Mailbox Monday for 10/17/11


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted all this month by Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit.


I received an ARC of A Train In Winter by Caroline Moorehead for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.
  

I won a trade paperback of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson from Bea of Bea's Book Nook.


The lovely Melissa of My World...In Words And Pages sent along a hardcover of Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel.


I bought Oliver And Company on DVD

The Lottery looks intriguing to me. I haven't thought about Oliver and Company in ages - what a treat it will be to watch that!

My anxious life said...

The Lottery is a great Halloween book... Oliver and Company is great too.

Love the song: "why should I worry? why should I care?"

Will be curious to see what you think of The Lottery. Enjoy!

Jill said...

I think of The Lottery often, that book really stuck with me from when I had to read it in school.

Serena said...

The Lottery is a book we had to read in school and one of the ones that I enjoyed most...though enjoy may not be the best term for it.

Mystica said...

Another Shirley Jackson. When am I ever going to catch up!

I am loving the cover on A Train in Winter! It sounds like a heart wrenching story. I love stories of friendship so I may be putting this on my wish list. It sounds like a powerful book.

Karen said...

Good haul. Hope you enjoy Wolf Hall. I loved it!

Kaye said...

The Train in Winter looks most intriguing. Have a wonderful week, Ryan, and enjoy your new books.

Wolf Hall was really good, sure it took me some time to read it, and sometimes I was confused but the writing was superb

Holly said...

I've had Wolf Hall for the longest and still haven't read it. Love Oliver and Company-one of my fave Disney movies :)

Staci said...

'The Lottery' was flipping awesome!! Liking the look of your TLC tour books too!

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

Thank you for the kind words. :) And I'm so glad you got the book. Hope you enjoy it!

Oh Oliver and Company! :) That is to cute a movie. ;)

Have a great week.

You received some lovely books! I can't believe I still haven't read WOLF HALL. And I'd love to read A TRAIN IN WINTER. And I LOVE Shirley Jackson. I couldn't believe it when I once had a conversation with a college English professor who had never heard of her! Enjoy your new reads!

From all my years of school one of the few things I remember clearly is reading The Lottery in seventh grade. Boy, did that story stay with me!

Mary (Bookfan) said...

I read The Lottery in high school - really liked it. Enjoy!

Michelle @ The True Book Addict said...

I still have yet to finish Wolf Hall. =O( It was promising, at least what I read of it.

I really must read The Lottery someday.

Great books (and movie)! Hope you enjoy them. =O)
