Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

Woo!  Have I got a mailbox to share with you!  My week started off with a package from Amazon with a book that's been on my wishlist for a loooong time.  And yesterday my daughter and I went to a library book sale where I found some really great books and then continued my lucky streak at a local used bookstore.

From Amazon:

From the library book sale:

A Crown for Elizabeth by Mary M. Luke
The Medieval Castle by Philip Warner
Nicholas and Alexandra by Robert K. Massie
Life Mask by Emma Donoghue

From the used bookstore:

The Lives of the Kings and Queens of England edited by Antonia Fraser
Mary Queen of Scots by N. Brysson Morrison
The Queen's Slave Trader: John Hawkyns, Elizabeth I, and the Trafficking in Human Souls by Nick Hazelwood
The Masque of the Black Tulip (Book Two, Pink Carnation series) by Lauren Willig
Louis XIV by Anthony Levi

So, what goodies came your way?



  1. Lots of good stuff there!! I have had a copy of Love and Louis XIV on my shelf for the longest time, and often stop to pick it up and scan through the pages when I walk past. It looks like a great book and I hope you enjoy it!

  2. What a awesome haul of historical fiction! Great finds!

  3. You got some wonderful books.
    This past week, in the mail I got:
    THE MOON LOOKED DOWN by Dorothy Garlock
    THE CRAZY SCHOOL by Cornelia Read
    TRIUMPH IN ARMS by Jennifer Blake
    BETWEEN FRIENDS by Kristy Kiernan

    I have actually been avoiding book stores, etc. I keep looking at all the books I need to find room for and need to get those organized first. However, I know I'll still keep getting them. There are so many good ones out there.

  4. Thats wonderful stuff you have collected. That library sale is something.

  5. Library sales are always fun! I havent heard of those books, but I'm looking forward to your review of The Masque of the Black Tulip. I did hear good things about the Pink Carnation series.

  6. Wow! That's quite a haul! I don't think I've ever seen the local library system here have a sale!

  7. Wow, it looks like you're in for some good reading! Enjoy!

  8. Your library sale has many great books! Ours is so picked over by the time it opens to the public but I still manage to find some good books when I go. Enjoy all your new reads!

  9. Wow! There's some gorgeous covers in that bunch! Bet the insides are really good, too!

  10. Awesome loot there! Library sale!!
    Jealous! I have the Massie book, Her Little Majesty and the first Louis book. I hope you find the time to enjoy them!
