Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

The Library of Clean Reads is hosting in February.

I ended up with a fun selection of books last week:

The Leaves of Fate by George Robert Minkoff, the third volume of his In the Land of Whispers trilogy about Jamestown and America's earliest days.  I understand that this one is good on its own, but being the completist that I am, I'll have to get the first two, The Weight of Smoke and The Dragons of the Storm

Murder in the Library of Congress by Margaret Truman, because I am on a vintage mystery jag.

Assignment in Brittany by Helen MacInnes, because vintage espionage is part of the same jag.

The Biographer's Moustache and The Folks That Live on the Hill, both by Kingsley Amis.

Karen Brown's Germany: Exceptional Places to Stay & Itineraries, to help me plan a trip to Bavaria.

  3. What an interesting variety of books! The Biographer's Moustache piques my interest.

  4. You have a nice haul here. Enjoy the reading.

  5. The Leaves of Fate looks especially good to me. I can hardly wait to read your thoughts on it.

    I received 3 books. One was my most coveted of 2011.

  6. The Germany book looks very beautiful! Could I hide in your suitcase and tag along on your trip?

  7. My father in law used to love Margaret Truman's mysteries--I keep on forgetting to give her a try. Looks like a great set of books.

  8. The vintage books look great!
