In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.
Let's take a peek inside my shopping bag this week....
I Used to Know That: Shakespeare by Liz Evans

Ah yes...it's the Bard and what better way to get reacquainted than through this charming book series. This should be interesting....
The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris by John Baxter
(courtesy of Harper Perennial)
This one sounded enchanting. Almost combines a travel guide to the city of lights with a literary back story as the author is said to have given walking tours of the city's literary history...aka author's favorite haunts. Curious....
Read My Hips by Kim Brittingham

What can I say? I don't usually do selp-help or self-esteem books, but the quirky title on this one combined with the ironically timed arrival of the pitch worked together to gather my interest. We shall see if it keeps it....
Shoot for the Moon by Corinne Humphrey
(courtesy of Chronicle Books)
Again with the ironically timed arrival of this book....I admit it, I read it upon arrival. It's really quite wonderful in it's simple way and great for so many reasons. Review to come soon....
Viola in the Spotlight By Adriana Trigiani

First, how adorable is that cover! Nice colors and look at the cutie puppy! *ahem* Having not read the first book in the series, I'll be correcting that problem post haste (a copy is winging its way to me now) and then, then we shall tackle this interesting book.
The Box by Richard Matheson
I did not see the movie however the book....it DOES look intriguing. We shall see.
That's it for this week.
What did you get?
Until next time...happy reading!
