Monday Mailbox

Having been gone for so long, I didn't expect anything to land in my mailbox this week, especially since I have only just begun to dig myself out from under the avalanche of e-mail that accumulated while I was gone and haven't yet responded to a single review request! But somehow two books still found their way into my mailbox. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Surprised by Oxford by Carolyn Weber came from Thomas Nelson.
Set in Oxford, this is a year long memoir about a woman finding religion in a very unlikely place: graduate school.

Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me by Ian Morgan Cron came from Thomas Nelson
This one is a spiritual memoir, cycling back through the author's childhood relationship with his father and how that informed his faith.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Life in the Thumb as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
