Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

Passages to the Past is hosting in April. Please visit Amy's entertaining and comprehensive blog devoted to historical fiction.
I got some great books last week:
The Thunder Tree: Lessons From an Urban Wildland by Robert Michael Pyle (from OSU Press)

Cimarron Rose by James Lee Burke (for which he won the Edgar Award)

The Private Patient by P. D. James (a very nice hardback I found at a book sale at the history museum in Shelton, WA)

Principle-Centered Leadership by Stephen R. Covey (author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

Rebus: The Lost Years by Ian Rankin (a three-novel omnibus that includes Let It Bleed, Black & Blue, and The Hanging Garden). I'm on a Rebus tear now that I finished listening (out of order) to Strip Jack and went back and read the first one, Knots and Crosses

What books came into your house last week?

I haven't read any Ian Rankin in a while.

It looks like you have a great selection of books.

Happy reading

These titles are all new to me but look interesting. Enjoy them all.

P D James is always good! the others are new to me as well.

Looks like lots of good reading coming your way! I wonder if Cimarron Rose takes place in Ok? Anytime I hear Cimarron it is something to do with Ok.

Happy Mailbox day!
