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)
Diary of an Eccentric is hosting in March. Please stop by her terrific blog to see what this "eccentric bookworm" is reading lately.
I got a mix of books last week:
Prague Fatale by Philip Kerr. This is the 6th book in his Bernie Gunther series. I haven't read the others, but this looked really good and I was lucky enough to get an ARC from the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.
The Free World by David Bezmozgis. Late '70s Soviet Russia -- looks great!I was lucky enough to get a review copy from the Internet Review of Books. Mine has a different cover on it, but I like this one, the real one, better.
And I got two adorable books from the new BabyLit series -- "A Series of Board Books for Brilliant Babies" by Jennifer Adams. These are fabulous! They were too cute to pass up and I plan to pass them along to a nascent reader on my list -- it's never to young to turn a kid on to great literature!
Alice in Wonderland: A Colors Primer by Jennifer Adams
Jane Eyre: A Counting Primer by Jennifer Adams

I have the Austen Babylit book and thought it cute. Didn't know there was a Jane Eyre version, but I should've expected it :)ReplyDelete
Like the cover of Prague Fatale.
Prague Fatale and the baby books look wonderful! Happy reading!ReplyDelete
