Mailbox New Year's Eve

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 event (details here).

Suko's Notebook is hosting in December, including this last MM of 2012.  Please visit her lovely and thoughtful blog.

Santa brought several books to our house last week. The funniest was in Hubby's stocking:

I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats by Francesco Marciuliano (who must have ghost written it for our two tabbies).

The rest were books for me that I wanted or my husband knew I would like:

Stalking Nabokov by Brian Boyd, who wrote a two-volume biography of Nabakov.  These are essays he's written since then.

Political Woman: The Big Little Life of Jeane Kirkpatrick by Peter Collier. This looks fascinating. And I once met Kirkpatrick in the AEI lunchroom so we have that close, personal connection.  (Insert sarcastic emoticon here.)

STET, Damnit!: The Misanthrope's Corner 1991 to 2002 and Deja Reviews: Florence King All Over Again: Selections from National Review and The American Spectator by Florence King. I always enjoyed her columns.

Alger Hiss: Why He Chose Treason by Christina Shelton. This caught my eye when I was reading Witness earlier this year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Happy 2013 reading!


  1. First, I think the woodland mailbox is charming!

    Good set of books from wimsey to serious. Jeane Kirkpatrick would be interesting to read about, for sure, as well as the Alger Hiss book.
