Mailobox 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).

Alyce at At Home With Books is hosting in January. Please stop by her wonderful blog!

Because I stopped at the wonderful Second Hand Prose bookstore this past weekend, I got a big stack of books last week. This is just some of them:

Map of Another Town: A Memoir of Provence by M. F. K Fisher (perfect for the European Reading Challenge, the Memorable Memoirs Challenge, and the Foodie's Reading Challenge)



Daughters-in-Law by Joanna Trollope



Back When We Were Grownups and Ladder of Years by Anne Tyler

 

Original Sin by P. D. James (Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Series #9)



The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille (I've been in the mood every since I read, and loved, Cathedral, reviewed here)



To Jerusalem and Back by Saul Bellow (a possibility for the Memorable Memoirs Challenge and one I am particularly interested in after reading The Mandelbaum Gate by Muriel Sparks. reviewed here)



I also visited the Little Free Library in my neighborhood where I dropped off some books I've finished and snagged a couple of good ones:

Second Honeymoon by Joanna Trollope (love the cover)



Noah's Compass by Anne Tyler
