It's a chance to show everyone all the new books you've gotten (through review, purchased, gifted, etc.) over the past week (or several).
I really wanted to do a video log, but I don't know how to go about doing that and haven't had time to really look in to it. So I'm just going to do it the old fashioned way. If you do vlog's I would love any suggestions you might have as far as where to start! The easier the better. :)
It's been a little over a month since my last IMM post and I've gotten a LOT of books since then. This is the BIGGEST IMM I've ever done. And the reason for that is the Green Valley Book Fair!! The book fair is located in Mt. Crawford, Virginia. It's a massive warehouse filled with all genres of cheap books. The book fair is held for 2 weeks at a time several times a year. And man is it a steal. The young adult section in particular is AWESOME!! I ended up bringing home 50 books. Yes you read that right. 50. ALL. ON. SALE. I think the most I paid for a book was about 6 dollars, but most of them were in the 2-4 dollar range. I couldn't help it. So many good titles too tempting to resist! I try to go at least twice a year.
If you live anywhere near this book fair and love books as much as I do, I highly recommend you go. It's actually a 2 hour drive from where I live, but well worth it!
Here's the link to their website: Green Valley Book Fair
Now! On to the books!
I'm actually going to start with books I've gotten for my Kindle:
