Mailbox Monday + Booksale Loot (July 12)

Mailbox Monday buttonA couple more books arrived in the mail this week: Is Anybody Out There? edited by Nick Gevers and Marty Halpern (courtesy of Marty Halpern, who blogs at More Red Ink) and The Great Lover by Jill Dawson, which Sarah from Reading the Past kindly sent me (for some reason, I didn’t get a copy of this one in my Book Blogger Con swag bag).


I also went to my local library’s lawn sale (as they called it) with Tina (Bookshipper), which turned out to be a bit disappointing: the pickings were limited to two tablefulls of books. I still managed to grab three (for a total of $2!): The Listening Eye by Patricia Wentworth (sorry about the terrible cover image), Off Limits: Tales of Alien Sex edited by Ellen Datlow and The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. Plus Tina gave me The Truth about Delilah Blue by Tish Cohen.


What did you find in your mailbox this past week? For other Mailbox Monday posts, head over to Marcia’s blog, The Printed Page.

  13. Sad when a library book sale is bad with only 3 books! I've heard a lot of good stuff about the Hugo Cabret book but I haven't read it.

  19. I have the Jill Dawson book ready to read as well. I think the cover image caught my attention, but when I found out it was about Rupert Brooke I had to have it. I used to have this weird literary crush on him! :)
