Mailbox Monday hosted for November by Bermudaonion.
Only one book came to my house this week given by a friend - this Daphne du Maurier is unknown to me so I was delighted to receive this.
The next meme for Monday is It'sMonday! What Are You Reading hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
I have several reads going on at once. An Elizabeth George totally different from the rambling English countryside or a bleak moor setting but an urban sprawl complete with squats, squalor and all and the Julian Rathbone from last week which is slow reading but which I am hopeful of finishng one of these days.
Going back to my children's Christmas shopping, today was another marathon - six of them wanted dolls, three wanted doctor sets, one wanted a bead jewellery set and three wanted specifically Winnie the Pooh teddy bears. Got it all except the latter. Now have to look for them plus thirteen of them still have no special dresses for Christmas. Somehow I couldn't find clothes for the 12 to 14 year olds.
Ooh, enjoy the Daphne du Maurier!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy your new book!ReplyDelete
When my son was 3 or 4 (he's now 29), his grandmother made him a Winnie the Pooh bear. He loved it. I hope you can find some for the little ones!
I really need to try one of her books - I'm not familiar with that title. I'm going to spend today shopping with my sister.ReplyDelete
I thought I had read every DuMaurier book but I hadn't heard of this one before. Looking forward to your thoughts. Have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, I'm not familiar with the D D book either. Hope it's a good one. enjoyReplyDelete
Oh my...I never knew Daphne DuMaurier wrote another book. I love her.ReplyDelete
I am going to have to check out this book.

I love Daphne de Maurier but don't know this book. I hope you'll enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Good luck with finding the remaining Christmas presents. Oh yes, a doctor set! I had one too. It's nice when you can make them happy with a toy like that.
I am not familiar with that Daphne du Maurier book either but I hope you like it.ReplyDelete
I hope you are successful in your Christmas shopping too.
I haven't read this one, but if it's Daphne Du Maurier it's bound to be enjoyable! Happy reading.ReplyDelete
I think I heard something about this Daphne Du Maurier treasure...enjoy!ReplyDelete
Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST
Enjoy your book. I love slow mail weeks, it allows me to play catch up.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of this Daphne Du Maurier book either. I've only read one Elizabeth George book but I found it to be hard to follow, lots of characters and a very long book. Hope you get your shopping done soon.ReplyDelete
Have not heard of this one. Let us know how you like it!ReplyDelete
New book to me too!! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a good read, enjoy!ReplyDelete
Good luck Christmas shopping - its always a last minute thing with me!ReplyDelete
Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian :)
How lovely to have a friend who sends you a book. :-) Enjoy it!ReplyDelete
I need to get started on my Christmas shopping. Yikes. Good luck with the rest of your shopping and your reading this week!ReplyDelete
I am envious that you got all that shopping done! Have a great week of reading.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the shopping - finding dressy clothes for 12-14 year old girls is not easy- they are too often 'club wear type stuff.ReplyDelete
I hope you finish up both your reads this week
