Mailbox Monday

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

Pretty small load this week.  I didn't get anything in the mail.

Click titles for plot synopses.

Bought:

At a Friends of the Library sale (one of the smaller branches of the Metro Public Library).


Silas Marner--George Eliot


No Shame, No Fear--Ann Turnbull


The Plague--Albert Camus


Dinosaurus: The Complete Guide to Dinosaurs--Steve Parker

This is a large hardcover book that would have cost $50 retail...I got it for 2 bucks! Woot! My boys love dinosaurs.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. From Camus to dinosaurs - very eclectic list!

  2. I have yet to read Camus, though I have been meaning to for years. Can't wait to hear what you think of The Plague.

  3. I'm drooling over the dinosaur book. My boys would love something like that! I'll just have to see what I can find for them at the library book sale later this way (really just finding excuses to go to the book sale). :)

  4. Stephanie--I do have pretty eclectic taste! Keeps me hopping. =O)

    Ryan--I read The Stranger by Camus years ago and it stuck with me. Not really what it was about (it's been so long), but that it was well-written and I liked it. This one sounds really interesting!

    Alyce--The boys are thrilled with it! I couldn't believe what a find it was. Hope you have good luck when you go to your sale!

  7. I was feeling all down the past couple of weeks because I wasn't getting anything in the mail. Then I remembered that I haven't been asking for any books--I just can't until I get caught up. But I do miss those lovely packages!
