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).

Jennifer at Mrs. Q: Book Addict is hosting in July.  Please stop by her fun and pretty blog to see what she has been reading.

It is garage sale season, so I found several books last week:

The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan (even though I saw the movie and hated it, I am a completist when it comes to McEwan; and it goes on my list of Venice books)

Bobos In Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There by David Brooks (I am always a little behind on my pop culture)

Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie (to feed my vintage mystery addiction)

The Patriotic Murders by Agatha Christie (also published as One, Two, Buckle My Shoe and An Overdose of Death)

Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson (got this one for Hubby -- it is right up his alley)


  1. You got some really good books, especially the Christies. Have a fun, safe 4th and as always, happy reading!

  2. I bet Bobos in Paradise is fascinating. Enjoy!

  3. I love Cristie's Cat Among the Pigeons and I believe PBS will be showing it at some point this week on Masterpiece Mystery.

  4. I read The Comfort of Strangers for the Venice in February challenge this winter, and it was anything but comforting! It was a bizarre book, much like something Daphne du Maurier would write, and although I can't say that I loved it I can say it held my interest. I don't think I'll ever forget it! (Perhaps you'd like to read Du Maurier's Don't Look Now afterward, which is similar but in my opinion better.)

  5. They sound like good finds,enjoy!

  6. These are all new to me. I hope you enjoy them all. Happy reading!
