Mailbox Monday: Garage Sale Finds

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

I can't resist poking around garage sales and often find some great books. My haul this weekend included:

Canada by Richard Ford (one of my favorite authors)

The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht (I'm always slow with bestsellers like this Orange Prize winner)

Telex from Cuba by Rachel Kushner (this was a National Book Award finalist, but it never hit my radar)

A Heaven in the Eye by Clyde Rice (this falls in the category of "random memoirs" – this one about the authors Oregon and San Francisco adventures between WWI and WWII)

The Ransom of Russian Art by John McPhee (another favorite of mine)


  1. Great finds! I loved the audio of Canada!

  2. Such interesting finds including The Tiger's Wife!

  3. Great mailbox today. I love how you can find gems in random boxes at yard sales.

    2 Kids and Tired Books

  4. Nice!
    I've pretty good luck over the years with garage sales!
    I've also had fantastic luck in Portland with church and synagogue book sales too!!
    Enjoy your books!!

  5. Great Garage Sale finds.

    I haven't been to any garage sales for a while, but there are always books.

    We just had our library sale.

    ENJOY your reading.
