I picked up two books at BookMarx in Springfield, Missouri when I was there for work last week. What books came into your house last week?
Vladimir Nabokov's Lectures on Literature, edited by Fredson Bowers, introduction by John Updike. This is a collection of Nabokov's lectures to undergraduates on Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, Bleak House by Charles Dickens, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Luis Stevenson, Swann's Way by Marcel Proust, "The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka, and Ulysses by James Joyce.
The Broken Estate: Essays on Literature and Belief by James Wood. I bought this on an impulse and suspect it will be a long time before I get to it.
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.
Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
