In My Mailbox (15)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at TheStorySiren to let bloggers showcase books they've got each week. 

Hi guys! After two weeks of no book-shopping, I finally gave in out of necessity. This week (April 22 - 29, 2012) I bought four books because I need them for my English courses as a soon-to-be English major. :D

The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr and E.B. White 
I've been told that this is a must for every English major. Although this book is not required for uni, I willingly bought it. ;) 
We'll be studying English literature this June. Yay! 
- Cocktail by Vince Licata and Ping Chong  
Totally not looking forward to this. It's required in my literature course though I don't see why this even qualifies as literature. Apparently this 73-page long book is a PLAY, and it looks like a bad one too. :(

Macmillan English Dictionary For Advanced Learners

I also bought my first English-English dictionary! Hooray! I'll be buying more when semester starts. I have my eyes set on Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary and Collins Cobuild. One at a time. Haha. I became quite obsessed with dictionaries too. They're kind of fascinating.
