Mailbox Monday


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

The Library of Clean Reads is hosting in February.

Last week was my birthday, so I got a couple of books for presents. I also got a couple for myself and a new release from Hawthorne Books.

The Chronology of Water: A Memoir by Lidia Yuknavitch (from Hawthorne)



Of German Ways by Lavern Rippley (one of my birthday presents from a friend who knew I would love it)



Weekends for Two in the Pacific Northwest: 50 Romantic Getaways by Bill Gleeson (from my mom for my birthday)



The Crime of the Century and Difficulties With Girls, both by Kingsley Amis (I got these for myself after my mom introduced me to ThriftBooks.com, my new favorite book site).

You always get the most interesting books! The Chronology of Water looks disturbing, but really good...I'll watch for your review :)

Wendy: Yes, I don't know if the Water book is my cup of tea, but I'll give it a try.

Chronology of Water has quite a cover and as usual love the diversity of reads.

Enjoy :)

Happy belated birthday, fellow Aquarian! (My birthday was two weeks ago.) The Chronology of Water has quite the striking cover -- it sounds like an intense read. Hope you enjoy all your books!

Oh my, I just read the beginning of The Chronology of Water on Amazon and all I can say is that I think I need to read that book!
