Happy Monday!! Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week. Here’s what I received:
OK, I did not receive these in the mail, I bought them at Barnes & Noble, but since they are the only books that came in my house (except for from the library and those I can’t keep, they will send the old lady with the white hair and German accent after me I’m sure) I am listing them.
1. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
2. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez
3. The Wall by Jean-Paul Satre
The Reader is a recent addition to my TBR list, Love in the Time of Cholera has been on it a long time, and The Wall was on the shelf opposite The Reader.
I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with listing what you bought. I did that this week, too!
I’m dying to read The Reader. I hope you enjoy it!

I’ve heard that Love in the Time of Cholera is good – one of our book clubs is thinking of reading it.
Here’s my Mailbox!
I just ordered a copy of The Reader from Paperback Swap!
It’s nice when you are looking at one book and another one catches your eye. Mine’s here
I read Love in the Time of Cholera earlier this year…now I need to watch the movie! I will be curious to see what you think of that one.
