I have a long list for Mailbox Monday, even though only one came in the mail. This week, I am also participating in Story Siren's version, In My Mailbox, although I should have posted it on Sunday.
Read, Remember, Recommend: A Reading Journal for Book Lovers by Rachelle Rogers Knight
Rachelle, aka Bibliobabe, got me a review copy of her fantastic book journal. It is just the thing for a list-obsessed reader like me. Thanks Rachelle!
After our big trial win on Friday, I was ready to celebrate, which I did with a little book shopping spree at my favorite used bookstore, Second Glance Books.
Encyclopedia Prehistorica Dinosaurs: The Definitive Pop-Up by Robert Sabuda (I don't have kids and I have no real interest in dinasaurs, but I love creative books and this one is amazing)
Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe by Sandra Gulland (on my French Connection list, but the second in the trilogy, which means I have to find the other two)
Larry's Party by Carol Shields (Orange Prize winner)
The World of Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse (an omnibus edition of all the Jeeves short stories -- thank goodness, because I am always losing track of which ones I've read)
If on a Winter's Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino (because it is one one of my lists, but I can't remember which one)
Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter (on the Erica Jong list)
The Waterfall by Margaret Drabble (also on the Erica Jong list)
Journey to Portugal: In Pursuit of Portugal's History and Culture by Jose Saramago (in a nice hardback edition; I'm trying to read a book by all the Nobel Laureates)
The Message to the Planet by Iris Murdoch
Erica Jong list
