Mailbox Monday for 5/2/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at Mailbox Monday and is being hosted all this month by Martha of Martha's Bookshelf.




I received an ARC of Let the Devil Sleep by John Verdon, a hardcover of The American Bible by Stephen Prothero, and a trade paperback of A Bitter Truth by Charles Todd for upcoming TLC Book Tours.  


I received a hardcover of Rather Outspoken by Dan Rather from Media Connect for review.


I received a trade paperback of The Pack: Retribution by L.M. Preston for review.


I bought a trade paperback of Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie on my last trip to Barnes & Noble.



I bought the first (and only season) of The River on DVD for $8.89 from BestBuy.

I got the Dan Rather book too - I bet he has some great stories to tell. I hope you enjoy it and the rest of your new books!

Nice mailbox! I'm betting that the Dan Rather book is full of great stories! It's a shame they don't make jounalists like that anymore. Enjoy all of your new goodies! Have a great week!

I've never seen The River but the previews looked intriguing. Too bad it got canceled but that's a great price for the dvd anyway. Happy reading and viewing!

Ooh, nice collection! I'm intrigued by the Dan Rather book....and, of course, the Agatha Christie.

Enjoy!

The Dan Rather book is one that I would love to read. Quite a fun haul this week Ryan - enjoy the books and hopefully some nice weather to go with them :)

An interesting selection! Agatha Christie is a blast from the past. I ought to read another by her one day.
My Mailbox is here.
Happy Memorial Day!

Nice list of books this week. I like the cover of The Pack. I will have to check it out and see what it's about.
Happy reading,

You have several here that I am interested in, including A Bitter Truth and The Pack. I love to pick up an Agatha Christie or Rinehart now and then. I am going to check my box of books saved from college as I wouldn't be surprised to have those authors in there.
I am not familiar with The River but we have been watching hours of NCIS lately and really liking that show.
Happy reading!

I'll bet the Dam Rather book is very interesting. I can imagine he has some interesting stories to tell. I hear the Charles Todd series is excellent. I just may have to get the first book and give them a try. Enjoy your new reads!

Mary (Bookfan) said...

I'm reading A Bitter Truth right now. Hope you enjoy it!

Loving your books and am interested in the Dan Rather book and your thoughts when you post them! Hope you have a great week!

The Pack and the Dan Rather book look interesting, it will be neat to see what you think of them! Enjoy your new books!

Great books! Another Agatha Christie, I see. I'm really enjoying my AC journey so far. I just love Hercule Poirot!

I'm SO pissed that they cancelled The River. I think it had potential.

Enjoy your books...have a great week!

Hey, it's me again. I was wondering if you would mind adding a 'subscribe via email' option to your blog? They have an option in the add a gadget menu in Blogger. I've started keeping up with my favorite blogs that way because my Google Reader is so overwhelmingly crammed! I hope you don't mind doing it...for a friend. *hugs*

Enjoy all the new books.
