“Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
Here’s what I got in my mailbox this week!
I’ve heard mixed things about this book but when I picked it up and started reading about the different kinds of roadkill you can find in a rural Wisconsin small town I knew I had to have it!
This book was pretty popular when it first came out. Again, I’ve heard mixed things about this one but lately I’ve been wanting to know more about ancient Egypt and, with it priced so cheap, I decided to give it a go.
Yes, I am too late for ‘Austen in August’ but so be it. I love this cover so I snatched this up. I. currently about a quarter of the way through with this; I read it once before in high school and loved it and am enjoying revisiting it. So far, however, I think I like Sense and Sensibility more, although this is very good.
I recently read The Joy Luck Club, my first book by Amy Tan and I absolutely loved it. So last week, when I saw this book by her on a shelf in Goodwill, I immediately snatched it up. Not sure when I will get around to it but I have high hopes for it!
This is an edited version of The Last of the Mohicans for children from the 70s with loads of bright, beautiful colorful illustrations. To be honest, I have yet to hear anything positive about The Last of the Mohicans from those who have read it so I thought starting with a children’s version of only 160 pages would be a nice place to start.
This is the second book in The Sparrow series. I have not read the first book, The Sparrow, yet but based on the premise- Jesuit priests in space contacting the first confirmed ‘aliens’- seems right up my ally. I got this one on the cheap- now I just need to get ahold of the first one!
28 Italian Songs and Arias of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries (with 2CDs) based on the Editions of Alessandro Parisotti
This isn’t a traditional book per say but it is a book, and I bought it this past week like the rest! I’ve started voice lessons and I purchased this book with my teachers advice. I don’t know any of the songs in it yet but I am excited to work through it!
Well, that’s it for me this week. What did you get in your mailbox?
