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)
