Mailbox Monday ~ January 23rd

WinterBirdsMailbox-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 a nice variety of books last week — a thriller and a humorous non-fiction book about books. Plus audiobooks on two of my favorite topics — gardening and birds.

Speaking of gardening, a burst of warm air arrived in Chicago on Saturday giving me the opportunity to get outside and re-pot a few of my plants that I had hastily brought in before the frost last fall. It was invigorating to breath the fresh, spring-like air. If only it would stick around.

New Arrivals


A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell from Harper.
A remarkable tale of psychological suspense—a clever and twisting free-fall of a ride filled with betrayals and reversals, twists and turns, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.

Printer’s Error: Irreverent Stories from Book History by Rebecca Romney from Harper.
A funny and entertaining history of printed books as told through absurd moments in the lives of authors and printers, collected by television’s favorite rare-book expert from HISTORY’s hit series Pawn Stars.

New Audiobooks


The Thing with Feathers: The Surprising Lives of Birds and What They Reveal about Being Human by Noah Strycker from Tantor.

In this moving memoir, a woman digs into a garden and into the past and finds secrets, beauty, and acceptance.
