After a long drought I received a few books in my Mailbox. All gratefully received! The meme hosted by Loris Reading Corner.
A book from a friend of a friend who went on a visit to Egypt. The book came from Egypt to Australia and then back to Sri Lanka!! Looking forward to this memoir from the 1800s.
Two Agatha Christie's from a friend
Finished and reviewed one already!
Win from Darlene at Peeking between the Pages and arrived this morning!

Still in a slump though I did get one book read. I have two DNF which is sad for me as I seldom if never do not finish. I took the advice of so many bloggers who said time is limited, the range of books out there is enormous and to get on to what interests me more.
Hopefully this week will be better.
Sorry to see you in a reading slump. Hope this week is better. Take care.ReplyDelete
I hope you find something exciting to read this week!ReplyDelete

Nice to have books in the mailbox. Hope a great book holds your interest this week :)ReplyDelete
THE RAVEN'S HEART looks good to read. Great cover too. I look forward to your review. Hope things are looking up.ReplyDelete
Good idea to DNF if your books aren't grabbing you. Hope your next book is wonderful. Enjoy your new arrivals!ReplyDelete
I do hope your next books are better, Mystica. But good for you to give up on books that aren't very interesting. Time IS limited and there really are so many good books out there.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
I've heard good things about The Raven's Heart so I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
It looks like you've picked some exciting ones...hope you enjoy them!ReplyDelete

I've read great reviews on The Raven's Heart. I want to read this one too. Hope all your books are wonderful.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry you are still in a reading slump. I know how painful those can be. It sounds like you received some good books though. Maybe that will help. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
A Thousand Miles Up the Nile is on my wishlist.ReplyDelete
I plan to make 2013 my year of reading from my own bookshelves. Please come see what I'm currently reading.
Sorry about the slump, hope it goes away quickly. That is a well traveled book! Have a great week.ReplyDelete
I'm proud of your for putting down the books that aren't working for you! You can always go back to them later if you feel like it. I hope your slump ends soon. Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
I hate abandoning a book. But I think finishing a book and realizing that it was really terrible is worse.ReplyDelete
I hope this week is better for you!
I loved Agatha Christie when I was in high school and really should revisit her books some day. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Sometimes life does get in the way of reading! But your new books should give you an extra incentive to read, Mystica!!ReplyDelete
