Mailbox Monday - 20th June

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Hosted in June at The Bluestocking Guide


This book was a gift from a friend in Australia. I have been wanting to visit Varanasi (the picture of the ghats on the cover is from Varanasi) so I just grabbed it almost before it was given to me.



This was a gift from Mary (Bookfan) who out of the blue sent me this. I very, very seldom read the very latest that has come out unless I am in Melbourne visiting the children. Even in Melbourne this book was just "on order" when I was there last. So I am so lucky to get this. Thank you Mary.

I hope your mailboxes were equally interesting.

Oh I love it when I get some surprise or letter in the mail! We loose so much joy these days by not having the gift of writing a note by hand!

I love the covers on both of them; hope the content is just as good! It's nice to win a prize, isn't it? Especially when it's hard to find the book you've won.

I love Mary and her kindness knows no bounds! A bug hug to you and Mary!

PS Varanasi is incredible for its religious significance and my husband loved it there. I spent 2 years in India and never got to go. Oh well next time!

Enjoy the reads :)
