Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists! This month MM is hosted by Library of Clean Books.
Yay, I got some books I don’t have to lug back to the library! 🙂
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Agatha Christie)
I’m writing a paper on this one, but since I only have a very used German copy I’ve been sharing with my mum for years, I thought it was a great excuse to get this nice paperback.
The Manual of Detection (Jedediah Berry)
Needed a book to read for my 5 hour trip home yesterday and treated myself to this book (which I’ve been wanting to read for ages and it was pretty great).
A Red Herring Without Mustard (Alan Bradley)
I adore the Flavia series and had to get book 3. It’s supposed to be my reward for finishing my papers so I’ll try to resist till April (haha, I know!).
Some Tame Gazelle (Barbara Pym)
This one is a mooch. Excellent Women was amazing so I can’t wait to try another Pym.
What arrived in your house last week?
Note: Thanks everyone for voting. Most of you wanted to read my thoughts on Ex Libris next, so I’ll post the review this week!
