It's Mailbox Monday Again

I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday for the first time in a long time.  I've been trying not to buy so many books and movies lately, since my TBR and TBW shelves are sagging already.  But I hit a clearance sale on Barnes & Noble's website last week and did get a couple things for myself, as well as some birthday and Christmas presents for friends and family.  Here's what I got for me:


The Pursuit of Mary Bennet by Pamela Mingle has been on my TBR list for quite a while.  Isn't the cover pretty?  Of all the Pride and Prejudice pastiches that focus on Mary Bennet that I've read about, this one has gotten the most positive reviews, so I'm hopeful about it.

And Wild Western Days by Clarence E. Mulford is actually a collection of 3 full-length Hopalong Cassidy novels:  The Coming of Cassidy, Bar-20, and Hopalong Cassidy.  I've never ready any of Mulford's books, so I'm really looking forward to these!  I hear they're a lot different from the Hopalong Cassidy movies, much less light-hearted.  Interesting!

  4. Huh, a story about Mary Bennet sounds interesting. She's always the one I feel the worst for, poor thing. I may add it to my to-reads list.

  6. I bought the Mary Bennet book as an ebook in a sale a while ago. But I haven't read it yet, unfortunately.

    1. It does look so interesting, doesn't it? I've always felt sorry for Mary.
