. Last week was a book bonanza at my house, although none came in the mail. It was the annual Friends of the Multnomah County Library book sale -- my favorite book event of the year. We got too many books to list them all for Mailbox Monday, but my favorites include: Not Now But Now by M.F.K. Fisher (a reprint of her 1947 novel) The Rebel Angels by Robertson Davies (the first book in his Cornish Trilogy and on the Anthony Burgess list of favorites) And three volumes of John Galsworthy's Forsyte Saga, in nice vintage Scrivener's editions: Maid in Waiting, Flowering Wilderness, and One More River (also called Over the River). I'm working on a New Year's resolution to read the Forsyte Saga, so I am excited about these. Unfortunately, these are the last three volumes of the nine volume set, so now I am going to obsess on finding the others in matching editions.
