In My Mailbox #38

Once again, I've gotta play catch up! At some point I'm going to start doing vlogs, but first I need to get a camera. I've been thinking about getting a flip cam, but I was curious of what other people have. I know a lot of people just use what's on their computer, so other than a webcam, does anyone have suggestions?



















Review:
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers (Amazon | Goodreads)
Firelight by Sophie Jordan (Amazon | Goodreads)
Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting (Amazon | Goodreads)
Wither by Lauren Destefano (Amazon | Goodreads)
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain (Amazon | Goodreads)

Library:
Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler (Amazon | Goodreads)


That's it for me! What did you guys get this week? Make sure to leave a comment so I can go drool over your mailbox!

Also I wanted to point out this post I did the other day. My friends' 8-year-old daughter, Macy, has been battling a form of cancer called ALL Leukemia for two years. She is such a sweet little girl who has been put through something no child should ever have to go through.

Her parents are absolutely buried in medical bills. I know it's the holidays and I know money is tight due to the economy, but NO PARENT should have to worry how they're going to afford to keep their child alive because their insurance will not cover a lot of the cost. So please, if you can spare even two dollars, swing by this page and leave a donation. It would be very appreciated!

Great books this week! I hope you enjoy them.

Regarding the camera question, I know a lot of people use flip cams. I've never personally tried one, but they do make very good quality videos and they don't make the "whirring" noise that computer webcams seem to make.

We use FLIP (the HD mino 2hour). We love it, it's portable, light weight and so easy to use. Uploading is a snap.

Insurance and medical bills, such a headache...above all I hope the little girl gets better soon and grows up to kick insurance in the *you know what*
