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).
This month, Mailbox Monday moves north, to somewhere near Quebec, where Cindy at Cindy's Love of Books is hosting. Please stop by to visit her blog and join in the fun.
A lot of books came into my house last week, thanks mostly to a Multnomah County Library Friends' sale.
A few of my favorites are:
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
Picked-Up Pieces by John Updike (essays and criticism)
The Flood by Ian Rankin (his first book, reissued; not a John Rebus novel)
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert (a cool, Modern Library edition with dustjacket!)
Nobody Move by Denis Johnson (great cover and I really liked Tree of Smoke)

I love friends of the library sales because you can always find that one little hidden gem in the pile. You found some great books. EnjoyReplyDelete
Library book sales are like treasure hunts, you never know what you'll find, but there's gold in them thar stacks!ReplyDelete

Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors - I bet The Lacuna is great. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I must try some Denis Johnson. Updike's kind of a cutie with that mop of dark hair. Cute in the Ringo sort of way.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed The Lacuna but Madame Bovary annoyed me too much. That was a good sale, I'd have bought the Rankin and Updike too.ReplyDelete
