Mailbox Monday/It's Monday What are you Reading?

I could not do my post last week because for some reason my Ipad would copy and paste the photos and in publication it would disappear!

I thought the post without the photos looked very dull so just deleted the whole post.   Back in Colombo to very sultry weather - though rain is imminent its not happening much to our frustration.

Netgalley publishers have been very kind to me! Despite several publishers not wanting to send books either due to geographical restrictions or the fact that my followers are a small number, some publishers are very encouraging for which I am appreciative.

The following are the books received from them.

A Cottage by the Sea         An Academic Question      

Free downloads from Amazon

A Very Good Life (Dana McGarry, #1)         The Bone Church: A Novel        InYourEyes


Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Reading the second in the trilogy of Noel Streatfeild's Vicarage series.

Interesting reading.
