Mailbox Monday


I am still in trial (which means I am still whining about being in trial), but a couple of books still managed to make it into my house in time for Mailbox Monday. Funny how there is always some excuse to buy a book!

Fraud by Anita Brookner (because I liked her Incidents in the Rue Laugier, reviewed here, and want to read more)



Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon



A friend saw this at my house, said she had read it in college a few years back and really liked it, but didn't think it was a book that "old people" would read. I threw her in the dungeon.

I don't blame you for throwing your friend in the dungeon! Enjoy your new books!

I read and enjoyed another Anita Brookner but I'm blanking on the title right now. My MM is here.

Thanks for the visits and the comments.

And Carin, thanks for the award. I'll come over as soon as I come up for air -- I'm still at work getting ready for a mid-trial hearing tomorrow morning.

As for that "friend" -- I think I'll let her out of the dungeon when she turns 40. :)

Fraud has an interesting cover.

I finished reading Wonder Boys about an hour ago, so I look forward to reading your thoughts on The Mysteries of Pittsburgh.

I find an Anita Brookner every 6 months is just about the right dose for her for me-!
