Mailbox Monday ~ September 18th

Welcome 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.

Summer returned this week and while I enjoy the warmer weather, I wasn’t happy about the humidity and the need to turn on the air conditioner.

There were no new books in my physical mailbox last week. I did, however, download some new audio books over the past few weeks. I haven’t been requesting much since I have a fairly large backlog of books to read and lately I’ve been finding it easier to listen. And aging eyes are partly the cause. Plus I find it more and more difficult to read comfortably in the evening with the lower light. I guess that is what large print books are for!

    The Bredesen book sounds interesting. I’ll watch for your review. There’s so much good buzz about the Ng book lately. It’s on my TBR list. Have a good week, Leslie!

    It looks like you’re in for some good listening. I grabbed Little Fires Everywhere too and plan to listen to it next. I hope we both love it.

    Enjoy all your books. I keep seeing Little Fires Everywhere today. I like to read on my kindle in the evenings, I admit partly because I can control the font size.
