Mailbox Monday

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.


  1. The MFK Fisher books interest me. She figured prominently (along with Julia Child and James Beard) in a book I read earlier this year.
    Happy New Year!

  2. The Glamour cookbook looks absolutely adorable. Hope you enjoy it as well as the rest of your books. Happy reading!!

  3. Very nice mailbox.

    I like the looks of Under the Eye of the Storm.

    ENJOY your books, and Happy New Year!!
