Mailbox Monday ~ August 19th

Lg-Gerbera_MailboxMailbox 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 scheduled host for this month appears to MIA so today’s Linky will be hosted by Kathy @ Bermudaonion’s Weblog.

Another busy week for me. When the weather is nice the time just flies by and it’s Monday already.

Here’s what arrived last week, a mix of print and audio:

Print Books


Accused (Rosato & Associates #14) by Lisa Scottoline from St. Martin’s Press.
Mary Dinuzio has just been promoted to partner and is about to take on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by a thirteen-year-old genius with a penchant for beekeeping.

Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield from Atria/Emily Bestler Books.
Desperate to save the one precious thing he has left, William enters into a rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner, to found a decidedly macabre business.


Nubs: A Little Bird with a Big Story by Kristin Ludwig. Purchased by me.
The true story of Nubs, the handicapped parakeet who was part of a massive rescue effort. Follow Nubs’ journey from his rescue to his fresh chance at life! 100% of the author’s excess revenue will support the ongoing care of Nubs’ flock, who now lives at the Washington Park Zoo in Michigan City, Indiana.



Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier from Simon and Schuster Audio.
Lanier asserts that the rise of digital networks led our economy into recession and decimated the middle class.

The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman, a download from Simon and Schuster Audio.
Sisters Natalie and Alice Kessler were close, until adolescence wrenched them apart.

What are you reading?

    Leslie, I just met Tracy Guzeman, The Gravity of Birds, yesterday. She participated in Litquake, in Palo Alto, CA. The event brought in 40 authors, with a wide variety of panel discussions. I attended 3, and one of them was for 3 emerging authors. Tracy was one of those. I had a chance, at the cocktail party at the end of the event, to talk to her at some length. She is delightful. I bought her book and had it signed and am looking forward to reading it. If she writes as well as she interacts with people, I feel like I’m in for a treat.

      Lucky you! I enjoy author events too. I’m looking forward to listening to Tracy’s book in the next few weeks.

    Birds is the theme? Love your choices, enjoy!

      Birds do seem to pop up often around here!

    I’m expecting Accused this week…can’t wait! Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.


    • Leslie / Aug 19 2013 3:25 pm

      Accused will be my first Lisa Scottoline book but I’m hoping I can jump into the series without too much trouble.

    Bellman and Black is getting great reviews. I hope you love it. Poor little Nubs story sounds interesting.


    • Leslie / Aug 19 2013 3:20 pm

      I adopted Charlie (my Lovebird) from the same shelter that Nubs was taken to after he was rescued from the bird hoarder. So I’ve decided to let Charlie write the review of the book!

    Bellman & Black sounds really interesting. Happy reading!

    They all look good, Leslie. Have a great week!


  12. Leeswammes / Aug 20 2013 4:21 pm

    They all look good! I used to have a parakeet just like that. Who Owns the Future sounds interesting. Enjoy the new books.
