Thanks mostly to the Oregon State University Press, I had a very full mailbox last week and a long list for Mailbox Monday.
Jumptown: The Golden Years of Portland Jazz 1942-1957 by Robert Dietsche (Hubby is a huge classic jazz fan, so most of what we listen to is jazz from this era. I am looking forward to learning about Portland's jazz history.)
Another Way the River Has: Taut True Tales from the Northwest by Robin Cody
City Limits: Walking Portland's Boundary by David Oates
An Architectural Guidebook to Portland by Bart King
The Grail: A Year Ambling & Shambling Through an Oregon Vinyard in Pursuit of the Best Pinot Noir Wine in the Whole Wild World by Brian Doyle (This looks fantastic!)
I also got a novel in the mail from my favorite book publicist:
The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees
And I found a boxed set of the first six volumes of John Galsworthy's Forsyte Saga. I have been meaning to read this for years and I already have the last three volumes in the same Scribner's edition. Thelast three aren't boxed, but at least all the books match.
The Man of Property
The Silver Spoon
The White Monkey
