I really wouldn’t have had a Mailbox Monday to report this week if I had not visited the discount bookstore Wonder Book in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which simply put is a maze of older books from other people and remainders from books stores and more.  I also received two books in the mail.

Here’s what I received:

1. The Collected Tales of Edgar Allan Poe by Edgar Allan Poe, although this volume insists in the introduction that The Raven is a story and in the book, which are both incorrect statements.

2. Jane Austen Ruined my Life by Beth Pattillo, which I was happy to buy half off the listed price of $4.97 since some of the pages were falling out.

3. Everyman’s Poetry: The Brontes, which includes the poems of not only the sisters, but also their brother.

4. The Best of H.P. Lovecraft with an Introduction by Robert Bloch

5. A Rumor of War by Philip Caputo for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.

5. Nuremberg and Vietnam: An American Tragedy by Telford Taylor for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.

6. Born on the Fourth of July by Ron Kovic for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.

7. Villette by Charlotte Bronte for the Brontes Challenge that I plan to extend through next year for myself.

8. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because my copy has been so well loved that it has fallen apart from the binding.

9. The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris, which I won from Jo-Jo Loves to Read!!! which I can’t wait to read for the Reagan Arthur Challenge.

10. Heidegger’s Glasses by Thaisa Frank for a TLC Book Tour.
