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).
I'm Booking It is hosting in March.
A lot of books came into my house last week. One I won in a giveaway on Knitting and Sundries -- Thanks Julie!
Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane
I found several at Booktique in Lake Oswego, one of my favorite Friends of the Library book stores:
The Black Book by Ian Rankin (because I have only just now "discovered" his John Rebus series and am obsessed)
The Private Patient by P. D. James (because I have decided to tackle the whole Adam Dalgliesh series)
Snobs by Julian Fellows (because it looks like guilty pleasure)
The Hour: A Cocktail Manifesto by Bernard DeVoto (an irresistible reprint from Tin House Books)
And I picked up a few from the paperback swap shelf at the University Club when I was there for my partner meeting (small compensation for a LONG meeting). I took books only, so will have to leave books when I am back for our next meeting.
Resurrection Men by Ian Rankin (see above re: new John Rebus obsession)
Venetian Mask by Mickey Friedman (to add to my list of Venice books)
The Bookman's Promise by John Dunning (it looks interesting and I have a weakness for immaculate pocket paperbacks)
