Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).
The team at 5 Minutes for Books is hosting in August. Please stop by this eclectic group blog to find dozens of reviews and several giveaways.
A new LibraryThing Early Reviewer book showed up last week:
Meat Eater: Adventures From the Life of an American Hunter by Steven Rinella. I asked for this one because it sounds fascinating. Rinella's essays look at the role of hunters in American history and argues that hunting is "one of the most ethically responsible things a carnivore can do." I can't say I'm ready to start shooting my own food, but he may have a point.
The author grew up in Michigan, so as a big Jim Harrison fan, I am looking forward to seeing if this non-fiction overlaps with Harrison's hunting themes.
