Story Siren hosts In My Mailbox where book bloggers offer a peek into the books that arrived in their homes over the past week. Mailbox Monday hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page has the same objective. These memes are great in that they offer us a chance to see what others are reading- it's like candy for book addicts!
Here is what arrived in the mail this week:
I'll Know It When I See It: A Daughter's Search for Home in Ireland by Alice Carey- this author returns to her mother's homeland, Ireland, to buy a home with her husband. The book recounts the hunt for the house and their life together in Ireland. (from Amazon)
An Irish Country Childhood: Memories of a Bygone Age by Marrie Walsh - this author is from the same part of Ireland as my Mom - it looks to be a charming memoir and I thought my Mom would love to read it when I was done. (from Amazon)
100 Shades of White by Preethi Nair - I read and reviewed the Colour of Love by this author earlier in the year and really enjoyed the writer's style so I decided to pick up another of her books (Bookmooch)
On the Brink: Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial Systemby Henry Paulson - I don't undertstand nearly enough about the economy but am fascinated to learn more especially about the events that took place late in 2009 (Hachette)
What came into your mailbox this week? Have you read any of the ones I received?
