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).
Yolanda at Notorious Spinks Talks is hosting in September. One of my favorite things about participating in blog events is finding new-to-me blogs, like Yolanda's. Please pay her a visit!
I got one book last week, from the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program:
Red Fortress: History and Illusion in the Kremlin by Catherine Merridale, author of Ivan's War.
Red Fortress looks terrific. From the description, I take it that the author had access to newly-available primary source material to write a history of Russia using the Kremlin as the organizing tool. Hubby already has his eye on this one.
