Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Katherine Carlyle by Rupert Thomson came from Other Press.

A story about who you are that weaves in IVF and absence and family and loss, this sounds really interesting.

The Nurses Alexandra Robbins came from Workman.

I have a lot of friends who are or have been nurses and I'm fascinated by the culture they face at work so this book plays right into that for me.

Find the Good by Heather Lende came from Algonquin.

An obituary writer from small town Alaska giving advice on how to live? Sign me right up!

Love and Miss Communication by Elyssa Friedland came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

How could you not want to read a book where a woman puts down her smart phone and starts living life offline?

The Surfacing by Cormac James came from Bellevue Literary Press.

Searching for Franklin's lost expedition, a crew trapped in Arctic ice, and a stowaway who will give birth to the Captain's baby in this forbidding landscape, this one really appeals to me.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. I got a couple of the same books. My mom is an RN so The Nurses sounds interesting to me.

  2. Most of my college roomies were nursing students. I'll bet this book will be popular!

  3. Have a good week enjoing your books.

  4. They all sound good! I hope you enjoy them!


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.
