Mailbox Monday


It is a short Mailbox Monday list this week, because only one book came into my house:

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks



I was a little bored by March (my review is here), although Brooks won the Pulitzer Prize for it, so I was reluctant to read this one.  But I've now read several reviews and I've been converted -- it sounds great.

It will count as one of my Bibliopholic Books.

I have read several good reviews for this book. I hope you enjoy this one!

Rose City Reader said...

Thanks Beth! I read just the first page and I really want to dive in. But there are several books I need to get to first. My Guilt List is getting too long!

Looks like a great book! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

I never heard of this one.

Here is mine

I enjoyed this book, though some reviewers didn't care for the personal life of the protagonist getting tangled into the story.

"March," I read and thought well-written, but very presumptuous in the way it took great liberties with Mr. March, making him into some one the original author would not have approved up.

I hope you enjoy this one more than March (which I have but haven't read yet)!

Brooks is an author I'd like to read at some point! Enjoy!

Here's my Mailbox.

I've read award-winners like that- everyone seemed to love them but me! I hope that this one is better for you, and I'll look for your review!

People of the Book sounds interesting. I enjoy reading works that shift in time, with multiple plot lines.

I have People of the Book. It is supposed to be good! Here's what I got this week.

Rose City Reader said...

Thanks for all the comments! I have been swamped today with trial prep, but will go on a round of visits as soon as I come up for air.

I'm nearly halfway there on the Radcliffe - 47! I was pleasantly surprised.

I have this one on my shelf waiting to be read so I look forward to your thoughts on it. I read a non-fiction book by Brooks earlier this year and liked it.

I juist finished it and, while it wasn't the most well written book I've ever read, I found that I really enjoyed the story. I love history and the preservation of books, so I really loved how she traced the history of the book. It is loosely based on a real haggadah whose illustrations can be found online. I really enjoyed looking at those!
