Monday Mailbox #33: Christmas Part 3

Monday Mailbox is hosted this month by At Home with Books.

Still more books coming in from Christmas - huzzah!

Jerry Orbach: Prince of the City, by John Anthony Gilvey
self-explanatory

Mine is actually the first edition, with a blue background. Not this second edition pukey color thing. I think (and I hope I don't have this wrong and get hit by an offended party, but I think) that my sister gave me this for Christmas from her pile of books that she wanted to get rid of - stuff she'd had in college, etc. Anyway, I'm pretty sure...mostly because there's an imprint on the cover, as if someone wrote on a post it stuck to the book...I can see my sister's handwriting and I can read "Running Errands" with a heart... also, I remember her telling me that's where this book came from. Anyway, it'll either be a helpful tool, or it'll offend me. Like one of those paper bag...grab bags! at parties? Yeah....anyway. YAY Christmas! Everyone should be able to celebrate the holidays long into January. We shouldn't just leave the gift-giving to December 25th! I say this out of pure selfish reasoning: I want more presents. :D

The Club Dumas, by Arturo Pérez-Reverto
Picked up this one at work. I love Dumas...I figure I'm probably the target audience.
