Mailbox Monday ~ September 1st

Sunflower-Butterfly-MailboxWelcome 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.

Another busy week for me, which meant another slow week on the blog. I did find a few things in my mailbox. A couple of new print books and an audiobook.

New Arrivals


How We Got to Now by Steven Johnson from Riverhead.
In this illustrated volume, Steven Johnson explores the history of innovation over centuries, tracing facets of modern life (refrigeration, clocks, and eyeglass lenses, to name a few) from their creation by hobbyists, amateurs, and entrepreneurs to their unintended historical consequences.

The Lost by Sarah Beth Durst from Harlequin MIRA.
Lauren finds herself trapped in a town called Lost on the edge of a desert, filled with things abandoned, broken and thrown away. And when she tries to escape, impassable dust storms and something unexplainable lead her back to Lost again and again.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty from Penguin Audio.
Pirriwee Public’s annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder.

How was your week?

    The Big Little Lies audio is excellent! I couldn’t put it down. How We Got to Know sounds fascinating.
