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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

My Book Club seldom picks mysteries but this time around we are reading a vintage classic, so I got a copy:



The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey (voted greatest mystery novel of all time by the Crime Writers' Association in 1990)

I also managed to get to the Grant High School used book sale this year and got a nice stack of books, including:



Steaming to Bamboola: The World of a Tramp Freighter by Christopher Buckley (one of his earlier books and hard to find)



The End of the Wasp Season by Denise Mina (I've been collecting her books, but have not read any of them yet)



Famous Houses and Literary Shrines of London by Arthur St. John Adcock (catnip for book geeks like me)
