Mailbox Monday for 7/19/10


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



I won two books by Patricia C. Wrede from Cecelia of Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia.  The first one is a paperback of Dealing With Dragons, book one of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles.  The second book was a trade paperback of A Matter of Magic, which is composed of Mairelon the Magician and The Magician's Ward.


The Knight Life by Keith Knight was a win from Carol of Carol's Notebook.



I bought two hardcovers from The Friends of the Library Book Store for $1 a piece.  The first one is   Bedlam's Bard by Mercedes Lackey and Ellen Guon, which is composed of Knights of Ghosts and Shadows and Summoned to Tourney.  The second one is Bless The Child by Cathy Cash Spellman.  Neither one of these covers is the one I have.  I actually like this cover of Bedlam's Bard better, I couldn't find a picture of  the one I have anywhere.  This cover for Bless the Child is what they used after the HORRIBLE movie came out, I just couldn't find a big enough picture of the original cover.


I found a hardcover of Tigers In Red Weather by Ruth Padel for $1 at The Dollar Tree.  It's about the author's, who is the great-great-granddaughter of Charles Darwin, journey to see if tigers can be saved in the wild.


I bought the DVD of Uncle Buck from Wal-Mart for $5.

I bought The Enchanted Forest Chronicles last year...it's an all-in-one omnibus. I haven't read it yet, but I heard they were great books. I'll look forward to your review. I wondered if Bless the Child the book would be better than the movie. Probably...dumb question, right?! And I love Uncle Buck! Great mailbox this week. =O)

A Matter of Magic and Bless The Child look incredible! I also really enjoy John Candy's movies. I remember exactly where I was when I heard he had died and I cried.

A little late to this post but I really love the film Uncle Buck. That scene between John Candy and the school principal creases me everytime!
