Monday Combo

Since they are short posts today, I’ll be combining Musing Mondays, Mailbox Monday and my Library Finds all in one post!

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about publishing houses …

Do you have a favourite publishing house — one that puts out books that you constantly find yourself wanting to read? If so, who? And, what books have they published that you’ve loved? (question courtesy of MizB)

– It’s a tie between Random House Canada and Simon and Schuster. I noticed Random House are responsible for having my wishlist exploding numerous times. Simon and Schuster has great books and is also responsible for me screaming in glee about Philippa Gregory’s new book (The White Queen). Just wait until I get my ARC on that one. You’ll probably hear me screaming all the way from the Gobi Desert.


For Mailbox Monday, I received the following:

Aging With Grace – Greg Lieberman (Thanks Bostick)
Mr Darcy, Vampyre – Amanda Grange (Thank you Sourcebooks! I screamed in glee when I got this one!)

For Library Finds this week, it was a small one. The hombre was waiting in the car and was whining about me not taking too long. Bah. Stupid hombre. Anyway I got these:

Black Man – Richard Morgan
The Sweet Far Thing – Libba Bray (can’t wait to get into this one)
Dark Hours – Gudrun Pausewang (looked really interesting) (WWII stuff)

All are short and sweet. So what did you guys get and find at the library? 🙂
