Mailbox Monday (late edition)

Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Last week was another great week for acquiring more books!

(Click titles for information on the books)


A Year of Pleasures--Elizabeth Berg (won from Ready When You Are, C.B.)

Book swag won from Ellz Readz--some cool Bree Despain The Dark Divine bookmarks and stickers.


These gems were purchased from the Second Saturday Book Sale, a monthly used book sale from The Friends of the Library.  Each hardcover was $2.00 and the paperback was $1.00.  What a steal!!!

The God of Spring--Arabella Edge (hardcover)

High Druid of Shannara: Straken--Terry Brooks (hardcover)

The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Morgawr--Terry Brooks (hardcover)

Mary Modern--Camille DeAngelis (hardcover)

Blood Noir--Laurell K. Hamilton (hardcover)

Trespass--Valerie Martin (hardcover)

The Sisters Mortland--Sally Beauman (hardcover)

Under the Greenwood Tree--Thomas Hardy (hardcover)

Mutiny on the Bounty--Charles Nordhoff & James Norman Hall (trade paperback)

So...what arrived in your mailbox over the past week?


  1. Ooh fun! Terry Brooks! I've really been wanting to start his Shanarra books - I even recently bought the first one but then accidentally left it in Louisiana at Christmastime. :-(

  2. I love library sales.! You picked up some good ones, some new to me. I'm told I should read Terry Brooks.

  3. Looks like some great books. Enjoy! I wish our library had sales.

  4. They sound wonderful!

    I loved "The Year of Pleasures"!

  5. Love your new books, especially the Terry Brooks. I'm slowly rebuying all of them. I have the origional series and now working on getting the heritage series.

  6. I like Elizabeth Berg. Nice Haul!

  7. You hit the jackpot! Enjoy!

    That is one cute kitty.

  8. LOLOL! Love that photo. Poor cat!

  9. oooh don't you just love good cheap second hand books, they are like finding treasure to me! thanks for following, i'm following you now too :-)

  10. Thanks to everyone for stopping by! I love the kitty pic too...found it on Google images. I feel sorry for him though. I could never leave Alis out in the cold like that. She's not allowed to go out, although she tries her hardest to get out...but if it's really cold or raining, she runs right back in!

    mummazappa--yes, I have to admit that I LOVE used books sales! Thanks for following!

  11. Looks like you have some good books there!

  12. Looks like a stack of wonderful adventures! I have to check out your Valerie Martin book -- she was once a professor of mine in New Orleans and her books that I've read are pretty good. (Property and Mary Reilly).


Thank you for your comments. I will try my best to respond, but will admit to failing quite often due to life and its busy-ness. Just know that your visiting and taking the time to comment mean so very much to me.
