Mailbox Monday

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).

MariReads is hosting in April. Please stop by her blog for some great reviews and other fun bookish posts.

Three books came to me out of the blue last week:

On the Level: A Mystery of Suspense, Romance, and Home Improvement by David Edgar Cournoyer.  The mystery involves restoring an old Queen Anne on Long Island Sound. It looks great!

The author sent me this at the suggestion of Carolyn J. Rose because we are in the middle of remodeling the kitchen in our 100-year-old house.

Direct Hit! How Facebook Destroyed My Marriage and How I Healed by Caroline Sutherland.  Sutherland is the popular author of The Body "Knows" books.  This book is the story of how her husband betrayed her, stole her identity, and tried to ruin her life.  Timely and riveting!


On Mount Hood: A Biography of Oregon's Perilous Peak by Jon Bell.  This is the new paperback edition, just in time for graduation of Father's Day gifts. It's the nicest feeling paperback I've ever come across because it has a wonderful, suede-like, thick cover. 

Jon Bell will be reading and signing books at Powell's on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 7:30.

What books came into your house last week?


  1. They sound very interesting. Will have to have a look at them.
    Mine are this week:
    Aaronovitch, Ben "Whispers Underground" and
    Piercy, Joseph "The Story of English: How an Obscure Dialect became the World`s Most-Spoken Language"

    Happy Reading.

  2. Aside from mystery and a big dash of romance, On the Level also has a lot for those interested in the debate over preserving the past or tearing it down to make way for modern construction.

  3. On the Level looks perfect for you right now.

  4. ENJOY your books.

  5. On the Level looks intriguing--great title. Hope it's good!

  6. Thanks for posting the cover of On the Level. Home remodeling, particularly historically sensitive restorations, can be either the best or worst experience of one's life. I too have a 100 year old home. I love the carpentry and hate the plumbing.
    BTW the cabinets awaiting installation in Gilian's kitchen look marvelous. David
