I had a busy book week, so my Mailbox Monday list is long (so long, I'm putting it up early).
First, Unbridled Books sent me A Geography of Secrets by Fredrick Reuss and, even though it is going on my Guilt List, it looks terrific. I can't wait to get to it.
Then, I went to the Great Northwest Benefit Book Sale and ended up with a crazy mix of books:
The Scottish Novels by Robert Lewis Stevenson (because I recently read Treasure Island and want to read more RLS)
Poems of John Donne (because I liked them in college -- at least that one about the flea -- and the cover was so adorable)
The Unconsoled by Kazuo Ishiguro (because he is a genius)
A Time of Hope by C. P. Snow (because I am gathering this edition of the Strangers and Brothers series)
Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson (because she is a new favorite)
Dancing at the Rascal Fair by Ivan Doig (because I've always meant to read at least one of his books)
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann (because it won the National Book Award)
Making It Up by Penelope Lively (because she is an old favorite)
The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford (because I want to re-read this one and I loved the cover)
World Without End by Ken Follett (because I loved Pillars of the Earth and it is time for me to get to the sequel)
That Old Cape Magic and Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo (because I liked Empire Falls and want to read more of his books)
