Mailbox Monday for 8/2/10


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is being hosted by Chick Loves Lit for the entire month of August.


I received The Insane Train by Sheldon Russell from Omnimystery for a blog tour in November.




I bought hardcovers of Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, Heidi by Johanna Spyri, The Secret Garden by Frances H. Burnett all for $1.79 from Barnes & Noble.  After I picked up Journey to the Center of the Earth and 2.000 Leagues Under the Sea last week, I went back and picked these three up off the 75% clearance table.  None of these match the covers I have though the one for Black Beauty has the same image on it.  Like the two from last week, I've never read any of these but I figure they are all classics in their own way so I should probably read them sometime.



I bought Santa Cruise by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark and Elder Gods by David & Leigh Eddings in hardcover for $1 a piece form the Friends of the Library Book Store.

I love to see what Charlie Brown has pulled out of your mailbox. Insane Train looks really good. I've never read Black Beauty if you can believe that. I hope you have a great week in books.

What an interesting collection of books...The Insane Train sounds really fascinating.

I so enjoy the covers on the classics, especially Heidi and The Secret Garden.

I have an old, old book (printed in 1921) that belonged to my mother and was written by the author of Heidi (Called Cornelli). I've never seen it anywhere else. Probably didn't do as well, but it's a similar kind of story.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your link! Hope you enjoy what you got - I hope one day I can get all of the classics for my bookshelf, too.

Happy Monday!

I love the classics you picked up. The Secret Garden <3 ... Oh, when I was a child I really wanted to live in a house like Mary Lennox and be surrounded by all those gardens.
