Mailbox Monday & GIVEAWAY Reminder

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).

Lori at Lori's Reading Corner is hosting in January.  Please visit her fun blog for giveaways, reviews, and lots more.

GIVEAWAY REMINDER: You still have today to enter the giveaway for On the Rocks: A Willa Cather and Edith Lewis Mystery by Sue Hallgarth, a historic, literary mystery that is the first of what looks like a terrific new series.

Thanks go to book publicist Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy, and copies for a giveaway! The book is available on amazon or, better yet, ask your local bookstore to order it!

MY BOOKS: Thanks to a little browsing at my favorite Second Glance Books, I found a few mysteries that caught my fancy.  Cold, grey Januaries always put me in the mood to read mysteries.

Light Thickens by Ngaio Marsh. I read one of her mysteries last year and now want to read them all.

Upon a Dark Night by Peter Lovesey. I've been gathering his Peter Diamond mysteries -- it's time to start reading them.

The Man from Beijing by Henning Mankell.  A stand-alone mystery by the author of the Wallender series. I love the tv version with Kenneth Branaugh.

And I got an irresistible book with drawings of letters by David Hockney, each accompanied by an essay by a famous author.  How cool!

Hockney's Alphabet by David Hockney.


  1. I've read a lot of good things about Ngaio Marsh. I hope you love your new books!

  2. I started reading Ngaio Marsh probably about 10 years ago but then started running up against out of print titles and had to stop. This was, of course, in the earlier days of internet bookstores so I really should start looking for those books again and build my collection (and read and re-read!).
