Mailbox Monday ~ July 30th

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.

Three weeks in a row I’m writing my Monday post from my outdoor office (aka backyard deck). Another gorgeous morning, but don’t tell the weather gods that Chicago is supposed to be hot, humid and miserable this time of year.

At the last minute I found out that there was a Reverse Summer Readathon this past weekend, but I was only able to participate for a few hours as I already had Saturday commitments. The readathon is always one of my favorite events; I love the way it joins the book community worldwide.

A few new books last week . . .

New Arrivals

The Amazing Adventures of Aaron Broom by A.E. Hotchner, a win from from Bookreporter’s Summer Reading and Doubleday.

A heartwarming amateur detective story set in Depression-Era St. Louis from beloved author A.E. Hotchner.

The Splendor Before the Dark by Margaret George from Berkley Group.

Ascending to the throne was only the beginning… Now Margaret George, the author of The Confessions of Young Nero, weaves a web of politics and passion, as ancient Rome’s most infamous emperor cements his place in history.

Birds and Their Feathers by Britta Teckentrup from Kathy at BermudaOnion. Thank you so much. Kathy knows how much I love birds!

The creator of The Egg returns to her avian explorations with this wondrous, charming, and informative examination of feathers.

    I’m sure I learned more from Birds and Their Feathers than you will but I think you’ll still enjoy the book. I hope all three books re winners.
