Mailbox Monday


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

The team at 5 Minutes for Books is hosting in August.  Please stop by this eclectic group blog to find dozens of reviews and several giveaways.



Public Trust by J. M. Mitchell.  This is mystery with a National Park story-line -- looks fascinating! Thanks go to book publicist Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy.



On Writing Well by Howard Zinsser.  I just listened to his recent memoir, Writing Places, and it made me want to read his famous book about writing non-fiction, On Writing Well. I got the 30th Anniversary edition from Amazon, but was excited to find a very nice copy of the original edition at Booktique, the Friends of the Library store in Lake Oswego.



Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life One Conversation at a Time by Susan Scott. This looks really interesting to me. And maybe very helpful.

As a somewhat shy person, Fierce Conversations sounds like a great read. I will look forward to your thoughts on it!

Hi Gilion,

I checked out 'Fierce Conversations', as this sounds like such a confrontational title for a book. I agree totally with the ethos the author explains in the synopsis, however, I still think that the title is a bit inappropriate.

I have never read a mystery like 'Public Trust' before, so I shall be interested to read your review of this one.
