How do you like my new mailbox? Well, I wish it were my mailbox, but it is my photo; I captured it when we were down the Cape this summer. And, since I took the pic in the late afternoon, and got this ugly shadow, I think I’ll have to go back next summer to get a clearer picture! If this is the mailbox, I’d love to see what the inside of the house looks like … I imagine bookcases in every room!
Here’s what came in my (nondescript, standard issue) mailbox this week:
I won Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo from Ashley at Ashley’s Library (thank you!). I’ve read so many great reviews of this and the next book The Girl Who Played with Fire. It’s set to be a trilogy, but the author died before the third book was published (or even finished writing?). I’m not sure what the status is on completing the trilogy … anyone know? Oh, here’s a fun fact: I just read softdrink’s review, and learned that the Swedish title of the book is Men Who Hate Women … what do you think of that?!?
Coincidentally, I also won a The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo temporary tattoo from Carol at Carol’s Notebook. How perfect is that timing? Either I, or one of my kids, will wear the tattoo to display along with my review of the book.
You can read what came in other mailboxes over at Marcia’s The Printed Page.
What did you add to your bookshelves in the past week or so?
