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).

Lady Q at Let Them Read Books is hosting in December.  Be sure and visit her terrific blog!

I got two books last week, both on a whim:

The Gospel According to Chanel: Life Lessons from the World's Most Elegant Woman by Karen Karbo.  This looks like a great first choice for the Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Challenge I am going to sign up for.



The Ghosts of Belfast by Stuart Neville.



This is his debut novel, published by Soho Crime, publisher of several great series set in foreign lands.  Neville's series (two now) is set in Ireland, other series are set in Greece (Jeffrey Siger), Iceland (Yrsa Sigurdardottir), London (Dan Waddell), and Paris (Cara Black) -- any of which would be great picks for the European Reading Challenge.

Beth: Thanks! Like I said, I grabbed both on a whim, just because the covers caught my eye.

First, I love your mailbox picture. It makes me feel nostalgic :) I think the Chanel book sounds great. Enjoy!

They both look good to me. I'd really like to read The Ghosts of Belfast since I visited Belfast this summer.

Mary: Thanks! I loved the Christmas mailbox too. It reminded me of cards my grandma used to send.

Kathy: The Belfast book may be a little violent for me, but it looks really good. What an interesting trip that must have been!

Oh I love the look of that Chanel book! Looking forward to your thoughts on that one!
