Mailbox Monday 12/9/11 – the $5 edition

Another week, another mailbox. Will I ever learn? All my books this week were from one of those shopping centre stands that sell all books for $5. I can’t resist them! I bought:

My Story – Dannii Minogue
I grew up with her and Kylie (not literally, as in I loved Dannii’s music when I was about 8)

Handling Edna – Barry Humphries
If anyone knows the Dame well, it’s Barry.

Save Me the Waltz – Zelda Fitzgerald Her only published novel.

Anita Shreve – A Change in Altitude I didn’t really like Body Surfing, but many others love her, so I thought I should give her another go.

All for $20! Some are to read on the commute (Dannii and Edna), others are to snuggle up at home with.

Do you like autobiographies? Or do you prefer fiction?

  1. Good haul. I love those vintage covers. I can walk by any display without buying one. I have always meant to try Anita Shreve. Heard lots of good things about her. Enjoy.

  2. I love so many of Anita Shreve’s books but I haven’t read A Change in Altitude yet although I have it here somewhere and I’m seriously intrigued by Save Me the Waltz…looking forward to your thoughts on this one.

    Enjoy the Dame and Danni’s book…I’m not too familiar with either person but it sounds like you will enjoy these books. I hope so!
    Happy reading!

    1. I have read a couple of Anita Shreve’s books and enjoyed them. I will be interested to hear what you think of the two autobiographies.

  3. Lots of good books this week 🙂
    I didn’t know that Zelda had published a novel.

    As for your question, I read much more fiction than biography, but I do read bios on occasion, although very rarely autobigographies.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
