Mailbox Monday 28/1/13

If you’re reading this shortly after it was posted, I’m still asleep. That’s because this Monday is a holiday celebrating Australia Day (which was actually on Saturday 26th). It’s lovely to have a Monday holiday and be free to do all the great things that are linked with being Australian, like having a barbeque, swimming, watching/playing cricket and…reading.

I didn’t get much opportunity to shop over the last week due to extra work and study commitments, but thank goodness for the postie! I was really happy to receive a copy of Jodi Picoult’s latest book, The Storyteller. Her books usually have a controversial/topic twist to them that creates a lot of conversation around here. Thanks to both The Reading Room and Allen and Unwin. This book will be released in Australia in March.

The second book I received is the latest book from Ciara Geraghty, Lifesaving for Beginners (out in February in Australia). I really like her books (especially Becoming Scarlett) and I like how this cover is different to previous ones, no so chick-lit like (you know, woman gazing into distance smiling type). This is for a readalong with All the Books I Can Read. Thanks to Hachette for the copy.

Finally, I spent some of my book vouchers and came out with Peter Ackroyd’s London, strangely about the history of London. This is the abridged version – I wish it had been written on the front rather than the back. It’s still 662 pages though!

Did you get much reading done this week?

  1. I still haven’t read a Jodi Picoult book, although I have a few of them on my shelf. The history of London sounds intriguing … and long… but I’m sure it will be interesting.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
