Mailbox Monday

What books came into your house last week? Four books made their way into my house:

Coco Chanel: An Illustrated Biography (Library of Luminaries) by Zena Alkayat (Author) and Nina Cosford (Illustrator), published by Chronicle Books. Très belle! Très chic!

Bloody Marys: Sanguine Solutions for a Slew of Situations by Judy Bennett. Recipes and hilarity.

Where the Wind Dreams of Staying:Searching for Purpose and Place in the West by Eric Dieterle. A new memoir, published by OSU Press.

The Jewish Oregon Story, 1950-2010 by Ellen Eisenberg, also published by OSU Press.

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.

  3. I like the idea of an illustrated biography, and the one with the recipes....

  4. Hi Gilion,

    You have a great mix of storylines this week, although like Elizabeth, I was also captivated by the powerful cover art of 'Where The Wind Dreams Of Staying'.

    Whilst I don't really drink and a Bloody Mary would be my worst nightmare of a cocktail, the book itself sounds hilarious and definitely one to be read when you have had one or two of the offending beverages :)

    Enjoy all your new finds :)
