Mailbox Monday


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

The wonderful Amused by Books is hosting in September. Please visit!

I was in Montana last week for work (see news story here and an interesting follow up piece on Slate here), so had the chance to "discover" a terrific used book store in Kalispell called The Bookshelf.  

I found two books I've been looking for for a while now:

Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson. This is one of her non-mystery novels, from before she started her Jackson Brodie series.



First Love, Last Rites by Ian McEwan. This collection of short stories was McEwan's first published book.

I like that title, Emotionally Weird. That would definitely make me pick up the book to see what it is all about. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

I have not heard of either of these. I hope you enjoy them both.

Enjoy! Ian McEwan is kinda hit or miss for me.

I'm a fan of McEwan but haven't come across this book. I'll look for it!

Both new to me and I love the title of the second book!
