In My Mailbox (February 20th-26th 2011)

This week my mailbox wasn't exceptionally busy but it was kinda nice to read more books than I received- maybe I'll finally make a dent in my TBR pile.
{For Review}
The Divinity Gene by Matthew J. Trafford (D&M Publishers)
Tiger, Tiger: A Memoir by Margaux Fragoso (D&M Publishers)
The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa
Grimms' Fairy Tales by Brothers Grimm 
Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor

All three gift books came from my wonderful buddy Laala. The Pessoa is one of her most favourite books and she has been insisted I read it for awhile but the library doesn't have it- her solution was to order me a copy from the book depo! I'm not complaining though. The other two were ones she had doubles of that I was lusting over, especially Even The Dogs as I loved the first McGregor I read. The book itself has an interesting fabric type cover, I'm not sure I've ever seen on American books (this is the UK edition).

Both review books look wonderful and I love a good memoir, after all I was just lusting over Tiger, Tiger so my wish was fulfilled. The short story collection should also be really good.
