Mailbox Monday for March 1


I'm joining Mailbox Monday for my first time, which is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. This is a pic of my street and mailbox where three book deliveries happened this past week. If the sun wasn't so bright, you'd see the blue ocean in the distance. I think I'll try another photo for next week's post.

 

Are any of you fans of M.C. Beaton? I love her Agatha Raisin books but never had the opportunity to read the Hamish Macbeth series. Thanks to my book win on Kaye's Pudgy Penguin Perusals, I received a free copy of Beaton's latest book from Hachette. Look for my review in March of Death of A Valentine.

Next up is The Poacher's Son by Paul Doiron. It's a new mystery scheduled for release in April. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from Barnes and Noble's First Look Program. Today we begin our on-line discussion of the book.

Finally, a personal favorite arrived from Paperback Swap. This out-of-print book from 1978 has been on my wish list for years. It's What's My Line? by Gil Fates. This is a behind the scenes look at the popular games show that ran on television from 1950-1967. It had style, class and truly reflected the time period in America. Up until last year, the Game Show Network used to air What's My Line every night. You can also find clips of the show on YouTube.

Are any of you M.C. Beaton fans, Barnes and Noble First Look participants, or What's My Line buffs?

  3. MC Beaton? I hear great things about her, but have yet to read any. I'm thinking I'll need to fix that. Soon.

  4. I discovered M.C. Beaton and Agatha Raisin last year, but haven't read Hamish Macbeth. Can't wait to see what you think!
