Mailbox Monday for 12/28/2009


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


From Mountains of Ice by Lorina Stephens was received for review by the Member Giveaway program on Library Thing.


I bought The Turret by Margery Sharp from The Friends of the Library Book Store in hardcover for $1. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, this is the third book in the series starring Miss Bianca of The Rescuers fame.


I got The Big Four by Agatha Christie in paperback for Christmas.


I also got Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen in paperback for Christmas. I owe Deb at Bookmagic a big thank you for bringing this series to my attention.


I received the DVD of V: The Complete Series for Christmas as well. Now I just need to get the the miniseries of V and V: The Final Conflict.

Love the cover of From Mountaians of Ice. I never saw the original V but it's on my Netflix list to get sent out to me.

Oh The Big Four. That is one of my favorite Agatha Christies! I've got to push myself a bit more and try and finish the Christies in 2010.

Wow!! A new header! I love changes. Bet you couldn't guess...since I'm always tweaking my blogs.

These books sound good.

I really need to get out the Agatha Christies!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

You got some good ones for Christmas especially the V series. I loved that one as a kid. Freaked me out but I loved it!

Hi, Ryan! Wow, what amazing gifts you've received this Christmas!

Great haul! That first one looks good. I won another from LibraryThing as well, but haven't received it yet...I think it's called "The Red Door".

It's great that you got books for Christmas...I didn't get any as gifts except for from my Secret Santa.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Looks like you got great gifts for Christmas this year! I remember liking the original V series, but haven't watched the remake yet. Enjoy all of your goodies!

Like the new blog design! Is the map in the header a specific place close to your heart, or did you just like the design?

I agree- your blog's new look is gorgeous!

I just saw Royal Spyness as a free book at my work today as a matter of fact. Should I snag it?

Nice haul! Happy reading (and Happy New Year)!
