Mailbox Monday

CardinalMailboxMailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The February host is Audra @ Unabridged Chick.
Although it’s still winter and there is snow on the ground, I’m already thinking Spring and landscaping. So I’m excited to be able to preview a copy of Gardening for the Birds.
For review from Timber Press (eGalley):

Backyard Bird SanctuaryThe Backyard Bird Sanctuary:
How to Create a Bird-Friendly Garden

by George Adams

With hundreds of native plants, extensive seasonal bloom and fruiting charts, and the techniques for creating a balanced ecosystem, this book helps you turn any space—from a small, urban terrace to a large suburban yard—into a home for a fascinating variety of birds. Close-up profiles of birds from across all regions of North America teach you their nesting, breeding, and feeding habits.

A win from Criminal Element:

Stalked by Allison BrennanStalked (Lucy Kincaid #5)
by Allison Brennan

A new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Lucy Kincaid has already seen more than her share of murder and mayhem. Still reeling from the sex-crime case that sealed her reputation, she’s found a true friend and mentor in Agent Tony Presidio. No matter what goes down at the Bureau, Tony’s got her back—until he’s called to New York to help investigate the murder of a reporter with ties to Lucy. But the reporter may not be the first victim of a patient killer with a penchant for revenge, and she’s definitely not the last. Connections between closed cases, a missing person, and Tony himself lead Lucy to fear for those she cares for most.
Purchased the e-book for a Book Circle discussion:

    Enjoy your new books. I may have to check out the Backyard Bird Sanctuary for my daughter. It might be a fun way to get her into helping outside this summer.

    Those all look like great ones. That Backyard one maybe one I will steal as my yard needs some TLC this Spring! What I am reading right now is Women I Want to Grow Old With. Along the lines of Shasta’s book. Shasta’s book is on my tbr list, is where you can find that one. It’s been a real help in some of my friendships!
