Mailbox Monday for 10/29/12


Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme created by Marcia at Mailbox Monday 



I received hardcovers of A Christmas Home by Greg Kincaid and Nutcracker by E.T.A. Hoffmann from the publisher, Crown, for review.


I received a hardcover of These Things Happen by Richard Kramer for an upcoming TLC Book Tour.




The lovely Beth of Beth's Book Reviews sent a lovely package to me.  She included paperbacks of Black Plumes and Pearls Before Swine by Margery Allingham and Black Orchids by Rex Stout.  She also included some wonderful homemade cookies that I can't stop eating.  The made some wonderful cakey chocolate chip cookies and maple cookies.  The lovely tin of apple cider tea was lovely as well.




On a trip to a used bookstore, I picked up paperbacks of Man Missing and Wolf in Man's Clothing by Mignon G. Eberhart.  I also got The Emperor's Snuff-Box by John Dickson Carr.


I picked up a $5 DVD of The Exorcist from Wal-Mart.



I picked up two DVDs at Barnes & Noble for 50% of each, "I Confess" and Vertigo.


I'm only showing one cover, but on a trip to the flea market, I picked up 22 Doctor Strange comics.

I love Alfred Hitchcock! My favorite movie is Rear Window, but I have a hard time convincing my husband to watch it. Looks like you will be busy reading this week!

The Dr. Strange Comics look totally cool. What a lovely gift!!! Enjoy all of your wonderful reads!

Wow! I got Nutcracker too - isn't it gorgeous? You're braver than I am - I could never watch The Exorcist.

You've got such a lot of mixed reading this week that you are bound to have a good week. Enjoy them all.

Years ago I stood in a line at the downtown Chicago Marshall Field's (at Christmastime) to have Maurice Sendak sign his new book: The Nutcracker. My kids loved paging through it - it still sits on my shelf.

Wow! Great bunch of books, etc.! I have A Dog Named Christmas by Kincaid, but haven't read it yet. That new one looks good. I love the movie, Vertigo. One of my fave Hitchcock movies.

Have a great week!

THANKS for sharing.

After reading your blog post today, I finally went and ordered a copy of my first Margery Allingham. Thanks for the reminder!

I listened to Christopher Plummer read The Nutcracker a few years ago and I'd be hard pressed to name a creepier story that masquerades as a children's book. I think Sendak is a perfect match to do illustrations. I might try to get a copy of this one myself.
