'I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.' L.M. Montgomery

In My Mailbox

This is a fun weekly meme initiated by The Story Siren. You simply post about what books you have received during the week no matter the source--library, purchased, borrowed, etc.  That way you could mention titles that might not otherwise get some face-time on your blog.

This week I got 4 used books from the laundry room table at my mom's apartment complex. People set books they've read there and exchange that way. My mom is always on the lookout for something she thinks I will read. Sometimes she is right on and sometimes I just pass them on. This week they look pretty interesting...

And 2 new ebooks from Project Gutunberg

These two are vintage mysteries that I am looking forward to reading for my Vintage Mystery Challenge!


  1. I have read one of Martini's books years ago and remember liking it.
    I have yet to read Michael Connelly. He is very popular with our customers in our used bookshop.

  2. Nice set of books this week. These are all new to me. I will have to look them up on goodreads.
    Happy reading,

  3. Hi there! Thanks for linking up on my "Sharing Our Bookshelves" post. It's nice to see new blogs out there! I see you mentioned about a Vintage Mystery Challenge... sounds like something I would enjoy being a part of! I'll have to find out more about that.
