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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

I got one book for work last week and three for fun:

Know Tiny Secrets: How To Keep Your Body Private and Safe by Latasha Fleming with illustrations by Colleen Madden.

This is a book for parents to read with their 4 - 9 year olds to teach them how to be safe from sex abuse in an age-appropriate way. It is very well done and is available in paperback or Kindle. Learn more at

Diary of a Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafiel. Published in 1930, Diary is a humorous account of the domestic life of a middle class British wife and mother.

God's Pocket by Pete Dexter. This is his debut novel, reprinted. I've read his more famous Paris Trout and The Paperboy, so I'll try this one, although I think they made a movie out of it that I couldn't get through.

The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession by Susan Orlean. I've never read this.

I've read Diary and loved it.

God's Pocket seems to be the first of Pete Dexter's novels. I wonder how much his 1981 beating affected the story line. If it was me, it would all be there!!

God's Pocket looks good.

Love the cover.

ENJOY your books and reading week.

I've heard really good things about "The Orchid Thief" and will be interested to see what you think.
