Mailbox Monday #105

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 Julie of Knitting and Sundries .  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.  The Complete Edgar Allan Poe Tales complete and unabridged published from Chatham River Press from the library sale for $1.

2.  Jack London collection published by Longmeadow Press from the library sale for $1.

3.  Mark Twain collection published by Longmeadow Press from the library sale for $1.

4.  Seamus Heaney Selected Poems 1966-1987from the library sale for 50 cents.

What did you receive in your mailbox?

    Wow!! You hit the book bonanza at your library sale – congratulations!

    I have to tell you – I think of you each time I read a poem and “get it!” I recently read Edward Field’s THE JOURNEY, then searched a little (online) to learn more about the poet. Very interesting!

  12. You did great at the library sale! Too bad Seamus was a bit dented after Cris “threw” the book at the poor librarian. LOL
