In My Mailbox #16: Books All Over the House

There are currently books all over my house. I mean, there are usually books all over the house, but it seems much worse than the usual library books in three places, new review books scattered in the office and on the kitchen counter, and the overflow of books from my personal library. It seems like my couch has been replaced by books and my coffee table and my bed... it's getting ridiculous.

It's been a very long time (three months!) since I did an In My Mailbox post and I know there was some to-do in the blogosphere with The Story Siren, though I have no idea what it was or how it was resolved (if it was resolved). Despite that, I already have a series of IMM posts, so I'm just continuing it here whether I link up on Sunday or not.

I'm not even going to attempt a comprehensive listing of all the books that have crossed my doorstep in the last three months. Instead here are the books that I've received in the last three weeks, excluding e-books. That's a whole 'nother post all on its own.
