Mailbox Monday for 8/1/11


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted all this month by Staci at Life in the Thumb.



I received an ARC of The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson and a trade paperback of Wherever You Go by Joan Leegant for upcoming TLC Book Tours.


I received a ARC of The Measure of the Magic by Terry Brooks from the Librarything Early Reviewer program.






On a trip to an used bookstore, I picked up a few things.  I found two more Mary Roberts Rinehart paperbacks, The State vs. Elinor Norton and The Street of Seven Stars.  I also picked up a paperback of The Case of the Foot-Loose Doll by Erle Stanley Gardner, a hardcover of The Hidden Staircase by Carolyn Keene, and The House on the Cliff by Franklin W. Dixon.



And last but not least, I visited the Friends of the Library Book Store and picked up two hardcovers for $3.50.  I got Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling and Too Far by Rich Shapero.

Wow, you really did have a bigger book buying week than me. Some good titles in there. The Lantern looks interesting. I used to love Nancy Drew growing up. Read so many of them. Enjoy!

I see you got more Rinehart with those awesome vintage covers. Great mailbox, Ryan.

Jill said...

I've been considering rereading the old Nancy Drew books to see how they hold up to my memory of them. Hope you enjoy your new books!

Staci said...

The two TLC tours looks great and I am loving the other books that you picked up too!!I wish the younger kids would give Nancy/Hardy Boys a chance..they're really fun books.

Stop by my blog and enter your link for your mailbox post...I've got it up and running!

You did good, Ryan. These are terrific titles. I wish I lived near a used book store. I used to, but...

I know, I know, I can find them on line, but it's not as much fun. :)

I envy you those Mary Roberts Rineheart finds. The Perry Masons I got from the library (the only ones they have) are not the early ones so I'm going to hold out for early Perrys when and if I can find them.

Will you be reading Harry Potter for the first time? Enjoy all of your new books!

Mystica said...

A fabulous mailbox. The Lantern is a book on my TBR as well so I hope I get to find it soon.

I loved Nancy Drew (brings back fond memories). I am curious about the Lantern.

Mary said...

Aww, Nancy Drew mysteries were such favorites many years ago. Enjoy all your books!

Bonnie said...

I had to stop by and visit your blog after Staci's commentary video,lol!
I have an ARC copy of The Lantern also and can't wait to read it. You found some great finds at the used bookstore. My son likes the Hardy Boys series and is probably one of the only kids in his middle school that reads them sadly. He's not gotten into Harry Potter though.
Great mailbox!

The Lantern looks interesting. The cover sure is beautiful. The Hidden Staircase sure brings back memories for me. It was one of the Nancy Drew titles I owned as a child. They are great books!

I have read the Terry Brooks books but not the most recent ones where he was in the future..or was it actually in the past? Anyway, yay :)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

A new Terry Brooks book... Hmmm, it looks really good! And looks like you had an amazing week in getting books here. :) Hope you have a wonderful week this week in reading too! :)

Nice mailbox! I need to go used book shopping with you, as I never have any luck when I go by myself. Great cover on The Lantern! Enjoy!
