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)

Diary of an Eccentric is hosting in March.  Please stop by her terrific blog to see what this "eccentric bookworm" is reading lately.

Two books came into my house last week.

 

The Things You Would Have Said: The Chance to Say What You Always Wanted Them to Know, edited by Jackie Hooper.


This looks great!  It is the book edition of the popular blog by the same name.  It contains letters written by real people to others who have passed out of their lives -- parents, friends, enemies, their childhood selves, etc.  The letters are incredible.




Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch by Sally Bedell Smith.  I got this one from the LibraryThing Early reviewer program.  I've gotten my LibraryThing list under control, so I am looking forward to this one.

Looking forward to your comments on the Queen E book. I have a biography of her by Andrew Marr - The Real Elizabeth - and wonder how they compare.

I am a bit of a Royal Watcher so that book about Elizabeth definitely interests me - I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
