Mailbox Monday 21/3/11

Afternoon all! Hope you’re having a lovely week. Me, I just got back from holidays:

Can you guess where I went? (Hint: it’s a humid island and these buildings house one of its first casinos…which I didn’t go into!)

While I was away, my Amazon UK order arrived (who could resist free international shipping to Down Under?):

I’ve heard so much about The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks but I couldn’t find it at home. Room appeared in small paperback literally the day after I ordered this (but still cheaper to get from the UK). Ellis Island has been compared to Brooklyn by Colm Toibin, which I really enjoyed. Finally, Sister was on my Christmas wishlist but I didn’t receive it.

I already have another Amazon wishlist going!

What did you receive in your letterbox over the last week? Do visit Laura at I’m Booking It, who is hosting this week.

  1. I haven’t read any of those but I’m planning on listening to the audio of Henrietta Lacks. It’s always checked out at the library so I’ll have to request it.

  2. Hope you guys enjoy Ellis Island – let me know through the website/blog – and I’ll be checking back in. Just finished the sequel – so have time to Google readers!
    Great to have brilliant bloggers out there encouraing people to read!
    Best – Kate. K.
