Mailbox Monday #118

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Library of Clean 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.  White Egrets by Derek Walcott, which I received from my cousin Ashley.  I’m glad I get to borrow it.

2. Spinning by Michael Baron for review.

3. Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran for review.

4. Wild Dreams of a New Beginning by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, which I got at the library sale for 50 cents.

5. The Book of American Negro Poetry Edited by James Weldon Johnson, which I got at the library sale for 50 cents; Langston Hughes’ inclusion is what sold me on this volume in spite of the title.

6. Dr. Seuss Fine Feathered Friends by Tish Rabe for 50 cents at the library sale.

7. Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss for 50 cents at the library sale.

What did you get in your mailbox?
