Mailbox Monday for 5/3/10


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







Our library had their annual sale so I stopped in the other day before I went to work and bought a few books.  The hardcovers were $1 and the paperbacks were $.50.  I haven't been reading plays lately so I bought two in hardcover, Veronica's Room and Death Trap both by Ira Levin.  I also picked up Belgarath The Sorcerer by David and Leigh Eddings in hardcover, a really old copy of Walden and "Civil Disobedieance " by Henry David Thoreau in paperback, Great Tales And Poems of Edgar Allan Poe in paperback, and a bookclub hardcover of Family Album by Danielle Steel, don't ask.





On a trip to Barnes & Noble to exchange some books I didn't want, I picked up a harcover of The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry off the bargain table, a paperback of The Mysterious Mr. Quin by Agatha Chrisite, a trade paperback of Daywatch by Sergei Lukyanenko, and the DVD of Let The Right One In.

The Lace Reader, Daywatch, and Let the Right One In look great. I loved the movie based on Let the Right One In.

Oh, I love Ira Levin's work...and Death Trap I haven't read, but saw that movie with Christopher Reeve a few years ago.

Enjoy your books.

I like Ira Levin's books. Those two titles I haven't read yet. I will have to seek out copies. PussReboots.

You got some great books here! I have The Lace Reader...planning on getting to it some time this year. I think I read Daywatch (I know I read Nightwatch), but I think the cover was different. I'm going to have to look into that. Nightwatch was really good...did you read it? I liked the movies too. Of course, I loved Let the Right One In. The book was my favorite read from 2009. Have you read it? If not, you really must!

I'm doing a double MM today since I missed last week because of my illness...ugh! I picked up two A. Christie novel anthologies. I'm pretty excited about that!

Happy Monday! =O)

You had a great week! I'll be interested to see if the Ira Levin titles are as scary as Rosemary's Baby. Enjoy!

Ooh I like the Poe book and the Agatha Christi one too. Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Poe is one of my favorites and the lace reader was great. I haven't read my copy of Walden in ages....

Happy reading and enjoy your books

Library book sales are my favorite thing!

I liked the movie of Death Trap. I wonder what it would be like to read the play.
