None of these actually arrived in my mailbox, but I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday anyway because I did buy them all this past week! A local used bookstore is going out of business and had all its books 30% off, so you know I had to stop in. Here's part of the treasure trove I brought home:
The Black Moth by Georgette Heyer -- People tell me that since I like Jane Austen, I might like Heyer too, so I'm giving her a try.
With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin -- I loved her "Wings of Glory" books and have been wanting to read this for a long time.
Mark of the Cross by Judith Pella -- I read a bunch of Judith Pella's books back in high school and liked them a ton. This one is about England in the 1200s, so knights and stuff :-D
When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke -- My mom LOVED Janette Oke's books when I was young, and she owned the same edition of this one. I read a bunch of Oke's books back then, and this is the one I remember liking best, so I decided that hey, for $1, it was worth revisiting.
North to the Orient by Anne Morrow Lindbergh -- About Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh flying around the Arctic Circle.
Hour of Gold, Hour of Lead by Anne Morrow Lindbergh -- I love AML's collections of letters and journal entries. The only one I've read all the way through is Bring Me a Unicorn, so I snapped up this and the two following books because I'm eager to read more of these collections. This one is going to be sad, though, because it's from 1929-1932, which means it will involve the time when the Lindberghs' baby son was kidnapped and murdered.
Locked Rooms and Open Doors by Anne Morrow Lindbergh -- Promises to be happier than the previous one because it's got more about the Lindberghs flying, and also them moving to England.
War Within and Without by Anne Morrow Lindbergh -- This one is about WWII, so it's going to be really interesting, because that was when Charles Lindbergh took a very unpopular isolationist stance about not joining the war.
My Little House Songbook -- A collection of songs that are mentioned in Laura Ingalls Wilder's books! Complete with sheet music for the melodies :-) I think my kids will enjoy this as part of their piano lessons before long.
And yes, I said these were "part of the treasure trove." I also got a bunch of books for my kids! But they rushed away with them before I could grab a picture. I don't mind -- I'm happy they're excited about books :-)
Did you acquire any books this week, in your mailbox or otherwise?
