Mailbox Monday

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).

Yolanda at Notorious Spinks Talks is hosting in September.  One of my favorite things about participating in blog events is finding new-to-me blogs, like Yolanda's. Please pay her a visit!

I got one book last week, from the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program:

Red Fortress: History and Illusion in the Kremlin by Catherine Merridale, author of Ivan's War.

Red Fortress looks terrific.  From the description, I take it that the author had access to newly-available primary source material to write a history of Russia using the Kremlin as the organizing tool. Hubby already has his eye on this one.


  1. Hi Gilion,

    I am not really into non-fiction reading, purely because there is just not enough time for all the books I want to read now, without adding non-fiction to the mix.

    History was always a subject I excelled in at school, albeit many, many years ago now, so 'Red Fortress' would be the kind of book that would interest me without doubt.

    Catherine is also obviously very passionate about her subject, so the book is almost assured to have been well researched and interesting.

    I hope that both you and hubbie enjoy the book and have a good week.


  2. Love history books - this sounds great!

  3. It's funny how all of a sudden I'm seeing books about Russia. I'm working on a story about Lithuanians banished to Siberia and I just finished a book about cooking in Russia.
