Mailbox Monday

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).


  1. I love P.D. James. Death in Holy Orders was sooo good. John Sandford books scare the living daylights out of me. Have fun reading these.

  2. Uh oh! I don't like scary at all. The Sandford book is getting re-donated to the library.

  3. I hope the rest of your books are not so scary and good reads. I love those library sale shelves!

  4. I'm always looking for books that are actually scary, so I'll have to keep Sandford in mind.

    Looks like you found some good books. Enjoy!

  5. I need more mystery books for my shelves. I will definitely look into them. Someone had recommended the Suzanne Collins trilogy and I got hooked. So maybe one of these will peek my interest as well.

  6. Death In Holy Orders sounds good, enjoy! your books.

  7. I'm a fan of PD James and John Sandford, so I think you're in for some good reading.

  8. One of my good friends is a big fan of both James and Sanford so I know you'll probably enjoy those books!
