Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading/Musings

Mailbox Monday has moved over to Rose City Reader for the month of January 2011, and In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted at The Story Siren.


I received one book after two weeks of Lull. Well, it is a start!
1) The Noah's Ark Quest by Boyd Morrison:


Do the remains of Noah's Ark really exist? Before he dies, the father of ambitious young architect Dilara Kenner leaves her tantalising clues about the location of the legendary historical artefact - Noah's Ark. The most fabled relic of all time, the search for Noah's Ark has obsessed many over the years. And when Dilara starts her quest - aided by former army engineer Tyler Locke - she rapidly becomes transfixed by the thought of discovering it. But there are sinister forces gathering who have deadly reasons for wanting to be the first ones to get to the relic.

Where is your favorite place to find new books to read? Blogs? The library? Newspapers? Magazines? In the backs of other books? Suggestions from friends/family? Online bookstores? On the shelves of the local bookstores?


I find new books on other book blogs. A few in the newspaper and also some in The Guardian

I think it is hard not to get ideas from our book friends since promoting our favorite read is what we do!

Sounds intriguing. My reading has gone into a slump. Back to work with a vengeance.

I enjoyed the Ark book, hope you do as well.

I find my books in a variety of places. Blogs helped me read genres I would have never picked up in the past.
