After spending most of a very fun day antiquing in charming Aurora, Oregon, I stopped by one of my favorite library book stores, Second Hand Prose in Oregon City. I ended up with a nice stack of books for my Mailbox Monday list.
When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson (this is the third in her Jackson Brodie series and I am so looking forward to it)
Uncommon Arrangements: Seven Portraits of Married Life in London Literary Circles 1910 - 1939 by Katie Roiphe (this looks fascinating and would count for one of my Bibliophilic Books Challenge books)
I, the King by Frances Parkinson Keyes (my mom was a big FPK fan growing up and she got me reading them years ago)
A Maggot by John Fowles (I have trepidation because, while I loved The French Lieutenant's Woman, I absolutely could not stand The Magus)
Clouds of Witness by Dorothy L. Sayers (I only recently read my first Sayers book and now I want to gobble them all)
Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively (I've already read this Booker Prize winner, but I did not have a copy and it is one I may like to read again)
The End of My Career by Miles Franklin (I've gathered several volumes of her memoirs based only only enjoying the movie version of My Brilliant Career when I was in high school)
More Matter: Essays and Criticism by John Updike (another contender for the Bibliophilic Books Challenge)
What books came into your house last week?
