It is a short Mailbox Monday list this week, because only one book came into my house:
People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
I was a little bored by March (my review is here), although Brooks won the Pulitzer Prize for it, so I was reluctant to read this one. But I've now read several reviews and I've been converted -- it sounds great.
It will count as one of my Bibliopholic Books.

I have read several good reviews for this book. I hope you enjoy this one!ReplyDelete
Thanks Beth! I read just the first page and I really want to dive in. But there are several books I need to get to first. My Guilt List is getting too long!ReplyDelete
Looks like a great book! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.ReplyDelete
People of the Book is suppose to be great; enjoy. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
I never heard of this one.ReplyDelete
Here is mine
I enjoyed this book, though some reviewers didn't care for the personal life of the protagonist getting tangled into the story.ReplyDelete
"March," I read and thought well-written, but very presumptuous in the way it took great liberties with Mr. March, making him into some one the original author would not have approved up.
Two books for me last week. You can seem them here.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy this one more than March (which I have but haven't read yet)!ReplyDelete
Brooks is an author I'd like to read at some point! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Here's my Mailbox.
I liked People of the Book. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great week and happy reading. Here's my mailboxReplyDelete
I've read award-winners like that- everyone seemed to love them but me! I hope that this one is better for you, and I'll look for your review!ReplyDelete
People of the Book sounds interesting. I enjoy reading works that shift in time, with multiple plot lines.ReplyDelete
I have People of the Book. It is supposed to be good! Here's what I got this week.ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the comments! I have been swamped today with trial prep, but will go on a round of visits as soon as I come up for air.ReplyDelete
I'm nearly halfway there on the Radcliffe - 47! I was pleasantly surprised.ReplyDelete
I have this one on my shelf waiting to be read so I look forward to your thoughts on it. I read a non-fiction book by Brooks earlier this year and liked it.ReplyDelete
I juist finished it and, while it wasn't the most well written book I've ever read, I found that I really enjoyed the story. I love history and the preservation of books, so I really loved how she traced the history of the book. It is loosely based on a real haggadah whose illustrations can be found online. I really enjoyed looking at those!ReplyDelete
