Mailbox Monday ~ July 11th

SpringBirdsFenceMailbox-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.

I received one new book in the mail and a couple of audio downloads last week.

New Arrivals


Valley of the Moon by Melanie Gideon from LibraryThing.
A woman who feels lost in her own time stumbles across a California community that has, impossibly, been marooned in the early twentieth century.


Audio Downloads


The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee from Simon and Schuster.
A magnificent history of the gene and a response to the defining question of the future: What becomes of being human when we learn to “read” and “write” our own genetic information?

Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley from Simon and Schuster.
Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all. Remember the last book you told someone they had to read? Lily and the Octopus is the next one.

    I’ve heard Lily and the Octopus is good. Valley of the Moon looks good too.

    I’ve got THE GENE on audio and think it will be very interesting. I’ll have to be in the mood for it though. Enjoy!
