Mailbox Monday #100

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the tour) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Avis of She Reads and Reads.  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.  Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich, which my mom lent me.

2.  The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni, which I bought at the library sale for 50 cents.

3.  Sonnets from the Portuguese by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, which I bought for $1 at the library sale. My book is hardcover and is just baby blue.

4.  Dark Fields of the Republic by Adrienne Rich, which I got at the library sale for 50 cents. For some reason I could not find the cover on Amazon.

What did you receive in your mailbox?

  8. I can’t wait to see what you think of Giovanni’s work.

    • That was my favorite find at the sale and the first one I saw! I was so excited about it. I’ve been reading quite a bit of poetry lately. I guess it helps…but I finally have some reviews coming up.

  9. I have to get to Sizzling 16 soon!!! Enjoy your new loot!

  10. Those are some great library sale finds! I didn’t think I was going to have a mailbox post, but there were some books stuffed in the mailbox when I left your house on Sat. I’ll be posting shortly.
