Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at To Be Continued and is now hosted at its own blog.
Happy Monday, everyone! It is a very happy Monday for me, as I have welcomed over 20 books to my bookshelf these past few weeks. Here they are.

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand: One dollar. Ooonne dolllaaarr.

Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall: Guess how much this one cost. Guess.
The Cranford Chronicles by Elizabeth Gaskell: Again. Super duper cheap.
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See: If you're wondering where I got all these books: multiple thrift stores.
No Wind of Blame by Georgette Heyer: I didn't come away with much clothes, but...books! (6 books for 7 dollars. Sevvveeeeenn dolllaaarrrrsss!)
The King by Steven James: Stole it from my dad. (He finished it!)
Mitford Years #1-4 by Jan Karon: A gift from my aunt.

What's new in your mailbox?


  1. Used book sales are my absolute favorite, and my library always have the best sales, so I totally understand your complete happiness here. Cheap books are the best! Have you read Unbroken before? If not, well you better stop everything you're doing and read it now because it is just that good. Even though it's nonfiction, it reads like riveting fiction and Louie Zamperini's story is at once horrific and awe-inspiring. I really need to reread it!

  2. Unbroken is one of my husband's favorite books ever. The early Mitford books are so enjoyable. Hope you love them!

  3. Used book sales always yield some great picks. I hope you love Shanghai Girls and Unbroken!

  4. I love buying books from a used book sale and giving them a second home. And it's cheap :)

  5. Very nice. Used book sales are the best.

    I want to read Whistling Past The Graveyard. ENJOY all of your books and the rest of your reading week.

  6. Nice! Although I love shopping the sales, I've been avoiding thrift stores and library sales because of lack of storage space for even more books. I have no self-control when I find books for $1.00 :)

  7. Nice haul! There are several in your pile that I have on my TBR as well. Hope you enjoy them all.
