Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page; this month it is hosted by I’m Booking It.
A Vocation and A Voice (Kate Chopin)
This is Chopin’s last short story collection, written during the 1890s. I really wanted to read more of her work.
Diary of a Provincial Lady (E.M. Delafield)
Everyone’s made this one sound so perfect, I couldn’t resist. I only hope it’s more funny than The Way Things Are, which is one of the saddest books I’ve ever read!
The Professor and the Madman (Simon Winchester)
Another mooch. I’m very interested in Victorian attitudes to insanity, and I thought it was time to read more about the male experience 🙂
