Mailbox Monday ~ December 11th

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.

I’ve been volunteering extra hours for the parrot rescue the past few weeks helping promote and feature the birds on our Facebook page and website, which meant less time for reading and blogging. Without meaning to, I have become the social media and technology coordinator.

Here’s what arrived in my mailbox last week . . .

New Arrivals

North on the Wing: Travels with the Songbird Migration of Spring by Bruce M. Beehler from Smithsonian Books through AmazonVine.

The story of an ornithologist’s journey to trace the spring migration of songbirds from the southern border of the United States through the heartland and into Canada.

Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country by Steve Almond from Red Hen Press.

Almond looks to literary voices―from Melville to Orwell, from Bradbury to Baldwin―to help explain the roots of our moral erosion as a people.

    Enjoy your books. I am curious about Bad Stories. Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    I hope you enjoy your news books. Bad Stories has left me very intrigued – I’m doing my MA in Anglo-American Studies and it seems something I would read for my essays.

    Happy readings! 😉
