Monday, Monday! What Are You Reading?


(Updated with beautiful new image).  Thanks to all of our Mailbox Monday hosts!  Created by Marcia at The Printed Page and on tour this month with Rose City Reader.  A thank you as well to host Sheila at Book Journey!

It's been a while since I took part in this meme, and I will blame it all on work!  What a crazy start to 2011 already.


From top to bottom in the picture:
  • The Oracle of Stamboul, by Michael David Lukas (Publication Date February 2011 - HarperCollins Publishers) - it arrives in a wonderful self-contained dark purple covering.  So creative in how you have to open it and pull the book out!
  • Exit the Actress, by Priya Parmar (Publication Date February 2011 - Simon & Schuster) - soooo excited to read this one!
  • Devotion: A Memoir, by Dani Shapiro (Publication Date January 2010 - HarperCollins Publishers)
  • State of Mind, by Sven Michael Davison (Publication Date March 2011 - Bedouin Press)
  • One Day, by David Nicholls (Publication Date June 2010 - Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group) - Received by Paperbackswap
  • After Isaactown, by Ward Jones (Publication Date January 2011 - CreateSpace, publisher)
  • Habit of a Foreign Sky, by Xu Xi (Publication Date October 2010 - Haven Books)
  • The Fifth Servant, by Kenneth Wishnia (Publication Date February 2011 - HarperCollins Publishers)
  • Pearl: A Life Too Short, A Death Too Long, by Darlene Cox (Publication Date November 2010 - Outskirts Press)
  • The Other Life, by Ellen Meister (Publication Date February 2011 - Penguin Group)


What about you?  What wonderful selections came for you?  I'd love to hear about it - feel free to post the link to your blog post, and if you don't have a blog, drop me a comment below and tell me what books you picked up, or are dying to get your hands on!



    Happy Reading,

    4. What a lovely pile of shiny books! I'm sure you'll enjoy reading those.

      If your shelves are getting too full, you might want to join in a giveaway blog hop (don't want to spam, but did think you might like to know about it). http://leeswammes.wordpress.com

    21. Great finds!

      As for me, I finally got from the snowed in PSU Libraries: Rebecca (a week late).

      And I borrowed from the Leisure Reading Collection: Christopher Buckley's Supreme Courtship -- and embarrassed myself tearing up with laughter reading the first chapter!

    33. Yay, you did get Exit the Actress!!!
      Can't wait to see if you would like One Day. My daughter and I bonded over that one. I think she must have called me 5x while she was reading it.
