Mailbox Monday

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).

Alyce at At Home With Books is hosting in January.  Please stop by her wonderful blog!

I got a stack of books last week:

Wild in the City: Exploring the Intertwine: The Portland-Vancouver Region's Network of Parks, Trails, and Natural Areas by Michael C. Houck and M. J. Cody (a good inspiration to get out there and do some hiking; from OSU Press)

Light on the Devils: Coming of Age on the Klamath by Louise Wagenknecht (from OSU Press and a good pick for the Memorable Memoirs challenge)

Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield (thanks go to Amused By Books because I won this in her December giveaway)

I got a stack of books from Second Glance Books to fill in a couple Santa forgot to bring:

Death at the President's Lodging by Michael Innes (a new to me author; this is the first in his Inspector Appleby series and perfect for the Vintage Mystery challenge)

A Comedy of Terrors by Michael Innes (the 6th Appleby mystery)

Arthur & George by Julian Barnes

My Life As a Man by Philip Roth

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith (in a nice, but very plain, boxed edition with illustrations; this will be my "classic play" choice for the Back to the Classics challenge; it is on the Easton Press Greatest 100 list)


  1. I hope that you enjoy! all of your books.

  2. Wow, you got lots of new to me books! Glad the font book arrived safely! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did :)

  3. Light on the Devils looks fantastic! I grew up in a family of sawmill workers, so I'd be curious to see what our experiences had in common.

  4. Just My Type looks interesting.

    Enjoy all your new books!

  5. Looks like a nice variety of books. Enjoy!

  6. I think I won Just My Type somewhere too. I need to investigate that. Enjoy your new books!
