Mailbox Monday

November's host for Mailbox Monday is Marcia.
Join in and share the new books which arrived for you last week.

Last week I treated myself to (3) new Europa Editions, since I have enjoyed every book by this publisher that I have read so far. I was so excited about my purchases, and then I discovered that I already have (1) of the titles I ordered :(  Lions at Lamb House - so watch for a future giveaway!

The other (2) Europas are: French Leave; Anna Gavalda and In a Strange Room; Damon Galgut.

I also won Margaret Atwood's new book, In Other Worlds, from Meg@ A Bookish Affair (many thanks Meg).

A Sense of an Ending; Julian Barnes, came from a Paperback Swap member - sounds really good.

Chalk Girl; Carol O'Connell - (arrived from Putnam and Shelf Awareness) (sounds like a good thriller)

Out of Oz; Gregory Maguire (arrived from Harper Audio - thanks so much)

Hope you received some new books as well.

    The Sense of an Ending is a book I also want to read.

    Happy reading!

  9. I will be interested in hearing what you think of the Atwood and the Maguire. I have long been fans of both, but Maguire has disappointed me as of late. It will be interesting to see what you think!

  10. I've got a copy of In Other Worlds on its way... I'm anxious to read that one.

    I've bought the same book twice... several times. Must mean you really want to read the book!

  12. Good stack this week! I am going to give Atwood another try but it's a book from long ago and not sci-fi.

    Have a great week!

  16. Don't you hate when you buy a book you already own?! It happens to me more often than I would care to admit.

  25. I still haven't read anything by Margaret Atwood--you've reminded me that I need to start...soon.

    I've heard mostly negative stuff about Maguire's books--interesting to see you and others excited about this new one.

    Enjoy your books!
