In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is where I post the books I bought, borrow, won, or received this week. IMMB was started by Kristi of The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

This week I bought 4 books at Goodwill for 47 cents. Goodwill is a good place to get used books for a very cheap price!

The Neverending Story
by: Michael Ende
Small and insignificant, Bastian Balthazar Bux is nobody's idea of a hero, least of all his own. Through the pages of an old book, he discovers a mysterious world of enchantment - but a world that is falling into decay. The great task of making things well again falls on Bastian, and there follows a magically evocative story to fulfill your deepest longings.

A Walk to Remember
by: Nicolas Sparks

In 1958 Landon Carter is a shallow but well-meaning teenager who spends most of his time hanging out with his friends and trying hard to ignore the impending responsibilities of adulthood. Then Landon gets roped into acting the lead in the Christmas play opposite the most renowned goody two-shoes in town: Jamie Sullivan. Against his best intentions and the taunts of his buddies, Landon finds himself falling for Jamie and learning some central lessons in life.

Lovely Bones
by: Alice Sebold

When we first meet Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. As she looks down from that strange new place
she tells us, in the fresh and spirited voice of a fourteen-year-old, a tale that is both haunting and full of hope. Susie watches life continuing after her brutal death: her loved ones holding out hope she'll be found, her killer covering his tracks. As months pass without leads, she sees her family contorted by loss. With compassion, longing, and a growing understanding, she sees them face the worst -- then, in time, pass through grief and begin to mend.
