Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday a weekly meme created by
and is being hosted all this month by Let Them Read Books

Saturday I received in the mailbox 'Pink Sugar' by O. Douglas. I found it at Alibris Used Books  It is a 1924 hardback copy with dust jacket! It is in really nice shape and I can't wait to get reading it.

Today I got two great books in the mailbox...
A giveaway I won over at Debbie's Book Bag -  a cozy mystery  'A Deadly Penance' by Maureen Ash 

and another O. Douglas from Alibris - 'Eliza for Common'. This is a 1928 American first edition hardback in beautiful shape with the dust jacket intact. I love old books!

1924                 1928


  1. Oh wow, those old books look fabulous! I hope you enjoy them!

  2. Lucky you! Especially with the lovely old O.Douglas books. I read Pink Sugar recently and really enjoyed it, I hope you do too. I bought The Setons and Ann and her Mother not long ago. Hoping to read them soon.

  3. I love cozy mysteries! I hope you enjoy your new books.

    Happy Holidays!

  4. Those are cool old books! Love the covers!

    By the way -- when you leave comments on my blog, I always think it is my mom because her name is Peggy too. I always have to look closely to figure out which Peggy it is. :)

  5. I haven't heard of O. Douglas, but those look like fun finds!

  6. I think this is the first list I've seen this week about which I was officially jealous of every item! Happy reading.
    The Beauty of Eclecticism

  7. I haven't heard of O. Douglas before either, but I agree with Alyce, those look like great finds! Hope you enjoy them all.

  8. Those old books look so nice! I generally can get to find these old books in my part of the world. Its the new ones which are not obtainable.
