Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

Marie at Burton Book Review is hosting in June.  Please stop by her beautiful blog where she is "Leafing through history one page at a time."

Thanks to Rachelle at my favorite Second Glance Books, I got a stack of books last week, several that I have been looking for for a long time. 

Death at the Chateau Bremont by M. L. Longworth (this was an impulse -- I couldn't resist the cover)

Excellent Women by Barbara Pym (on the Erica Jong list)

Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels (Orange Prize winner)

Innocence by Penelope Fitzgerald (one of my favorite authors)

English Passengers by Matthew Kneale (Costa Book of the Year winner)

Saint Joan of Arc by V. Sackville-West (on my French Connections list)

Hole in the Sky: A Memoir by William Kittredge (on the list of 20 Greatest Oregon Books)


  1. I love the books you chose though I had not heard of them before. Enjoy!

  2. HL: That's why I love playing with my lists -- I find books I would never otherwise read. Sometimes I don't like them, but I've found some real favorites too.

  3. Thanks for the shout out RE:my little home on the web.

    I'll have to look up Penelope Fitgerald!

  4. Death at the Chateau Bremont has been on my wishlist for a while. Just haven't gotten to it yet. Hope you enjoy all your new books.

  5. I see several titles that would be hard to resist! Enjoy your new books!

  6. Fugitive Pieces has been on my to-read list for awhile. These all look good. Enjoy!

  7. I think they all look great so I hope you enjoy them!
