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).
Marcia herself is hosting in November. Seem like old times! Please go by and visit her Mailbox Monday site to see all the people participating and remember to stop by her wonderful blog.
I got a couple of good books last week and something fun:
Portland in Three Centuries: The Place and the People by Carl Abbott, published by OSU Press. It looks like a concise, readable history of Portland, and I love the cool zine cover.
A Simple Machine, Like the Lever by Evan P. Schneider, published by the super nifty Propeller Books.
I also got a fun little bookish thing from The Joy of Ex Foundation that would make a pretty great Christmas present for some ladies I know. Mine is unframed, but still very cute. It doesn't apply all that well to my book club, because we read the books as well as the wine labels, but I appreciate the sentiment.
