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!
I had a flying visit to the UK this week for work (literally flying - I was there for a total of about 36 hours) and I fell victim to the bookstores in London Heathrow. Every time I travel through LHR, I come home with books no matter how much I insist that I will not purchase any more books! I hit WH Smith in Terminal 4 and picked up:
Men from the Boys by Tony Parsons - this is a sequel to Man and Boy: A Novel which I read a number of years ago and enjoyed
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Vintage) by Steig Larsson - I may be the last person alive not to have read this book. My book club is reading it next month so I needed it (that was the excuse that got me into the bookstore to begin with!)
The Making of Modern Britain by Andrew Marr - when in Rome . . . I mean London! I am an anglophile so this one appealed to me
Take a Chance on Me by Jill Mansell - I love Brit Chick Lit and I hear wonderful things about this author so I indulged and picked up one of her books
What came into your home this week?
