Mailbox Memorial Day

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday this holiday weekend! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

Abi at 4 the Love of Books is hosting in May. Please visit her fun, inspirational blog.

I got two books last week:

Full-Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest by Sandi Doughton, published by Sasquatch Books. This is a terrifying, if accurate, explanation of why Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver are the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake -- a mega-quake -- in the continental United States.

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. I was in Dufur, Oregon last week for work and found this on the Take One/Leave One shelf at the charming and historic Balch Hotel.


  1. I have heard so much good about Edgar Satelle! Enjoy your new books :)

  2. Growing up in California I definitely think Full-Rip 9.0 looks interesting. But while growing while we had earthquake drills, and I've experience and remember a few, earthquake tend not to be something that really scares me.

  3. I bought Edgar Sawtelle at a Borders fire sale and still haven't read it, despite the author being a fellow Coloradoan, a fact that matters to me.

    I'll be haunting your site, to see if you read it and liked it! I need some encouragement :)
