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 three terrific new books last week:
The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Presidents: From Wilson to Obama by Steven F. Hayward.
This is exactly what I need for a refresher course on 20th+ Century Presidents. Hayward is as witty and irreverent as ever. And he gets right to the point with his system of grading US Presidents on how strictly they adhered to their oath to uphold the Constitution. It looks like I could learn a little while I'm laughing.
Buried in the Sky: The Extraordinary Story of the Sherpa Climbers on K2's Deadliest Day by Peter Zuckerman and Amanda Padoan.
I'd like to read this one because it looks great, but I'll have to wait for Hubby to finish, since he snatched it a way from me the minute it came out of the envelope. It is so right up his alley.
The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman. This looks like an incredible novel!
I won it in a giveaway on the Chunkster Reading Challenge. Thanks for hosting, Wendy and Vasilly!
