This month's Monday Mailbox is hosted by Let Them Read Books.
This week I received two books from Nicole over at Confessions of a Book Lush. She was getting rid of a bunch of things, giving away a pile of books she no longer required. So I ended up with:
The Water's Lovely, by Ruth Rendell
The Life Before Her Eyes, by Laura Kasischke
This one has a movie adaptation, so I guess I'll have to see it if I end up liking the book.
And I know that a lot of Monday Mailboxers insist that library books don't count, but I say they do. This week I borrowed an e-book (because getting to the library to pick up a book was proving to be too much, and take too much time - on their part...like actually confirming the hold).
The Cookbook Collector, by Allegra Goodman
This one is for the Sense & Sensibility Bicentennial Challenge.
Finally, I received my new paperback copy of A Discovery of Witches this week! And there was the giveaway of course...so someone else will be getting one as well! I'm happy to announce that the winner of a newly published paperback copy of Deborah Harkness' A Discovery of Witches is:
Please check your e-mail for the winning confirmation, and respond with your shipping info so that Penguin Books can get that out to you.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated. If you still want a copy of A Discovery of Witches in paperback, it goes on Sale next Tuesday, December 27th. Pre-order yours now!
