Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday this holiday weekend! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).
Dolce Bellezza is hosting in June, where she also just launched the seventh Japanese Literature Challenge. Be sure to visit her elegant and inspiring blog.
I'm leaving for Idaho for work this afternoon, so am posting my Mailbox Monday post early.
I got one book last week, from the author who is a doctor in Eugene, Oregon. The cover is funny, but a little shocking:
Pet Goats & Pap Smears: 101 Medical Adventures to Open Your Heart & Mind by Pamela Wible, MD. "[T]his book reveals the secrets to solving your waiting-room frustrations, slashing your medical bills, and securing first-rate health care now."
Dr. Wible has a pioneering vision of community healthcare, which you can learn more about on her Ideal Medical Care website. She has essays in two award-winning anthologies: Goddess Shift: Women Leading for a Change, along with Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, and Optimism: Cultivating the Magic Quality that Can Extend Your Lifespan, Boost Your Energy, and Make You Happy Now, along with Jimmy Carter and Steve Jobs.
You can learn more about Pamela's enthusiastic and uplifting approach to medicine on her personal blog, facebook, twitter, YouTube, and her Oregonian blog.
