Mailbox Monday for 2/21/11


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is being hosted all this month by Laura of Library of Clean Reads.



I stopped into the Friends of the Library Book Store and picked up two hardcovers for $1 a piece.  I got Alphabet Thorn by Patricia A. McKillip and Stitches in Time by Barbara Michaels.



Then I went to Barnes & Noble and picked up a bargain hardcover of The Moving Finger by Agatha Christie and trade paperback of The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett.

I grew up loving Barbara Michael's mysteries, but I haven't read one in a long time. I can't recall anymore which ones I read and which ones I didn't. Enjoy your books!

Library book sales rule!

A hard cover of THE MOVING FINGER -good buy! One of Christie's poison books. Very nasty doings in a seemingly perfect English village.
Are you going to review it?

Yvette said...

Meant to say too, Ryan, how much I love the covers on these new re-issues of the Dashiell Hammett books. Can't go wrong with THE THIN MAN.
