Mailbox Monday for 1/3/11


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is being hosted all this month by Rose City Reader.


I received a trade paperback of The Alchemy of Chance by Peter S. Brooks from the publisher for review.



From Barnes & Noble I bought two paperbacks on my last trip, The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan and Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie.


I bought the hardcover of Odd and the Frost Giants from Wal-Mart for $3.


I bought a excellent condition hardcover of A Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan from the Friends of the Library Book Store for only $1.

I may have to go see if our Wal-Mart has Odd and the Frost Giants for that price. I read an e-Galley from the publisher and thought the book was great. Enjoy your new books!
