Mailbox Monday 20th March 2011

Mailbox Monday is a meme which was originally hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page. It is now on tour and this month's host is Library of Clean Reads. Please go and have a look and link up with this meme and tell fellow bloggers what came into your house this week.

Here is my Mailbox Monday for this week.

This was a win from Jennifer of I am a Reader not a Writer. Her book depository card gave me this book. I could not believe it when I found it in the Bargain Books section for under $10!!!




Continuing with my purchase of The Morland Dynasty books (only one review up) these four were also purchased from my church sale.

I have been lax in my reading this last week. Work got in the way and their has been more than a fair share of out of town work. That generally knocks my reading schedule as I come back home only fit to sleep! A visit to the Negombo orphanage on Saturday was important with a consignment of dry fish (the closest equivalent would be smoked fish) but this one is very salty
and savory - took 30 kgs there but it will finish very fast!!! A visit also to Thoduwawa (where our fishermen reside) and from where the dry fish originates actually so it was a busy week.

Hopefully this week will see me finish a Virginia Woolf and an absolutely (for me) unknown Sri Lankan author whose memoir of his life in Italy is funny and catchy and just what I need right now.

Happy reading everyone.

Congrats on the win!

I really like the covers for the Morland Dynasty. You're very lucky to have these church sales. Waiting for the local church book sales to start up in spring.

The cover for Started Early, Took My Dog is totally different than the US cover. I hope you love your new books!

Interesting books. But can understand why you didn't get much reading done, it sounds like you had a very busy week.

I love Kate Atkinson's books...so twisted and fascinating. Those titles are something else, aren't they? LOL

Hope you enjoy all of your books...and thanks for visiting my blog.

I want to read Started Early, Took My Dog... but I should read Case Histories first. It's been sitting on my shelf for a year now.
