Mailbox Monday is the brainchild of Marcia of The Printed Page. It is now on a blog tour. Last month the host was Knitting and Sundries and for December it is Lady Q at Let Them Read Books.
In my Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren.
Every week we post what books we have received - either thru our library/purchase/a win or a gift! Those who link to the meme should try to visit each others blogs and leave some comment. It is not compulsory that you participate every week.
This week too my books are courtesy of my local library in Carnegie, Melbourne. For some reason my computer is playing up and not uploading the pictures of the books properly so I will only give you the list.
Joanna Trollope's - The Other Family. Normally Joanna Trollope writes stories of human relationships in idyllic country surroundings. This time the relationship part is very evident but not the countryside. The story is riveting.
Barbara Pym's Excellent Women - a new author for me. I like the time period in which she writes and have tried to read as much as possible of this period whilst I have been here in Melbourne. I will not be able to get this kind of books back in Sri Lanka.
Barbara Erskine's -Times Legacy - another recommendation of a blogger. It looks good. Set in the fenlands of Western England sounds mysterious.
Agatha Christie 's The Body in the Library - ideal for this period when I need a real comfort read.
Christmas was to put it mildly uneventful but today Boxing Day I hit the sales. Not a thing I have ever done before as we do not have this in Sri Lanka. I loved it!!!
