Mailbox Monday August 4

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.  Another week (and month!) has flown by.  It wasn’t a particularly busy one so you’d think I’d have gotten a lot accomplished, but that’s not the case.  Here are the books that showed up in my mailbox:




What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    I’m just going by the titles. I like each one. I enjoy the way you’ve put the books under the days of the week too. Enjoy your week.I have a mailbox in my sidebar.

    The Invention of Exile looks good. For once, I managed to read more books than I received last week!

    Alas, another week of empty mailboxes for me. Hardly even any bills! (I guess that’s a good thing….)

    ALl new to me. Look forward to your thoughts on them specially the Murder at the Bridewell

    It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything by Jan Karon. Might be time to dust off those early titles for a trip down memory lane before reading this new one.

    Murder at Brightwell looks like a fun book. The memoir on teaching in North Korea looks vry interesting too. Enjoy your wonderful mailbox this week!

    Some interesting books here. Again,all new to me… The Invention of Exile sounds interesting, as does Factory Man. Wonder if an entire book on Bassett furniture company could hold my attention though.

    Somewhere along the way I stopped reading the Jan Karon series. Not sure why. I’ll be interested in your thoughts the newest!

  10. August 4, 2014 9:10 am

    How fun! I have none of the books you received! The Jan Karon one looks good!

    Having spent much of my adult life as an interior designer, I was aware of John Basset’s struggles, but I’d love to learn more about it. I can’t WAIT to read this book! Happy Monday, Kathy!

    Surprisingly, your “mailbox” is all new to me! Enjoy your new goodies, Kathy!

    Hi Kathy,

    Another bumper week for some excellent mixed titles …something for almost everyone!

    I already have the Michael Connelly on my shelves with a foregone conclusion that it is going to be yet another fantastic read from the great man!

    ‘Murder At The Brightwell’ also caught my eye and not only for its amazing cover. I couldn’t read this kind of light hearted almost frivolous murder / mystery on a regular basis, but when a good one comes along … well who can resist!

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week,

  25. August 4, 2014 9:25 pm

    Hi Kathy, happy reading for yet another awesome week of books! I think I have the Michael Connelly book but I need to check… I’ll be busy with the Italian edition of Paulo Coelho’s ALEPH.

    Another Mitford book to add to my collection. Murder at Brightwell sounds good too. Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom’s Daily.

    The Hundred Foot Journey looks good. I’m supposed to read that later in the fall with my book group. The movie looks good that’s coming out too.

  29. August 5, 2014 6:20 pm

    Nice mailbox. Without You, There Is No Us looks good. Enjoy!

    Reading the Michael Connelly book in your new reads reminds me I keep meaning to start the Harry Bosch series!

  31. August 5, 2014 10:03 pm

    I love the Murder at Brightwell cover!

  32. August 7, 2014 3:03 pm
