Mailbox Monday ~ April 13th

WelcomeBirdhouseMailbox-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.

Another busy week with the added task of finally finishing up the income tax returns. As a former tax consultant I probably should have had this done weeks ago, but it’s one of those chores I tend to put off. But it’s done now and I was able to enjoy a nice weekend including a four hour walk with my bird club on Saturday and a leisurely brunch with the girlfriends on Sunday.

Here’s what arrived last week…

    The only one of those I’m familiar with is The Book of Speculation and I’m only familiar with it because I got it too.
