Mailbox Monday Jan 11

Last Tuesday I went to the Friends of Library used Book store. They have 50 cent paper backs for the month of January. I bought some beloved read that I now get to own and a few new books that I now get to discover.

Purchased for rereading:
All the Weyrs of Pern by Ann McCaffrey. This is from the books of Pern and a fantastic read. If you've never read any of her Pern books, start with Dragonflight. It's one of the early ones and helps the reader understand the world a bit more than some of the later ones which make assumptions about the reader's knowledge.

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. I love this book and now I finally own it.

An Acceptable Time  by Madeline L'Engle. I think I may have read it, but for 50 cents it's a worthy addition to my collection and my quest to read all her books.

New to Me:
Black by Ted Dekker. I have not read any of his books before, so I thought I would give it a go.

Mr Darcy Takes a Wife  by Linda Berdoll. It sounds good and I can use it for my Austen Challenge.

Star Wars Children of the Jedi by Barbara Hambly. Some of the Star Wars books are good and some are not. I am taking the risk.

Thanks to Marcia at The Printed Page for hosting this weekly fun. Please visit her site to see who else acquired great reads this week.


  1. Wow!! What a deal that is, and you got some great books!

  2. All new titles to me and they look good! Enjoy : )

  3. Interesting selection of books. Happy reading this week!

  4. Great week! My husband and son would probably like the Star Wars book.

  5. Nice list! Fifty cent paperbacks... oh, if I didn't have such a backlog here, I'd be figuring out ways to come visit.

    I'm DYING to read All the Weyrs of Pern. LOVE that series, and have ever since I was something stupid like 12.

  6. Don't you love library sales? I always find treasures at our sales! Enjoy them!
