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.

What books came into your house last week?

I got one book last week from OSU Press that looks terrific. It is a much-appreciated reprint of collection of essays by award-winning nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore.

Holdfast: At Home in the Natural World by Kathleen Dean Moore.

This is available on amazon or direct from OSU Press.

Naturalist and philosopher Kathleen Dean Moore meditates on connection and separation in these twenty-one elegant, probing essays. Using the metaphor of holdfasts—the structures that attach seaweed to rocks with a grip strong enough to withstand winter gales—she examines our connections to our own bedrock.


  1. Sounds like a book I'd love...a great one for the mailbox. Hope you enjoy.

  2. I need a break from the steady crime and history that I've been reading. This would fit the bill I think.

  3. ENJOY your book!!!

    Holy Toledo!!! Sounds like you had a great time and it sure looks like you did.

    ENJOY them fun!!!

  4. Added two new books this week:
    "The Paris Wife" by Paula McLain and
    "Ed King" by David Gutersson.

    Looking forward to reading both of them.
