Mailbox Monday ~ April 29th

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’m leaving my springtime mailbox graphic up even though we had 4 inches of snow Saturday. I think that was a record for late season snowfall here. With all the cool night temperatures and occasional frost warning the past few weeks, I delayed planting my garden. Good thing I did, but I was not expecting shoveable snow.

I got a couple new books that I hope might get me out of my reading slump. I even went to the library to see if anything there would get me excited. I’m still listening to audio, but reading has become a strain on my eyes. A trip to the eye doctor confirmed that my vision has changed so I an getting new glasses.

New Arrivals

Emily Eternal by M.G. Wheaton from Grand Central Publishing through AmazonVine.

Meet Emily, “the best AI character since HAL 9000” (Blake Crouch). She can solve advanced mathematical problems, unlock the mind’s deepest secrets, but unfortunately, even she can’t restart the sun.

Space 2.0: How Private Spaceflight, a Resurgent Nasa, and International Partners Are Creating a New Space Age by Rod Pyle from Benbella Books through AmazonVine.

In Space 2.0, space historian Rod Pyle, in collaboration with the National Space Society, will give you an inside look at the next few decades of spaceflight and long-term plans for exploration, utilization, and settlement.

    I tried to comment earlier, without success. Something about signing in to my e-mail account. Trying again.

    Enjoy your books.

    I’m glad to hear you had delayed the garden. Sorry about the snow.
    I do hope the new glasses help you. I have recently started wearing magnifiers… time for me to see the eye doctor too.
    I like both of your titles. Happy Reading!
