Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).
Lori at Lori's Reading Corner is hosting in January. Please visit her fun blog for giveaways, reviews, and lots more.
GIVEAWAY REMINDER: You still have today to enter the giveaway for On the Rocks: A Willa Cather and Edith Lewis Mystery by Sue Hallgarth, a historic, literary mystery that is the first of what looks like a terrific new series.
Thanks go to book publicist Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy, and copies for a giveaway! The book is available on amazon or, better yet, ask your local bookstore to order it!
MY BOOKS: Thanks to a little browsing at my favorite Second Glance Books, I found a few mysteries that caught my fancy. Cold, grey Januaries always put me in the mood to read mysteries.
Light Thickens by Ngaio Marsh. I read one of her mysteries last year and now want to read them all.
Upon a Dark Night by Peter Lovesey. I've been gathering his Peter Diamond mysteries -- it's time to start reading them.
The Man from Beijing by Henning Mankell. A stand-alone mystery by the author of the Wallender series. I love the tv version with Kenneth Branaugh.
And I got an irresistible book with drawings of letters by David Hockney, each accompanied by an essay by a famous author. How cool!
Hockney's Alphabet by David Hockney.
