Mailbox Monday (April 20)
I haven’t been getting much in the mail these days, although this past week brought two books: The Crimes of Paris: A True Story of Murder, Theft, and Detection by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler, which I won from Valorie at Morbid Romantic (courtesy of Hachette) and Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe by Jennie Shortridge, which came directly from the author, thanks to Dawn at She Is Too Fond of Books.
This past Sunday was also my monthly blogger meet-up with Cindy, Donna and Tina; although I had to leave early because a friend was visiting from out of town, I scored several books from Donna:
The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber
Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
Thanks to Donna, I now own the third and fourth Maisie Dobbs books; I must get my hands on the first two!
