Mailbox Monday for 03/29/2010


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

Now I have already broke my book buying ban, I'm such a bad boy.


I bought A Royal Pain by Rhys Bowen from Barnes & Noble


I won Black Hills by Dan Simmons in hardcover from Nely over at All About {n}


I got 12 by Jeffrey Marcus Oshins from Goodreads giveaway program






I made a trip to the library and stopped in the Friends of the Library Bookstore and walked out with 5 books.  I bought The Terror by Dan Simmons, Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood, and The Married Man by Edmund White all in trade paperback for $.75 each.  I also got The Elder Gods by David & Leigh Eddings and Into Darkness by Barbara Michaels both in hardcover for a $1 each.

I haven't read Barbara Michaels in ages. I used to love her Egyptian mysteries.

It looks like you got some great deals on those books-I don't think it counts as breaking your book buying ban. :)

I enjoyed Alias Grace, and when I was a teenager, I was a huge fan of Barbara Michaels. Enjoy your books!

I love the library sales. We have them twice a year but also have a few sale shelves in the library that are always there. It's fun to score good books!

Mary said...

Nice list. I really need to try a Rhys Bowen book.

I'm very curious about the Atwood book - I shall have to go off and read the summary (aka buy it on impulse). Nice haul!

Krista said...

Looks like some great books. I'm always jealous of library sales, ours never seems to have one.

I think you've found one of the few Barbara Michaels books I haven't read. My MM is here.
