Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).
The Bluestocking Guide is hosting in June. Please visit her wonderful blog,which is jam-packed with reviews, essays, and other bookish features.
I got four books last week:
The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America's Emerging Battle Over Food Rights by David E. Gumpert. I bought this because it is an issue I am becoming more and more interested in.
I've been writing about raw milk and other Food Freedom issues on my law firm's blog: Here is my post concerning the recent arrest of an Amish farmer; and here is my post about buying raw milk in Germany.
Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories From the Local Food Front by Joel Salatin. I bought this for the same reason. And because the cover made me laugh.
The Hair of Harold Roux]by Thomas Williams. This is a re-issue of the 1975 National Book Award winner. I got it through the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.
Spinning the Law: Trying Cases in the Court of Public Opinion by Kendall Coffey. I got this from the Internet Review of books to do a review ASAP.
Many thanks to all those who participated in my recent book giveaway. It was heartening to see this nonfiction book generate that kind of enthusiasm.
Congratulations go to Gwendolyn B. of A Sea of Books who won the giveaway of Murder in the High Himalaya: Loyalty, Tragedy, and Escape from Tibet by Jonathan Green.
This looks like a really interesting book. What's more, because this is a leapfrog giveaway, Gwendolyn will also get to do a giveaway of her own for another copy of the book.
Thanks go to Mary Bisbee-Beek for making the giveaway possible. Mary is a dedicated and truly remarkable book publicist.
