Mailbox Monday

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.

I got one book last week:

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan. I love the faux-'70s cover!

Normally, I never buy a brand new book because it takes me years to get around to reading any book I buy -- I like to let them shelf age for a while, like wine -- so I might as well wait and find a used copy. 

But Ian McEwan is such a favorite of mine, and his new book fits into a favorite niche of mine (Cold War, British espionage) that I couldn't resist. So I have a brand new hardback just waiting to be cracked open.  I should get to it by 2016.

Sounds like an interesting read, enjoy!

That's so funny because my first thought was, "Oh, I hate that cover!" LOL. I think I have post-seventies stress disorder.

I do that too! I have to wait until a book strikes my fancy which could be months or years away. I have to read some library books right now before they are due and it's a real struggle.

Looks like a good book.
