Mailbox Monday: Neighborhood Book Gleaning

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. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

I have a couple of great books heading my way (including Night in Shanghai by Nicole Mones), but the only books that came into my house last week are those I gleaned when out enjoying the gorgeous early spring weather.

Little Free Libraries have sprouted up in my neighborhood like daffodils.  There are at least three within six blocks of my house.  Most of them look like little peaked-roof houses with two shelves, like this one:

But my favorite pre-dates the brand name Little Free Libraries.  It is just an old, oversized black mailbox with BOOKS stenciled on the side.  I have great luck with this one.

I've taken to keeping a bag of finished books handy and grab one when I head out for a walk, so I always have a contribution ready for the first LFL I pass by.

The books I found last week are:

The Butcher's Boy by Thomas Perry (an Edgar winner)

No Uncertain Terms: More Writing from the Popular "On Language" Column in The New York Times Magazine by William Safire

Priceless: How I Went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures by Robert K. Wittman
