Received

After a couple of months of not buying or mooching very many books I suddenly have books in the mail. I think one of the small pleasures of life is to come home from work and find packages waiting in my mailbox. Divine! So here is what I’ve recently received:

The Dark Tide by Vera Brittain ~ I’ve never read anything by Brittain or know very much about her, but I found this Virago for a good price on Amazon and snatched it up. The plot appeals to me.

Gigi by Colette ~ This was on my Bookmooch wish list and I thought it might be a possibility for Paris in July so I hurriedly requested it.

The Professor’s House by Willa Cather ~ I am an ardent admirer of My Antonia and have always meant to read more Cather.  I’ll add this to my collection of her books to read “someday”.

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys ~ Earlier this year I read two of Rhys’ novels and a biography of her and am really intrigued by her as a woman and as a writer. I want to read her masterpiece sometime later this year.

I’ve got a couple more books on their way and then I need to stop. I already cringe at the thought of packing up my library for my move later on this summer and shouldn’t keep adding to the stacks when I really should be purging!

Have you received anything in the mail lately? Have you read any of these titles?
