Mailbox Monday

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

Dolce Bellezza is hosting in June, where she also just launched the seventh Japanese Literature Challenge.  Be sure to visit her elegant and inspiring blog.

While I was in Davenport, Iowa for work last week, I went to the local library where they had a Friends of the Library sale shelf.  I found several, including and M.F.K. Fisher I've been looking for for a while.

The Oasis by Mary McCarthy (I want to read more of her books)


The A. B. C. Murders by Agatha Christie (I'm on a roll)


Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman by Elizabeth Buchan (looked like a fun book for summer)


All That Work and Still No Boys by Kathryn Ma (winner of the Iowa Short Fiction Award)


Sister Age by M. F. K. Fisher (essays on growing old)


  1. I look forward to your impressions of the M.F.K. Fisher essays. Maybe they will tell me whether I'm aging gracefully?

  2. Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman and All That Work and Still No Boys both appeal to me!

  3. The Oasis looks really interesting. Such a simple cover. But there's just something about it.

  4. How fun to find a book at the library sale!

  5. I enjoyed The Revenge Of The Middle Aged Housewife when I read it years ago. Thank you for the kind words about my blog.

  6. The Oasis looks good.

    I laughed out loud when I saw the title: Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman.

    ENJOY your books.
