Mailbox Monday for 8/30/10


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

I didn't have anything come in the mail this week but I did end up buying 6 books, 3 DVDs, and 2 CDs.  All of it for around $22.







As I do every week I stopped by the Friends of the Library Bookstore and ended up walking out with some books.  Six of them actually, 2 in hardcover and 4 in paperback.  The hardcovers were The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and The Wicked Flea by Susan Conant, both of which were $1 a piece.  The four paperbacks were only $.50 a piece and they were, Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, Games Killers Play edited by Alfred Hitchcock, Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel, and V: Death Tide by A.C. Crispin and Deborah A. Marshall.



On my trip to Wal-Mart I found two Disney movies for $6 a piece so I picked up The Black Hole and The Love Bug.




My last stop of my shopping spree was Buy Back Entertainment and there I bought two CDs and one DVD for $1.99 a piece.  I picked up Bare and Medusa from Annie Lennox and the DVD of Christmas With The Kranks.

I loved Like Water for Chocolate when I read it years ago--seriously in need of a reread, though. I haven't heard whether Laura Esquivel is still writing...

I didn't know Alfred HItchcock edited any books - I bet that one's interesting. The Love Bug for six bucks was quite a find!! Have a great week in books!

Ooh, I'm feeling nostalgic looking at your titles (and those covers, too!).

Alfred Hitchcock, Like Water for Chocolate, and The Love Bug! Not to mention some of the others that are equally compelling! Have fun!

Thanks for visiting (one of) my corners of the blog world.

Good scores, sir. I wish I had money to buy fun things. I am so on a nasty budget. that whole bloody mortgage thing gets in the way.
