Mailbox Monday

Thanks go to Avis of She Reads and Reads for hosting Mailbox Monday in October.

Three books came into my house last week:

Mink River by Brian Doyle.  This was a hostess gift from a very thoughtful friend. I am looking froward to it because it is a novel by the author of The Grail: A Year Ambling & Shambling Through an Oregon Vineyard in Pursuit of the Best Pinot Noir Wine in the Whole Wild World, which I really liked and reviewed here.

American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields by Rowan Jacobsen. This is a LibraryThing Early Reviewer book. I've been limiting my ER choices, but this one sounded very interesting to me.

61 Hours by Lee Child.  This one came as a result of the book chain letter I sent out a couple of months ago. I am a big Lee Child fan and have read all his Jack Reacher novels except this, his latest. I'll be turning to it very soon.How fun!


  1. Interesting cover of Mink River. Hope you enjoy it!

  2. I was just convinced to start reading Lee Child's Reacher series and have the first one on request from the library. I'm glad to see you're a fan too!

  3. Mink River has a very interesting cover. I have a Lee Child book here that came by mistake but it looks so good that I think I may have to read it. Enjoy your new books!

  4. Is that a raven on the cover of Mink River???

    I agree with everyone... that is one very interesting cover.

    Have a great week!

    aisle B books are at

  5. What a great hostess gift! American Terroir looks interesting too.

  6. I love Mink the best of all. She looks like a raven. There are other black birds, right?

  7. Where are the kitten pics??? :-)

  8. Love, love, love the Reacher books. I just finished this one and it was lotsa fun, although it ends on a cliff hanger.

  9. Mary -- The cover of Mink River is eye catching!

    nomadreader -- I love the Jack Reacher series. It sags a little in the middle, but when he's on his game, he is the best. The first one may be my favorite. Enjoy.

    Beth -- The Lee Child series is fun because you don't have to read them in order.

    Aisle B -- Raven? Crow? I can't tell the difference. Thanks for leaving your link.

    bermuda -- I agree! A book makes a very nice hostess gift.

    Tea -- Crows are the only ones I know.

    J.G. -- I am trying to limit Kittie pics, although I am tempted!

    Caitlin -- I love that you are a serious reader and a Reacher Creature! Me too!

    Mystica -- Thanks! And thanks for visiting.

  10. I saw Lee Child profiled on one of the Sunday morning news programs. I'm going to have to read his work at some point. Enjoy your new books!

  11. It's a crow. His name is Moses. He's reaaaaal interesting and thoughtful -- well, I think so, anyway.


  12. diaryofaneccentric -- I've been a Lee Child fan since I saw him speak at a writers' conference. He spins a good yarn.

    Brian -- Thanks for visiting and clearing up the whole raven/crow thing. I'm looking forward to your book!
