Mailbox Monday

Ok, so I'm not really sure which of these were in the last 7 days, but I've gotten a few books in lately.

  • The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs
  • Through the Narrow Gate: A Memoir of Spiritual Discovery By Karen Armstrong
  • The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
  • In the Woods by Tana French
  • Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
  • Let it Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson
There are a few more en route to me from Paperbackswap, so I better get to reading! This is why I don't take my account off vacation hold very often.


  1. I have both In the Woods and The reader in my TBR pile. I hope you enjoy them!

  2. I've enjoyed both of French's books, The Reader makes you think about morality, and Anne Morrow Lindbergh's prose is beautiful. The other two also sound interesting. Great haul!

  3. The Year of Living Biblically is a very funny book. I hope you like it!


  4. I really enjoyed In The Woods. It took me a little while to get into it but I really liked the characters and thought it was very well written.

  5. The reader and in the woods are supposed to be great books.

  6. I just picked up Year of Living Biblically and can't wait to dive in. Did you get that in prep for the non-fiction five?? :) OK, I'm going to stop hounding and pressuring you. read-a-thon?? :P

  7. I hope you enjoy The Reader! I really liked that book, but it has been a few since I read it...

  8. I've had my eye on The Reader for awhile. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think. Enjoy your new books!

  9. Looks like both The Reader and In the Woods have good followings. No idea when I'll get to any of these!

    Trish, hound away! It makes me remember these things are happening. I will come sign up for the challenge!

  10. I'm interested to see what you think of The Year of Living Biblically and In the Woods :)

  11. Oooh, you got some good stuff! I want to read The Year of Living Biblically. It's been eons, but I've read the Anne Morrow Lindbergh and loved it. Enjoy reading! I know what you mean about going on vacation hold. It's like they're on a conveyor belt and they just keep piling up behind the wall before you open the door, then you get a flood of books after vacation.

  12. bookfool, I just like to not have to worry about mailing books for long stretches of time. I'd rather have the backlog all at once and then be done for a while.
