Mailbox Monday ~ September 29th

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.

I received a couple of new books last week and I can’t wait to get started reading them. Both are non-fiction, but birds and computer tech are a couple of my favorite subjects.

New Arrivals


The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson.
This is the story of these pioneers, hackers, inventors, and entrepreneurs—who they were, how their minds worked, and what made them so creative. It’s also a narrative of how they collaborated and why their ability to work as teams made them even more creative.

The Birds of Pandemonium by Michele Raffin.
Pandemonium, the home and bird sanctuary that Raffin shares with some of the world’s most remarkable birds, is a conservation organization dedicated to saving and breeding birds at the edge of extinction, with the goal of eventually releasing them into the wild. In The Birds of Pandemonium, she lets us into her world–and theirs.

    Almost done with Greg Iles’ latest book, 788-page Nathez Burning. Like all of his books, this one is excellent – actually, one of his best.

    The bird book is gorgeous. I don’t think my guys would like the cover though – they’ve been going off at any birds on the TV lately!

      Yeah, they do that! I had Charlie (my lovebird) out on the back deck and she was quite vocal chattering away at the birds in the yard.
