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).

I'm Booking It is hosting in March.

A lot of books came into my house last week. One I won in a giveaway on Knitting and Sundries -- Thanks Julie!

Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane

I found several at Booktique in Lake Oswego, one of my favorite Friends of the Library book stores:

The Black Book by Ian Rankin (because I have only just now "discovered" his John Rebus series and am obsessed)

The Private Patient by P. D. James (because I have decided to tackle the whole Adam Dalgliesh series)

Snobs by Julian Fellows (because it looks like guilty pleasure)

The Hour: A Cocktail Manifesto by Bernard DeVoto (an irresistible reprint from Tin House Books)

And I picked up a few from the paperback swap shelf at the University Club when I was there for my partner meeting (small compensation for a LONG meeting).  I took books only, so will have to leave books when I am back for our next meeting.

Resurrection Men by Ian Rankin (see above re: new John Rebus obsession)

Venetian Mask by Mickey Friedman (to add to my list of Venice books)

The Bookman's Promise by John Dunning (it looks interesting and I have a weakness for immaculate pocket paperbacks)


  1. P D James is always excellent!

  2. Wow, great books there! I really enjoyed the couple of Rankin Rebus books I've read, and need to get back to the series. I also need to read The Private Patient, I think I'm caught up on the series to that point.

    I think I read (and enjoyed) a book by Dunning years ago, I wish I could remember more.

    Enjoy your reading!

  3. Enjoy all of your books, stop and see mine.

  4. I have read every Ian Ranking and LOVED each one. I am only sad that the series is (most probably) finished.

    Rankin is actually going to be at Murder by the Book tonight, and I'm going to do my darndest to make it. I live about an hour and a half away, but I would so love to meet him.

  5. Mystica: I have only read the first two in the AD series. I am looking forward to reading all of them.

    blog: Dunning is totally new for me. It looks really good.

    RAnn: Thanks!

    TBM: Thanks -- I will stop by.

    PG: I am excited to find a new series. Will he be at the Murder by the Book here in Portland? He isn't on the calendar.

  6. These all look good! Here is my mailbox monday:

  7. You got a lot of interesting books last week!

  8. All are my kind of books!

    Look forward to read your reviews! AS usual, for the some weeks, I got none!

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  9. I'm fairly new to Ian Rankin's John Rebus, but I love them. And the Bookman series is near and dear to my heart, being a Colorado native, I know every place he describes.

  10. From all of these comments, I'm thinking that I may be missing out by not having picked up one or more of the Rankin books! :) Enjoy Moonlight Mile; it was a fun to read book!

  11. Moonlight Mile sounds like a good read. Congratulations on your win!

  12. Great books - I love the cover of The Black Book. Enjoy!
