Mailbox Monday for September 14th, 2009


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

I won The Virgins Daughters by Jeane Westin from Jen at Devourer of Books.

I won Zombie Haiku by Ryan Mecum from Velvet at VVB32 Reads.

I received Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd from Beth at Beth's Book Review Blog.

I received Murder in the Magick Club by Byron Lorrier by the author for review.

I visited the Friends of the Library store in our main library during the week but I only bought two books this time.

I got the trade paperback of The List by Robert Whitlow for $.50

I got a bookclub hardcover of The Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien for $1

I am totally coveting your copy of The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein!!! I requested a review copy, and I've got my fingers crossed. I can't wait to see what you think of it!

I think T'm getting Murder in the Magick Club as an ARC too. Can't wait to check it out. Looks like you got great deals on the books you purchased, too! Happy reading :-)

Lezlie, I am so looking forward to it. I'm reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley right now so this will be a good tie in for it.

Jackie, The cover of the book is so dark. I have to keep getting really close to it just to read the title. It sounds like a good book so I'll see in a few days.

Hey, you got The Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien for a dollar and you didn't get me a copy? LOL! Really though, I loved that book! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and I would love to know what you thought when you're all finished.

Murder in the Magick Club- I got an email from him and should be getting his book sometime soon, too. I hope you enjoy it!

Looks as though you have some good books there, happy reading!

Krista, thanks and I will let you know when I get a chance to read it.

Nice list! I am most envious of your copy of zombie haiku...but I will survive. :-) Well, that and I discovered a friend has it, and would be willing to lend it to me. Happy Monday!

Wow Ryan, Congrats on your spoils. Seems as you have been on a winning spree. Two winnings!! That is great.

Just curious, How many books are you able to get through in a week? I have such a hard time getting through one. lol.

Sounds like you have another wonderful list to work on.

Ryan G said...

Celia, I just found out he has a second book called Vampire Haiku...I have to get it.

Michelle, you are more than welcome too. Chuck is awesome!

Melissa, I never seem to have enough time. My TBR list is growing by leaps and bounds. I will probably read 3-4 books this week though.
