Mailbox Monday ~ November 2nd

AutumnChickadeeMailbox-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.

Nothing new in the physical mailbox last week. That’s ok as I have more than enough books that I want to get to soon. Plus, I’ve stopped accepting all but the most tempting new books for the next few months; at least until I get a little caught up. I couldn’t resist requesting an eGalley of The Genius of Birds, my only new title last week.

New Arrivals

GeniusOfBirds.jpgThe Genius of Birds
by Jennifer Ackerman
from NetGalley.

This elegant scientific investigation and travelogue weaves personal anecdotes with fascinating science. Ackerman delivers an extraordinary story that will both give readers a new appreciation for the exceptional talents of birds and let them discover what birds can reveal about our changing world. Incredibly informative and beautifully written, The Genius of Birds richly celebrates the triumphs of these surprising and fiercely intelligent creatures.

How was your week?

    Enjoy your new book! I hear you about trying to catch up…unfortunately, I went ahead and downloaded some books…and got a couple of review books.

    I too am cutting way back on what I accept to review/tour. My life needs a little less stress right now.

    Love the pretty bird on the cover of the book. Have a great week!
