A shorter mailbox than usual as I’ve been down with a cold and ear infection over the last week. I’ve since learnt that one of the great things about ereaders is they’re not as heavy to hold up while you’re lying down!
Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia, and this month will be hosted by Gina at Book Dragon’s Lair. It’s the place to be for bookish finds!
There was just one book in my letterbox this week from The Reading Room and boy, it was a good one:
I’m not sure how popular Tim Winton is outside of Australia, but a new book by him is big news. Eyrie is set quite close to me in Fremantle, Western Australia is about a loner who lost his job due to corruption and then reconnects with a girl from his youth. It is a biting satire of Western Australia in the boom times so far and I’m loving it. Thanks Anna!
Another thing I like is how the dust jacket and hardcover underneath have such different pictures, like day and night.
What did you receive in your mailbox over the past week? Any big releases or books that are dear to you?
