Mailbox Monday #125

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at A Girl and Her Books, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Passages to the Past.  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 purchased at a recent flea market trip:

1. 61 Hours by Lee Child

2. Reckless by Andrew Gross

3. Vapor Trail by Chuck Logan

4. Don’t Blink by James Patterson

5. Private by James Patterson

And one book from my mom, which she bought while visiting Wiggles and I for the month, but didn’t finish reading until she made it back home . . . so she had to mail to me.

6. Tick Tock by James Patterson

What did you receive in your mailbox?

  6. What a great deal! I also tend to avoid anybody selling inexpensive (or really any) books because I already have so many I need to read! My husband keeps saying that he hopes we can afford to hire movers the next time we move because he doesn’t want to move all my books again himself!

    • I think my husband would agree with yours after moving all the books from the apartment to the new house last month. I doubt he’ll want to do that again.

  7. You got some good mysteries there. My husband loves Lee Child’s books. I have TICK TOCK on my Kindle and need to get to it. Maybe on my vacation. Enjoy!

  8. Wow! Great finds.

  12. I know what you mean about avoiding book tables, because you’ll get sucked in.

    I have made some good buys of books at tag sales.

  13. Wow, it looks like you found some terrific finds at the flea market! I hope they’re all winners!

  14. Enjoy your finds!!! I would go wild at a flea market!!

    • Thanks. I limited myself, but I have to say that I tended to avoid the tables with books, but the Lee Child book suckered me into looking at that particular table and I walked away with 5 hardcovers for $8. Can’t beat that.
