Mailbox Monday 18th April 2011

Mailbox Monday is a meme that was created by Marcia of The Printed Page. It is right now on tour. This months host is Passages to the Past. The meme brings together book bloggers and we all get an insight of what books have come to your house either purchased, borrowed or gifted.
It is always a pleasant surprise to find out special finds and books recommended by like minded bloggers.


Begins 1772. George III. American War of Independence. My knowledge of this war is sketchy so this is going to be a bit of an education as well.


Begins 1558 - Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots. A tumultuous period in history.


Period 1501 - Henry VIII - going back a bit from my earlier books by the same author.



This was a win from Marce of Tea Time with Marce. A thriller - described as grimly realistic action. I need to read something different.
This was a win from Heather of Book Addict. Thanks Heather.


On a non book note, the New Year holidays are OVER. We have had nine glorious days of doing nothing at home. Now to get back to work on Monday is going to be tough.
