Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. This Meme started with Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (fka The Printed Page) and after a tour of hosts has returned to its permanent home at Mailbox Monday.
Thanks to the ladies sharing hosting duties: Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
I didn't get to post this Sunday night or Monday morning but I am posting it on Monday night. :-)
I received one audio review book this week and I realized I hadn't listed several NetGalley selections I picked up this month.
I also purchased three Kindle $.99 collections and picked up many free kindle titles.
(I still have many author requests to consider and reply to.)
Are your mailbox and TBR piles blooming?
Review TitlesThis sounds like quite the adventure! Download received from Post Hypnotic Press.
The Curve of Time
Written by: M. Wylie Blanchet
Narrated by: Heather Henderson
At a time when Vancouver Island was still an extremely remote and sparsely populated backwater, a young widow packed her five children into a 25-foot boat dubbed The Caprice and set off on an adventure. Summer after summer the brave young mother, who became known as "Capi," would set sail and explore the rugged coastline for months with her young crew. Although the hazards the family faced were numerous-tides, fog, storms, rapids, cougars, and even grizzlies-Capi brought them through it all. The Curve of Time is Capi's poignant, thoughtful, and poetic recollection of these days.This classic coastal tale has been a bestseller since it was first published in 1961. That was also the year of the author's death. In print continuously since it's original publication, this is the first time it has been made available in audio.
