Mailbox Monday


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).

Tasha at Book Obsessed is hosting in July. Please stop by Tasha's busy blog, where she focuses on romance novels, with some mystery and suspense thrown in.

I got two books last week, one for book club and the other as a treat.



Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. I am looking forward to this one.



Plants and Their Application to Ornament: A Nineteenth-Century Design Primer by Eugène Grasset.  I've had my eye on this for a while and finally decided to spring for it.
