Mailbox Monday ~ November 18th

CardinalMailboxAutumnMailbox 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. Currently on tour, it is hosted by a different blog each month.

The November host is Crystal @ I totally paused!.

I received some audio downloads and a print book from LibraryThing.


Quiet Dell by Jayne Anne PhillipsHatching Twitter by Nick Bilton

Quiet Dell by Jayne Ann Phillips from Simon & Schuster
In Chicago in 1931, Asta Eicher, mother of three, is lonely and despairing, pressed for money after the sudden death of her husband. She begins to receive seductive letters from a chivalrous, elegant man named Harry Powers, who promises to cherish and protect her, ultimately to marry her and to care for her and her children. Weeks later, all four Eichers are dead.

Hatching Twitter by Nick Bilton from Penguin
Nick Bilton of the New York Times takes readers behind the scenes with a narrative that shows what happened inside Twitter as it grew at exponential speeds. This is a tale of betrayed friendships and high-stakes power struggles as the four founders went from everyday engineers to wealthy celebrities.

Still Life with Bread Crumbs
by Anna Quindlen from LibraryThing.

A wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.
