Two boxes of books - one that weighed 70lbs and one that weighed around 35 lbs shipped from NY on Thursday to TX, and it arrived Tuesday. We paid about $50 total. Guys, if anyone is going to BEA next year, please please go with USPS! Not only were they cheaper, but they were surprisingly speedy.
I'm really excited to get started reading, and several of these books will giveaways, so keep checking back to see when those start!

Wow, lots of great books! I especially want to read Crossed and Forever. That is awesome that you got a signed copy of The Throne of Fire. I still need to read that. I love Riordan's writing.

I hope you enjoy these though I imagine it will take a while to get through them :) I look forward to your reviews!
