Monday Mailbox

Although I may not have made much progress with the books already in my house, the mailbox continued to offer me lovely additions to my stash. This week's mailbox arrivals:

The Race Underground by Doug Most came from St. Martin's Press.

Have you ever wondered about subways? They seem like slightly scary places to me so I'm very curious to read this book about two brothers, two cities, and everything that came together to create the subway system we still use today.

My Mother's Funeral by Adriana Paramo came from CavanKerry Press and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Mother and daughters, a different culture (Colombian), and memoir. What a great combination, no?

Under Magnolia by Frances Mayes came from Crown.

The South is definitely a different sort of place and I am very curious to see how Mayes, who is well known for her memoirs of living in Tuscany, recounts her early life in Georgia.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Rose City Reader 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.


  1. I'm reviewing My Mother's Funeral too and wonder how I will react to it, with my own mother's funeral still fresh in my mind!

  2. I do so like reading stories set with the "southern" angle. I have read just one or two books like this.

  3. All new to me - hope you enjoy each one!

  4. I LOVE the cover of My Mother's Funeral. Anything with a typewriter on it appeals to me. :)

    ENJOY your week.

  5. I think both My Mother's Funeral and Under Magnolia look like the type I'd enjoy. Hope their ones you have fun reading!


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.
