Mailbox Monday for 5/16/11


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


I've been looking for Pollyanna on DVD for a while now, so when I saw it at Wal-Mart for $10, I snatched it up.



I bought two paperbacks at a used bookstore for $.50 each.  They were The Case of Jennie Brice and The After House  by Mary Roberts Rinehart.  I've already read them so expect reviews on them shortly.

My sister used to love Pollyanna when we were little. My favorite with Hailey Mills was either Parent Trap or (I'm not sure I have this title right, it is the one where she is in Greece at an Inn with her aunt and it is from a mystery novel by Mary someone) In Search of the Castaways. Enjoy your finds!

I'll be looking forward to you reviews on the Rinehart books. The one I just finished is the only one I've read.

I remember that movie! Pollyanna enthralled and annoyed me in equal measure, as how could anyone be that perky? Wasn't there a Pollyanna song as well? Something about being happy as a clam.

I remembered the name of the movie while I was at work, it was The Moonspinners. I loved that one for some reason. i tried to read the book a few years ago and just couldn't get into it. I'm sure it is still around somewhere in my house of books!
