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).

Metroreader hosting in February. Please stop by her fun blog to see what she is reading on her commute!

I got one book last week and it didn't come in my mailbox, it came magically to my iPhone because I downloaded the free Kindle app that lets me read e-books on my phone.  I don't really like reading a book on a screen, but it is handy to have when I get stuck somewhere without a book with me.

I got this one because it is by a Portland author, it sounds good, the cover is terrific, and it only cost $.99!

The Hapless Valet by Lenhardt Stevens



In Stevens’ debut novel, a celebrity with a history of eco-terrorism, a 1950s film noir star’s mysterious past and a jazz club owner looking to make fast money collide in rainy Portland with professional valet Draper Burns (that’s the jack-of-all-trades servant kind, not the kind that parks cars).
 From the Kirkus Indie review.
