Mailbox Monday for 8/20/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at Mailbox Monday and is being hosted all this month by 5 Minutes for Books.


I received a hardcover of On a Farther Shore by William Souder for review form the publisher.


I received a hardcover of The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan for my birthday.  For some odd reason I was missing this book as well as the next two.  Not sure what happened to them, but it's nice to have this one again.





On a trip to a used bookstore on my birthday I ended up taking 4 books home for less than $5.  I got paperbacks of The Case of the Borrowed Brunette, The Case of the Lucky Legs, and The Case of the Perjured Parrot by Erle Stanley Gardner  I also picked up a paperback of Puzzle for Fools by Patrick Quentin.







When I got home from running errands and eating lunch on my birthday, I had a wonderful package of books waiting for me.  The lovely Becke of The Mysterious Garden Muse and the moderator of the Mystery Board on the Barnes & Noble book club site, was the lovely sender.  She sent along hardcovers of The Corpse With the Eerie Eye by R.A.J. Walling, Secret Letters by Leah Scheier, and The Old Silent by Martha Grimes.  She also sent along a trade paperback of What the Heart Remembers by Debra Ginsberg.  I also got paperbacks of The Lost by J.D. Robb and Change for the Worse by Elizabeth Lemarchand.


I also managed to pick up a hardcover of Level 26 by Anthony Zuiker from The Dollar Tree.

Oh, Ryan, I adore Rachel Carson. Silent Spring was eye-opening. I haven't seen this book yet. I love all the penny books or whatever they are called. I find them fascinating.
