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.
