Mailbox Monday: What's Inside?




















To many book bloggers, this is a familiar sight--the white padded envelope, which holds a book. When you're expecting books in the mail, it's fun to try to guess which book is inside the envelope.

To be honest, I wasn't sure what the contents would be this time, because I'm expecting several books in the mail (so much for the moratorium). But I was pleased to find Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy: The Last Man in the World by Abigail Reynolds in the mailer. I won this book on Anna's engaging book blog, Diary of an Eccentric. Anna's review has made me eager to read it.

This is the only new book I have to report for Mailbox Monday, a terrific meme where readers share the books they've recently acquired, hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. That's a good thing, though, as I already have plenty of books waiting to be read (and more headed my way).

What books arrived in your home recently, by mail or from elsewhere?

  4. I agree it's fun to try to guess which books came in. I also have many books due to come in. Three of my books came the same day, so that was fun to unwrap them. Almost like Christmas!

  9. I like the cover of the book. A little out of my normal reading range but the cover would grab my attention enough to pick it up and check it out.

  10. I also received a new book today and it's something I've been dying to find in the mailbox... Shanghai Girls :)

    I'm also reading Pride and Prejudice, together with Mee, so I'm finding your new book interesting. Have fun reading it!

  12. Half of the excitement is not knowing what book could be in there!!
