Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).
MariReads is hosting in May. Please visit her wonderful blog, where even the banner picture will inspire you to read a good book.
I hit a couple of library sale shelves when I was out and about last week, snagging an Anthony Powell I've been searching for, filling in some of my books lists, and finding some new mysteries to try:
Afternoon Men by Anthony Powell. His Dance to the Music of Time is my favorite "book" if you can call a 12-volume series one book. I've been looking for this non-Dance book for quite a while.
Death of an Expert Witness by P. D. James (the 6th Adam Dalgliesh mystery; mine has a different cover than the one below).
Death in Holy Orders by P. D. James (the 11th Adam Dalgliesh mystery).
Hangman's Holiday (1933) by Dorothy L. Sayers (published in 1933; short stories, 4 with Lord Peter Wimsey).
Rough Country by John Sandford (a new one for me; I know nothing about it or the author).
Arctic Chill by Arnaldur Indridason (another new one for me; part of a series set in Reykjavik, Iceland).
