Mailbox Monday for 1/23/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted all this month by Alyce of At Home With Books.

This was the week of my last buying binge for a while.  I go into stores and I just can't help myself.  I really do need my hands slapped one of these days.


I received a trade paperback of The Dispatcher by Ryan David Jahn for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.




The lovely Becke of The Mysterious Garden Muse, just so happens to be the moderator of the mystery board over at Barnes & Noble.  She generously, without my knowing about it, a package of three books.  They were a hardcover of The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe (I couldn't find the correct cover anywhere), a paperback of The Gift Shop by Charlotte Armstrong, and a hardcover A Puzzle for Fools by Patrick Quentin (again not the right cover.)
















This is where I went a little crazy.  I went to Barnes & Noble to pick up a trade paperback of The Man in the Lower Ten by Mary Roberts Rinehart that I had ordered.  While there I picked up a paperback of From Hell With Love by Simon R. Green.  They have a great CD sale right now, buy 2 get 1 for free, so I picked up The Italian by Patrizio, Ultimate Dolly Parton, and Crystal Gayle Greatest Hits.  That trip happened on Friday.  

Then today (Sunday) I went to exchange a few books that I was given as a gift.  Since the gift giver could not find a receipt I had to trade them in at the lowest price, I think I got robbed a bit on this.  So I picked up a trade paperback of The Circular Staircase by Mary Roberts Rinehart and 3 more CDs.  I got Forever Begins Tonight by Patrizio, Patrizio, and The Artist Collection: Julie London.





On Friday (it was my big shopping day; clothes, camera, the whole enchilada) I stopped in at Target, don't remember why though.  While I was there, I picked up a  Blue-Ray of American Psycho since it was on sale for $5.  I also got Bambi on Blue-Ray since it was on sale as well.

You had a fantastic week! What fun shopping, but I had to chuckle that you bought American Psycho and Bambi at the same time! lol Have a great week, Ryan!

Oh Ryan, you are so awesome in your tastes. :)

I am happy you picked up The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe. I loved that book, have it autographed before she died. :)

American Psycho and Bambi? Too funny! And so excited to see that there's a new Simon R Green book out, as I love his series! Thanks for the heads up, and happy reading!

Books, music and movies! Love it :)

I love the cover of The Gift Shop. I would have bought the book for that cover alone.

Zia said...

Books and music my two favorite things. And movies too :) The Dispatchers looks really good. Have a great week :)

Okay, this is getting really scary. You're never going to guess what movie I bought at the library sale this weekend. The Killer Collector's Edition DVD of American Psycho, the uncut version, for $1.50. I mean what are the odds that we would buy the same book one week and now the same movie? *Twilight Zone music playing* LOL!

Who is this Patrizio person? He's a hottie!

You really got a lot of great books and music. I'd say it's the mother load!

You had a great week for new books. I'm especially interested in The Dispatcher --intriguing--enjoy

Kaye said...

Wow, Ryan, all that loot should keep you real busy for a little bit, anyway. Lol! Becke is a sweetie, isn't she? B&N are so lucky to have her. Crystal Gayle CD should be fabulous. She has the most gorgeous voice. Enjoy all your new reads and listens.

Hahaha Ryan; where's the restraint ... love it!! Nice book picks and I like your taste with Patrizio :)

Staci said...

You definitely went wild!! I love it! I have to say that putting the American Psycho and Bambi next to each other in your post made me laugh!! I think I've lost it!

Alyce said...

I can definitely understand book binging! :) The hardest place for me to pass up is the used book store (because I feel like I'm getting a deal so I can buy more).

LoriStrongin said...

hahaha, looks like you had a good week!

I LOVE those songs you posted! I've never heard of Patrizio Buanne before, but I think I'm gonna have to go find more of his music. And Jolene! Man, I love that song.


Smiles!
Lori
