Mailbox Monday: Merry Hall and Cookies

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday!  I was thrilled to host in December.  Have a very happy New Year!

MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event.  It looks like the idea now is to return Mailbox Monday to its permanent home, so check back there next week to make your first MM post of the New Year.


Will you make any book- or blog-related new year resolutions? Please share!

MY RESOLUTIONS: My resolution is to get this blog more integrated into social media.  In particular, I want to do more with my Rose City Reader Book Blog facebook page, because I think there is potential there to use it to post interesting short bits in addition to linking to the blog posts.

With that in mind, please "Like" my Rose City Reader Book Blog facebook page! If you have a blog-related facebook page, please leave a link to it in a comment and I will be sure to "Like" your page as well.

MY BOOKS: I got some books for Christmas this week:

Merry Hall and Laughter on the Stairs -- the first two volumes of a trilogy by Beverley Nichols. I somehow ended up with the third volume, Sunlight on the Lawn, but asked Santa for the first two to complete the set.

The Merry Hall Trilogy was first published in the 1950s, but Timber Press of Portland issued this nifty facsimile edition in the late 1990s.

The Grand Central Baking Book: Breakfast Pastries, Cookies, Pies, and Satisfying Savories from the Pacific Northwest's Celebrated Bakery by Piper Davis and Ellen Jackson.

I'm not a bread baker, but Grand Central has the best cookies I have ever eaten so I have long wanted this cookbook. Yum!


What books came into your house last week?  Leave your link below or in a comment.  If you don't have a blog but want to play along, leave a comment listing your new books.
