Monday Mailbox

Another delightful looking trio of books came into my house this week.  Well, plus the book I intend to give to my MIL for Christmas but have to pre-read on the sly before I wrap it.  ;-)  This past week's mailbox arrival:

Married Love by Tessa Hadley came from Harper Perennial and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Short stories about relationships and the truths within them, this could be very close to home.

On the Map by Simon Garfield came from Gotham.

Maps are cool. A book about maps and our relationship to them should be endlessly fascinating for someone like me who used to pore over atlases as if they contained the answer to every question in the world.

An Extraordinary Theory of Objects by Stephanie LaCava came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Illustrated essays written by an expat in Paris as a way to combat her anxiety and depression, this looks like a completely fascinating read..

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit BermudaOnion as Kathy is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. I hope you enjoy each book - I'll watch for your reviews!

  2. All of your books look good. I got On the Map too - it should be interesting. The way we use maps has certainly changed recently. Enjoy your new books!

  3. Looks like a nice diverse mailbox. Have a wonderful week and enjoy all your new books!

  4. Ohh, I was not aware that Tessa Hadley had a new book --enjoy

  5. ON THE MAP looks good...haven't heard of it.

    AN EXTRAORDINARY THEORY OF OBJECTS looks quite interesting.

    ENJOY them both.

  6. These look fabulous! I have been noticing On the Map around. Enjoy!


  7. Intrigued with On the Map, hope it's awesome. Enjoy all your new books!

  8. Married Love has caught my eye.

  9. I used to be fascinated by atlases as well. I'd love to find the one I had in high school. Too bad ON THE MAP is being released after Christmas, because it sounds like a great gift for my husband too!

  10. I have On The Map sitting on my TBR pile and I can't wait to get to it :)


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
