Mailbox Monday - 29th November 2010 being posted on Sunday



I have stuff to do tomorrow so I thought I will post this well in time on Sunday night!

"Mailbox Monday" is the brainchild of Marcia at The Printed Page.

Mailbox Monday is now on a blog tour.


This month's host is Knitting and Sundries. Visit every week this month to see links to the latest and greatest books arriving in mailboxes! Be aware, though, visiting can lead to book envy and toppling TBR piles! There are giveaways also on her site so please go visit.


December's host will be Lady Q at Let Them Read Books! So be certain to stop by her blog and show her some love!

"In My Mailbox" is hosted by The Story Siren

Every week we'll post about what books we have that week (via your mailbox/library/store bought)! Everyone that agrees to participate will try to visit each other's list and leave comments! Everyone is welcome to join! You can join at anytime and you DO NOT have to participate every week.

My mailbox is better than last this and totally dependent on my library at Carnegie in Melbourne. The first up is



a description of the book calls it a compassionate masterpiece and a Christmas story in the manner of Dickens. This is what drew me. I have already started reading so this will be the first review up.

The second book is The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano. This has received good positive reviews. For some reason I am unable to upload the picture of the cover of this book! I had been trying to get this book and for weeks it has been out and not being returned on time. At last.

The other two books are both Agatha Christie which for me are really comfort reading!

Appointment with Death and The Moving Finger. I like to go back to Agatha Christie
and read them again. Somehow the books and story for me are not boring!

A happy reading week but this will be topped up mid week I am sure as I have so many books I want to read before I leave Melbourne!

Sabrina @ about happy books said...

Love Agatha Christie, her books are always a good choice.
Libraries are such happy places but I don't go there often because in Germany they mostly have German books (of course) but I prefer English books.

Have fun reading!

Mary said...

I hope you get to read many library books before you leave Melbourne! I'm going to look up Fallen Angel :)

I need to read Agatha Christie - what would you recommend to start with?

Mari said...

Love Agatha Christie. Enjoy.

Alyce said...

I like the idea of reading Agatha Christie mysteries, but haven't been in the right mood to read mysteries lately. Every time I start one of her books I get distracted.

Aisle B said...

I recognize the actor on the book Fallen Angel. At least I think I do... isn't he the main CSI agent from CSI NY???

Enjoy the Christie bookd and Solitude of Prime Numbers :)

Mrs. Q: Book Addict said...

Enjoy your new books. I haven't read any Agatha Christie yet.

Kaye said...

You can never ever go wrong with Christie! They are books that can be read over and over again. Have a good week and happy reading.

Lady Q said...

Fallen Angel looks like a good one! I have never read Agatha Christie! Hope you enjoy your books! Thanks for visiting my Mailbox!

I love Agatha Christie too but haven't read them in a while (although I always make it a point to watch them on tv!) I'm curious about Solitude of Prime Numbers too as I've heard a lot about it. Looking forward to your review!

Kate {The Parchment Girl} said...

Looks like an interesting book! Hope you enjoy it!

Fallen Angel sounds like a perfect seasonal read!

avisannschild said...

I keep meaning to read more Agatha Christies (I read loads of them when I was a teen) -- I don't think I've read either of the ones you got. Enjoy & thanks for visiting my Mailbox!

Suko said...

I would like to read Agatha Christie again as well. Enjoy all of your books, Mystica!

Leslie @ Under My Apple Tree said...

It's been ages since I read any Agatha Christie. I can't remember which ones I read so they would probably all be new to me now. I do remember enjoying them though.

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

I have not read Fallen Angel but I did see the movie they made from the book. It was pretty good. I'll have to check out your review on the book. Enjoy all your new reads!

Julie @ Knitting and Sundries said...

Fallen Angel does indeed sound wonderful! I've heard good things about The Solitude of Prime Numbers; I hope you enjoy it! AND Agatha Christie is always fun! Thanks for sharing!
