In My Mailbox (13)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren, in which book bloggers post about the books they've bought, borrowed or received in the past week.

This week I bought the Kobo Touch and a pretty case! Probably should have waited until Christmas, but they were on sale at Toys R Us so I pulled out some babysitting money and jumped on it. It's much quicker than my old Kobo Wifi, so I'm very happy so far. 

This week in e-galleys I received Tell it to the Trees by Anita Rau Badami, Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand and Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman. 

I do volunteer shelf reading at the library and happened to be doing the non-fiction books about authors section. I found The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World by Margaret C. Sullivan and Sherlock Holmes was Wrong: Reopening the Case of the Hound of the Baskervilles by Pierre Bayard. 

Christmas books! Knit the Season is the sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club, which I liked enough to continue with the series. Home for the Holidays is part of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series, and the sequel to Pies and Prejudice. I wish that these books had been around when I was twelve or so. You can also see some of my wrapping paper.
