Mailbox Monday - 2nd May 2011

Mailbox Monday is on tour - the original host was Marcia of The Printed Page. This month's host is Mari Reads. The books thrown up from the blogs are so interesting because you do find what you like in your own genre and then the wanting to read it begins!!! makes for interesting times.

This weeks Mailbox was a bit late as I went out of Colombo and have just returned home. Today is a holiday as May Day fell on a Sunday!!! so glad for these additional days.


Read her books before and who wouldn't want to read something as titillating as this.
I was looking for Iris Murdoch for simply ages. This just popped up and though its been around a while I still liked the title! I think its the convent educated part of me still lingering on.


Have a good week everyone.

I got the Kate Atkinson but a few weeks ago form my mother. She thought I should read it. I think I read it before, but will probably read it again. Atkinson writes really well.

Great-looking books! I've been wanting to read Iris Murdoch for quite awhile! I love Kate Atkinson's books, but haven't read this one yet.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I have never read Kate Atkinson, but I see her books get uniformly good reviews around the blogosphere..
Hope you enjoy both your books this week :)

I quite like the sound of Behind the Scenes, I don't even need to know anything else about it!

You have Iris Murdoch!

I will be looking to hear on how you liked this one.

PS big book sales this weekend... I so hope that I can find some amazing deals like you ;)

I like the cover of the Murdoch novel -- seems like it is about two women friends/sisters.
