Mailbox Monday & GIVEAWAY

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.

My mailbox was jam-packed last week.  All are books that are going straight to my Guilt List, but I've been feeling energized to read my Guilt List books lately, so that is not a bad thing.

Murder in the High Himalaya: Loyalty, Tragedy, and Escape from Tibet by Jonathan Green.

This looks great! This is a book -- and a story -- that is gettign a lot of buzz. Mine is the new paperback edition.

GIVEAWAY: Thanks to Mary Bisbee-Beek, intrepid book publicist, I have an extra copy of this book to give away.  Details of the GIVEAWAY are on this post. Even better, Mary has another giveaway copy for the person who wins -- it's a leapfrog giveaway! Go HERE to sign up.

The Oregon Experiment by Keith Scribner.  I don't really know what to expect from this new novel, but it looks intriguing.

Voodoo Vintners: Oregon's Astonishing Biodynamic Winegrowers by Katherine Cole.  OSU Press sent this to me and it has piqued my interest.  This will count as one of my Foodie's Reading Challenge books.

The Luminist by David Rocklin.  Illicit love and photography in 19th century Ceylon -- sounds good to me!

This is another beautiful Hawthorne Books edition, with the fancy French covers. Love it.

Aftermath by Scott Nadelson.  This is a new collection of stories, also in a lush Hawthorne Books edition.

I really enjoyed Nadelson's earlier collection, Saving Stanley, which I reviewed here. I am looking forward to this one.

On Mt. Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak by Jon Bell. Another good one from OSU Press. I look at My. Hood every day -- now I can learn about it.


  1. Enjoy your new books. These are all new titles to me. Happy reading!

  2. A very Oregon themed week for you! Enjoy!

  3. On Mt. Hood sounds good and to think you can look at the real thing every day.

  4. Hi Gilion,
    Thanks much for the mention! Love your site too.

    Jon Bell

  5. ALL of these looks like wonderful reads. Hope you enjoy them.

  6. Hmmm. A mountain of really intriguing books. Happy reading!!

  7. Oh, my gosh! I LOVE your mailbox this week! What a lot of great-looking reads! Enjoy!

  8. I know it's incredibly shallow of me but I can't stand the texture of the Oregon Experiment cover. I'm going to have to remove it while I'm reading.
