Mailbox Monday for September 7th, 2009


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by The Printed Page. This is my first week participating so we will see how it goes.

I received Dark Time by Dakota Banks from the publicist. This is one of few urban fantasy books that I've wanted to read that I hadn't gotten around to yet so I was very thankful for it.

I received Pike Point by Greg Suhonen from the author. I'm excited about this one since it takes place in the region of MN that I'm from.

Then I went to the Friends of the Library bookstore and picked up 7 donated books (not old library books) for $5.50. I got the trade paperbacks for 50 cents a piece and the hardbacks for a dollar a piece. All of them were in great condition and look brand new.

Trade paperback of Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

Trade paperback of The Eight by Katherine Neville

Wow, lots of reading for you to do! I loved The Secret History

Zia said...

Anansi Boys is on my TBR list at some point. I love his writing!

Cathy said...

I really enjoyed The Eight and The Secret History. Hope you do, too!

Melissa said...

Wow Ryan, you are really adding to the stack of books there. Are you getting any sleep lately? LOL! It is great to see a fellow friend with the same addiction, buying books non-stop. (Only thing is I can't keep up with the books I buy.)

I love library sales. The only one that I have read and LOVED is The Secret History.

Melissa said...

Ryan, just wanted to stop by to let you know I have an award waiting for you...

Sheila, they are great books!

Deb, it's a great book. It's been years since I've read it so I'm looking forward to the revisit.

Zia, I haven't read this one yet. I've read American Gods so I'm looking forward to it.

Cathy, The Eight is one of my favorite books ever and The Secret History is one I'm looking forward to revisiting.

Melissa, it's going to take a while to get through them but I'm up for the challenge.

Michelle, I try to visit twice a month. I almost didn't go the day I went and I'm so happy I did.

Wendi, thanks for the welcome. Terry Brooks is one of my favorite authors so when I find cheap hardcovers I snatch them up.
