Several books came into my house last week, three even came in the mailbox in time for Mailbox Monday. This week, I am also participating in Story Siren's version, In My Mailbox.
A Small Fortune by Audrey Braun (see here for my description, because I've already started this one)
The New York Stories by Elizabeth Hardwick (from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program)
The Garden Book, published by Phaidon (a treat for myself from Ampersand, my favorite artsy bookstore, after we won the first phase of our big trial)
A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks (another from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program -- I double dipped last month)

Bermuda -- The Faulks book does look good. I am looking forward to it, although I haven't read anything about it yet. Other than the cover.ReplyDelete
Alayne -- Thanks for visiting and leaving a link!
Beth -- I will, thanks! I'd like to start by sitting in a big chair with a pot of tea and looking at every single garden picture in the garden book.
Those are all great books! I think it is great that you are reading something by someone you know. On top of that, it sounds like a great book!ReplyDelete
Love that cover for A Small Fortune! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!ReplyDelete
You've got some good books. I haven't seen any of them on other blogs yet. Thanks for visiting my blog today! Enjoy your reads.ReplyDelete
Felicia -- It is really good! I wish I could sit and read it straight through.ReplyDelete
LadyQ -- I like the cover too. Her husband is a marketing/advertising guy and he designed it. Thanks for visiting.
Laura -- I'd like a week off to read all the books that came last week. They all appeal to me. Thanks for visiting.
Those all look great to me but A Week in December particular peaks my interest! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
