More Madness..

 Ah..well.. so… I have no excuse. 

These are the latest books to come into my apartment, though I have to say I forgot to post it when I got them so they have been here for a while now.  I can’t even guess when I might get to them…although House of Silence looks good enough to be one I might pick up soon! 


When will I ever learn? 

Some Kind of Fairy Tale is about the disappearance of a young girl from a small town in the heart of England. Her sudden return twenty years later, and the mind-bending tale of where she's been, will challenge our very perception of truth.  Sounds like a good mystery to me!

House of Silence is about A country house mystery... A family drama... A Gothic romantic comedy...REBECCA meets COLD COMFORT FARM in Linda Gillard's complex new novel, HOUSE OF SILENCE.  and… that works for me too!

A Journey: My Political Life by Tony Blair is about… ummm, Tony Blair’s political life..heh.

Not a bad group of books and of course not all of them are “new” :o)

So… what’s come into your house that’s “new”?

Some Kind of Fairy Tale sounds good! Will look that up. For a person who doesn't read political books you're certainly doing well with them. LOL!

These all sound very interesting,Pat....
The last book I bought was "GRACE", a memoir by Grace Coddington, the #2 person at Vogue Magazine, who turned out to be the most interesting person in the Documentary film about Vogue, "The September Issue"...A fascinating and extremely creative woman....! A very interesting life and a very interesting book!

chris: oh yeah I saw your latest "deliveries" have to remember my apartment is only 600 sq ft! there is no more room for me to put books! I recently had to donate some because i had no space !!! I hate giving away my books! (well the ones I really really liked ) if I know i won't reread a book I don't mind ...I even donate them to friends of the library.

No sense in even trying to "learn"...where would be the fun in that?

I love that house on the cover of House of Silence, as well as the one on the Joyce book. I'll be interested in your thoughts on each of them as they both look and sound very challenge-worthy.
