Mailbox Monday

What books came into your house last week?

I got one book I was looking forward to:

Seeing the World: How US Universities Make Knowledge in a Global Era by Mitchell Stevens, Cynthia Miller-Idriss, and Seteney Shami. This short book looks at how US universities are slowly coming around to the need for a global perspective in the study of economics, political science, and sociology. It's a bit wonky, but interesting.

I also stopped at my favorite Friends of the Library bookstore and got a stack of books:

It might be a while before I get around to reading any of these. Books tend to percolate on my shelves before I read them.

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 Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.


  1. I just love to search through preloved books. I regularly visit my local charity shop. Like you the books can sit on my shelf for quite a while before I read them.

  2. Love finding books at places other than a "new" book store.

    I always enjoy our library sales.

    Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your books and your week.

  3. Nice stack of books you picked up. Seeing The World sounds interesting.
    Happy Reading!
