Additional Mailbox Monday

I had a delightful addition to the above today. This was such a nice surprise as I did not realize I had collected points on my credit card which I utilized  at the bookstore. And all for nice, crisp, clean, sparkly new books.

The books I picked up were ones I had been eyeing for ages!

Rosamund Lupton's SISTER


The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

Mark Haddon's book has got intriguing reviews on several blogs.

And for a taste of history. Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose


I have been in such a reading slump these last two weeks but hopefully these new additions will get me back on track.

OOh, some good 'classics' -- modern classics, I suppose. Kate Morton is marvelous, I've heard!

Isn't it a wonderful feeling to acquire news books...There is something about looking at the cover, checking out the resume on the back cover, imagine the contents, then sit down in your favourite chair and very carefully open the first page...Ah the dreams...
Thank you for sharing your choices!
Blessings to you and yours,

I liked the Haddon book - very different.

I like the look of the first two covers - the similarity of the long paths.

I've been meaning to read the last two for ages. To be honest, the thought of diving into Umberto Eco intimidates me!
