In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren

I have an oddly eclectic bunch of books in my mailbox this week.

From the library

The first Aftrican American armoured unit to see combat in WW II

A WW I book written by our newest National Ambassador for Young People's Literature

A novel about a Jewish boy who learns to box in Nazi Germany under the tutlage of Max Schmeling

Books I bought
A new coming of age story, orginally the author's dissertation 

Something old: I haven't read Rosamunde Pilcher since The Shell Seekers hit the charts 

Something older: I have been hunting an affordable, complete copy of this for a long time and finally found one

A new WW II Kindertranspot story for YA readers 
Just for Fun
Not sure what I will do with this, but it should be fun

  12. The Miseducation of Cameron Post looks interesting. Enjoy reading!

    Here's my Mailbox.

  13. Nice selection! I will be interested to see what you make of the Biggles, I’ve not read anything by W. E. Johns, although I keep promising myself I will. Cameron Post and my family for the war look interesting.

  14. I really want Cameron Post, it looks fab! Coming Home is a strong contender for my favourite book ever - I read my copy so many times it fell apart and I had to buy a new one!
