Mailbox Monday

Time to update on what's been arriving for my reading pleasure...

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. Visit the Mailbox Monday site to see what other bloggers are excited about.

Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Pamela Sue Hill (Editor) - I finally ordered and received a copy of this source material for the Little House novels, and started it immediately.  It's amazing to see the stories I've loved all my life in their original form.

Beautiful Ruins, by Jess Walter - I read a few reviews and since it's set mostly just north of Cinque Terre in Italy, how could I resist?

Thomas Murphy, by Richard Rosenblatt - Ireland, New York, memory, family

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain - basically, I am quiet hear me roar.  Listening to it in the car, and loving every minute that validates my penchant to think before I speak...most of the time :)

I've started the year off reading a bunch of books at once, but they're all wonderful and since it's snowing again here in Colorado, what better way to while away the winter than getting some great reading done?

Hope you have some wonderful books on your reading table too!


  1. Quiet is a fantastic book, especially if you are an introvert.

  2. I hope you enjoy your books.

  3. Looks like some good ones. Enjoy!

  4. ENJOY your books and reading week.

    I am only familiar with Beautiful Ruins.

    Have a great week.

  9. I'm so glad you got your copy of the autobiography, and that you're enjoying it already. Aren't the pictures amazing?

  10. I read Beautiful Ruins and Quiet - enjoyed them both.

  11. I really enjoyed Beautiful Ruins, so I hope you do too. I have to pick up the Laura Ingalls Wilder book someday soon. I loved and read all of her books multiple times as a child.
