Mailbox Monday ~ September 22nd

CardinalMailboxAutumnWelcome 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.

Autumn officially arrives today in the northern hemisphere. Many of my garden flowers are still hanging in there with plenty of blooms, but my vines began shrinking back this week and revealed a few early pumpkins ready for picking.

My mailbox was moderately busy with a few print books and three audio downloads for review.

    Anxious to see what you think of Neverhome, and I love the How to behave at a Tea Party. I may be making a purchase.

    Neverhome sounds interesting, even though I have yet to find a great civil war book…I haven’t really enjoyed the ones I’ve read too much.
