake of my entertainment. So a HUGE collective thank you to everyone on this list for being so amazing!!!

A fantastic two months in books, don’t you think? Of course, now I’m severely behind on reading, not to mention poor and downtrodden and I need to find another source of income… but hey! I love every moment of it!
PS. I’m moving countries again soon… and I really need to get rid of some of the stuff on my bookshelf. Which means GIVEAWAYS!!! Keep checking back! =D
