Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted all this month by Metroreader.
I know I'm a glutton for punishment, but sometimes I just can't help myself. After reading my first Maise Dobbs book last year, when I was given the opportunity to read more for an upcoming TLC Book Tour, I jumped at the chance. I wish I could have reviewed all of them, but I'm not that good. So instead I went with the first two and the last two. So I got trade paperbacks of Maise Dobbs, Birds of a Feather, and A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear. I also received an ARC of Elegy for Eddie by her as well.
The last time I was in Barnes & Noble I decided to order two books that they didn't have in stock, well they came in last week and I was able to pick them up. I wanted The Woman in Black by Susan Hill, but didn't want the movie tie-in cover, so I got this trade paperback instead. When I reviewed The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, I couldn't find a picture of the cover I had on my edition, so I used this one instead. I just assumed it wasn't available but when I was looking on line a few weeks ago, I found it. So I ordered it, and the fact that it's a hardcover is just a bonus.
I was perusing a used music store looking for Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits and was disappointed when the didn't have it. I looked through their clearance section, 3 for a $1, and found one CD that I wanted. So I picked up Testify by M People for thirty-three cents.
