Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at the Printed Page. It is currently on tour and this month it is being hosted by Rose City Reader

January has been good to me so far. I'm sure my postal carrier has been grumbling as he's had to endure freezing cold temps and huge snow drifts to deliver my precious books :)

So here's the loot:

From PBS:
  • The Virgin Queen's Daughter by Ella March Chase
  • Taking Liberties by Diana Norman
  • The Sparks Fly Upward by Diana Norman
  • The Memoirs of Mary Queen of Scots by Carolly Erickson
  • Kleopatra by Karen Essex
  • The Fourth Queen by Debbie Taylor
  • A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin

Won in the 2010 Jean Plaidy Challenge on Royal Intrigue:
  • The Queen's Favorites by Jean Plaidy
  • Louis the Well-Beloved by Jean Plaidy

Bought from Barnes & Noble:
  • The Children's Book by AS Byatt
