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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
Santa only brought me one book, but a stack of books came into my house last week.
The Days Trilogy, Expanded Edition by H. L. Mencken. Santa brought me this one because I read a great review of it by Terry Teachout.
An always-popular Christmas gift at our house is a big bag of books from the Friends of the Library book store. As always, I ended up with a stack for myself!
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. I've wanted to read this for a long time.
The Stranger House by Reginald Hill. This is a stand-alone by the author of a popular British crime series that I haven't read. I figured this would give me an idea of his style.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Another one that's been on my radar a long time.
Under the Eye of the Storm by John Hersey. I loved the mid-century cover!
After Christmas, I stopped in at Crooked House Books & Paper to see my friend Rachelle. She was holding the vintage cookbook for me because I saw it on her facebook page and I found the two M. F. K. Fisher books among her many treasures. She has loyal customers all over the world, so check out her on-line inventory and make friends!
The Glamour Magazine After Five Cookbook by Beverly Pepper
Dubious Honors by M. F. K. Fisher
A Welcoming Life: The M.F.K. Fisher Scrapbook compiled and annotated by Dominique Gioia. The picture is misleading because this is more a coffee table book.
