Monday Mailbox

Only one book this past week. Think that'll help me catch up on the backlog? Nah...me either. But it's a nice thought anyway! This past week's mailbox arrival:

Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman came from Miriam at Hachette for a book tour.
I have drooled over this memoir of Gilman and a friend's desire to trek around the world starting in China since it came out in hardback. It didn't hurt that I thought her Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress was darn funny too. I have big expectations for this.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

  14. I like the paperback cover better than the hard back. It's cool.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
