Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!
Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at The Printed Page, is on a blog tour! March 2011's host is I'm Booking It.
This past week's book arrivals were more than the usual one ARC or a trade from PaperBackSwap.com.
The ARCs were
The Girl Who Would Speak for the Dead by Paul Elwork
Wrecker by Summer Wood
A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Windspear
Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee
My lone receipt from swapping was
Garden of Eden by Ernest Hemingway
which I read many years ago when it was first published, but wanted to reread. Something recently reminded me of this book and I wondered if I would feel the same way about it now as when I first read it. I don't do this very often since I have so much that I still want to read for the first time but occasionally it does happen. I am always surprised what I get out of it the second time around.
Guess I better get cracking because I am getting farther and farther behind. Hope your mailbox is kind to you this week!
