Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was looking like it was going to be a very short post, since Julie & Julia was the only book that came into my house for most of last week. But, it is garage sale season. While out for a pre-work walk Friday, I was the early bird at a yard sale and found a box of very nice over-sized paperbacks for only 50 cents each. I was a goner.

Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell (I have been waiting for this one and am very excited to read it. This counts as one of the books for my Spice of Life Challenge)

About a Boy by Nick Hornby (because I am on a Hornby kick and loved the movie)

Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris

Comfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the Table by Ruth Reichl (This is the second of her memoirs, after Tender at the Bone -- I may get the first one and read them in order)

The Waves by Virginia Woolf

Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi (I have a copy already, so got this one for my mom)

Play it as it Lays by Joan Didion (I have a copy of this too, so got this one for my sister)


  1. You got some great looking books. The only one I've read is Julie & Julia and I loved it.

  2. Great list of books. I love the mailbox graphic!

    Happy reading

  3. Lucky find in that yard sale! Good for you. Enjoy reading them all.

  4. Boy, there's lots going on in Tehran! I recently got...I think it's called "A Prisoner in Tehran", and of course there is "Rooftops of Tehran". Don't you just love those good finds?

  5. About a Boy is the only book I have read from your list. I remember enjoying it, but I think it was one of those rare instances where I liked the movie more.

  6. That's a terrific stack o'books. I'm looking forward to reading your reviews. Happy reading!

  7. Fantastic finds!

    I haven't read any of these books, though I did see the movie for About a Boy. I didn't care for it as much as I did High Fidelity.
