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).
Abi at 4 the Love of Books is hosting in May. Please visit her fun, inspirational blog.
Two random books came into my house last week, both from books lists I'm working on.
Death and the Joyful Woman by Ellis Peters. This is the second book in the Inspector Felse series and it won the Edgar Award in 1963. I have the first book in the series, Fallen into the Pit, already on my TBR shelf.
Trust by Cynthia Ozick. I have never read anything by her, but this one -- her fist novel -- is on the Erica Jong list of Top 100 20th Century Novels by Women. The amazon reviews don't do it any favors.
What books came into your house last week?

They both sound interesting.ReplyDelete
Trust is very appealing--I read the Amazon blurb, and it strikes me a very Edith Whartonesque!ReplyDelete
The Ellis Peters one should be good as well.
I will have to look into those, they both look very interesting.ReplyDelete
I received two new German books this week "The Magic Mountain" (Der Zauberberg) by Thomas Mann and "Die hellen Tage" by Zsuzsa Bánk
