Mailbox Monday

Three books this week, one that I won in a giveaway and the other two the result of stopping by my favourite bookstore in Tokyo on the weekend. It seems that the recent strong yen has finally kicked in because many new paperback books were a little cheaper than I've seen them in quite some time. Of course I couldn't come away empty-handed! So here's what I got:
No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Runemarks by Joanne Harris (Thanks Heather!)

What books have you got recently?

  1. I got “My Stroke of Insight” by Jill Taylor and finished it this morning...amazing book!

  2. Yea! It finally arrived! Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Oh yay, new books. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is on my wish list - I keep hearing such good things about that one. Enjoy!

  4. I like Joanne Harris,I am curious about ths new book. Also I wonder how NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN reads, considering how good the movie is.

    Hope as always your week started out nicely.

  5. Janet - I haven't even heard of it or the author, I'll have to go look it up.

    Heather - Thanks again! :)

    Iliana - I've been in book-buying mood lately, or at least giving in to the temptation more easily lately! I'm looking forward to reading it, along with all the rest! :P

    Sylvie - I read 3 or 4 of her earlier books but haven't read anything for a few years now. So it'll be good to do so again.
    I haven't seen the movie of No Country for Old Men yet so will probably try to read the book first.
    And thanks. I hope you're doing as well as can be expected. :)
