Mailbox Monday ~ March 3rd

WinterCardinalMailbox-smlWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

By March there are usually some small signs of spring – a few early bulbs poking out of the ground, birds singing, a hint of warm breeze in the air. Nope. None of that this year. We are still buried under snow and breaking all-time cold records for sub-freezing temperatures. So the snowy mailbox stays up for another week.

New Arivals

William Shakespeare’s the Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher From Quirk Books
Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter.

The Homing Instinct: Meaning and Mystery in Animal Migration by Bernd Heinrich from Amazon Vine.
Acclaimed scientist and author Bernd Heinrich has returned every year since boyhood to a beloved patch of western Maine woods. What is the biology in humans of this deep-in-the-bones pull toward a particular place, and how is it related to animal homing?


The Perfect Score Project: Uncovering the Secrets of the SAT by Debbie Stier .
The Perfect Score Project is an indispensable guide to acing the SAT – as well as the affecting story of a single mom’s quest to light a fire under her teenage son.

The Moon Sisters by Therese Walsh from Crown Books.
A beautiful coming-of-age novel about two sisters on a journey to forgive their troubled mother, with a sheen of almost-magical realism that overlays a story about the love of a family, and especially between sisters.

    I bet The Homing Instinct is good – love to know about how birds migrate and then find their way home.

    The Moon Sisters sound interesting. I enjoy Magical Realism.

    I’m listening to The Perfect Score Project and it’s interesting but I feel like parents of younger children would like it more than I am. It includes a lot of test prep hints. The Homing Instinct looks perfect for you!

    The Homing Instinct looks excellent, for a birdwatcher like myself! Enjoy!
