Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. Mailbox Monday is currently on tour and this month it is making its home at Metroreader.
This week I got a few goodies:
- The Anatomist's Apprentice by Tessa Harris
- Jarrettsville by Cornelia Nixon
- Madame Bovary's Daughter by Linda Urbach
- Three Maids for a Crown by Ella March Chase
Next week is my b-day and hubby just said to go ahead and order some books I wanted. So, he's taking the easy route this year but at least I'm getting books!
Ordered from Book Depository in celebration of the upcoming big 3-0:
- Holy Warrior by Angus Donald
- Killer of Men by Christian Cameron
- King's Man by Angus Donald
- Marathon by Christian Cameron
- Warlord by Angus Donald
Three of those are pre-orders so I will be waiting a bit before they actually get here but I already paid for them so I'm counting them :)
From my Local UBS which was having a buy 3 get 1 free sale this weekend:
- The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff
- Middlemarch by George Eliot
- The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger
I ended up getting Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for my son as the freebie :)
I actually got offered a job at this bookstore while I was there. Another customer came in and said "I have a couple books I want but only know the title not the author."
Owner: "Well if you have the titles I'll be able to look up the author and see if we have it."
Other Customer: "The first one is called The Kitchen House."
Me: "Kathleen Grissom"
Owner: "Thanks! That would have taken me a minute."
Other Customer: The other one is One Thousand White Women."
Me: "Jim Fergus"
Owner: "Wow! You're good! Do you want a job here?"
If only my answer could have been a resounding YES but I doubt they would pay me as much as my current job.....
Finally, from NetGalley for review:
- Glow by Jessica Tuccelli
That's it for me this week. Hopefully everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!
