MAILBOX MONDAY/IT'S MONDAY WHAT ARE YOU READING?




Mailbox Monday hosted for January by Alyce from At Home with Books.
It's Monday What Are You Reading hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. 

This is my last week in Melbourne. I leave on Sunday back to Colombo. The books that I got from the library were
















All these books have been selected because of book blogger's recommendations and reviews. I have already finished The Kashmir Shawl and this would be my second book for the 2012 South Asian Challenge.

Presently reading An Accomplished Woman - a cross between Georgette Heyer and a bit of Austen thrown in!

I am very keen on the Daphne book. There was a movie on her and I missed it so this book was a real bonanza for me.

Awaiting me at home in Colombo apart from my husband is the undersigned!

I don't think I can resist a book described as Georgette with a bit of Jane. I'll have to check that one out. The dog is adorable :) Happy reading!

I'm always so happy to see people saying the books they picked are based on recommendations! It makes what we do feel so worthwhile!

I hope you have a fantastic week (and such a cute dog!)

Your books look good. I wonder what you'll think of the Jo Walton book. I've only read her newest (Amongst Others) and I'm curious to know what her other books are like.
