Mailbox Monday


I have to cheat a little on Mailbox Monday this week because no books came into my house last week -- at least not to stay. But this is the last week Marcia -- who invented Mailbox Monday and made it so much fun -- is hosting this popular weekly event, so I didn't want to miss out.  I did get three audio books from the library that will have to count. I have started two of them already -- one in the car, the other on my iPod.

Starting in August, Mailbox Monday will rotate hosts. Read the details here. I'll be hosting in January 2011 -- woo hoo!

Down River by John Hart (Edgar winner, so this counts as entertainment and a chance to scratch something off one of my lists --  I'm almost half-way through this one on my iPod.)



The Idea of Perfection by Kate Grenville (Orange winner -- another list opportunity; I am halfway through this one in the car)



The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson (I want to read these in order, so this one will have to sit in my iTunes library until my hold on the first one comes in)

It will be interesting to hear what you think of the Stieg Larsson book when you get to it.

Nice mailbox. I need to start the Stieg Larsson trilogy too.

I really enjoyed the Larsson trilogy. I've got Grenville's The Secret River on my TBR shelves. It's been sitting there long enough, methinks! Happy reading!

I found your blog thru Mailbox Monday, and I think it is really interesting!
I have not read the Larsson trilogy either...tho like many others, I feel like I should start it.

SS -- I hope the first one comes in soon. I always seem to be in the mood for mysteries in the summer.

Vivienne -- I want to read them before the movie comes out!

Suko -- Thanks!

Bermuda -- I am glad I am not the only one behind on this trend!

Cathy -- Good to know! This is my first Kate Grenville book and I really, really like it. Now I want to read more.

BookGirl -- Thanks for stopping by! Glad you found my blog.

I have not read the Larsson books either but everyone raves about them and says they are must reads. I guess I need to get on the ball and join in on reading them.

The Idea of Perfection sounds good. Looking forward to your thoughts.

I finished The Girl Who Played with Fire a few days ago. It was fun. Lisbeth has a bigger presence in the second book, which I think is a good thing.
