It seemed like not so long ago that I was complaining of the heat as I wrote. Now I’m in layers, the noise of the keyboard muffled by my beanie and sleeves pulled down to my fingers. Winter is finally here!
Dolce Bellezza is our Mailbox Monday host for June. Mailbox Monday, started by Marcia, is the place to come and share your recent book acquisitions and walk away with a huge wish list!
I didn’t receive any books in the mail last week. I didn’t buy any and haven’t requested many of late (plus, more publishers are moving to ebooks). I did get to the shops though! The local shopping centre (mall) was having a four day promotion, with 40% off a full priced book at Dymocks. I chose Under the Jewelled Sky by Alison McQueen, about a woman returning to India in the 1950s. The book also came with a free copy of her first book, The Secret Children (about two young girls during Indian independence).
I also bought a couple more ebooks as I had some Kobo coupons. They were The Unpierced Heart (also known as The Whores’ Asylum) by Katy Darby, set in the Victorian era as two men offer sanctuary to London’s prostitutes with devastating events unfolding. I also bought All the Beggars Riding by Lucy Caldwell
after reading a blogger’s review (I’m sorry but I can’t remember who!). This is about confronting the past as time is running out.
What did you receive this week?
