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


Mailbox Monday is on tour. Host for August is 5 Minutes for books.

A friend of mine came over from Australia for a short visit. I am delighted that now with the war firmly behind us, more and more friends and family are constantly visiting. It is also good for our
local economy to have tourists back in this country. She brought me two delightful books.





I like books set in colonial India and now I have a mix of the best. Old and the very new. I have read Chetan Bhagat and I found his insights into the new India of the call centers very interesting so I am looking forward to this one.


This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Right now I am reading Tracy Chevalier's Burning Bright.



Thank you Rebecca for this win.

My daughter is home for just three weeks and it is always hectic when she is around. Reading however is going on apace but reviews are coming up slowly!

We have visitors all summer long here too - and it's a blast, but I'm exhausted after they leave! Hope you find time for some reading and have a fantastic time while your daughter is visiting.
