Monday Mailbox

I'm not putting my Christmas haul in this list. Although it was wonderful, it was embarrassingly extensive. ;-) So these are just the books that came in the mail.  This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Eye of Love by Margery Sharp came from me to me because I was ordering everyone else books and I needed some too.

I'm not sure how exactly I heard about Sharp and the fact that she's not really known anymore but when I read the synopsis of this and saw how much like a soap opera, but a very highbrow and literary soap opera, this sounded, I couldn't resist.

Today Will be Different by Maria Semple came from my wonderful friend Carin after she went to a signing at her local indie bookstore (it's signed to me!).

I enjoyed Semple's last book and I've been waiting for this one. I'm pretty sure that someone's been spying on my life--you know, the resolutions to do better daily that may or may not actually get accomplished.

The Original Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig came from Park Row Books.

About an autistic girl who, after years in foster care is finally adopted but struggles to feel at home with her new family so she decides to arrange for her biological mother to kidnap her, this sounds like it will be amazing and touching.

If you want to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
