In my mailbox

“In my mailbox” is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren in which people share the books that they have acquired that week.

Once again, this is a fortnightly edition for me, thanks to a very busy weekend last week.  I have a feeling this is not going to be good news for the TBR pile, particularly as the cold weather has evidently triggered my winter hibernation mode, making me keep falling asleep on the train to and from work and hence nearly eliminating my reading time.  To add to that, my two current reads are both quite chunky and so my paltry reading efforts aren’t translating into removing books from the pile at the moment.

Hopefully in the coming week I’ll be able to make better progress.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

From BookMooch:


Books for review:

Books bought brand new (yes, I actually purchased a new book from a real shop):

So, in summary:

Books off the TBR pile this fortnight – 2 (oh, the shame)

Books on the TBR pile this fortnight – 11

Change – +9

TBR pile stands at – 523 books

What interesting books you have to read! I’m still working on my post, but should have it up later if you care to stop by!

Thank you! I look forward to getting around to reading these, although that may not be for some time given the size of my pile already!

Jitterbug Perfume is one of my favorite books of all-time. It was my first Tom Robbins book and his other books that I have read just pale in comparison to this one, in my own opinion. It truly is unique.

I’m glad to hear that it’s a good read. It sounded so odd I knew I wanted to read it, so I’ll look forward to it all the more now.
