Welcome to Mailbox Monday for 2013! This is the place to share your hauls. This January, it is being hosted by Lori’s Reading Corner, so please do visit for lots of mailbox envy!
Last Monday was my birthday (and a very hot day – 42°C or 107.6°F) so I didn’t show you my wonderful presents. This is what I received from my family, a lot of wonderful Persephone books:
Little Boy Lost by Marghanita Laski and Good Evening, Mrs Craven by Mollie Panter-Downes
in the pretty Classics format.
In the grey covers format, Harriet by Elizabeth Jenkins, Miss Buncle’s Book by DE Stevenson, William – An Englishman by Cicely Hamilton, Still Missing by Beth Gutcheon, Consequences by E.M. Delafield and Saplings by Noel Streatfeild.
I also received after a long delay due to postal service holidays a book from The Reading Room and Harper Collins, Behind the Sun by Deborah Challinor. It’s the first in an Australian historical fiction series and sounds great.
What did you receive over the past week? Have you made any resolutions about buying books for 2013?
