Mailbox Monday


I am still in trial (which means I am still whining about being in trial), but a couple of books still managed to make it into my house in time for Mailbox Monday. Funny how there is always some excuse to buy a book!

Fraud by Anita Brookner (because I liked her Incidents in the Rue Laugier, reviewed here, and want to read more)



Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon



A friend saw this at my house, said she had read it in college a few years back and really liked it, but didn't think it was a book that "old people" would read. I threw her in the dungeon.

  6. Thanks for the visits and the comments.

    And Carin, thanks for the award. I'll come over as soon as I come up for air -- I'm still at work getting ready for a mid-trial hearing tomorrow morning.

    As for that "friend" -- I think I'll let her out of the dungeon when she turns 40. :)

  11. I find an Anita Brookner every 6 months is just about the right dose for her for me-!
