As always, a big thanks to Marcia from The Printed Page for hosting Mailbox Monday, where bookish folk talk about the books they received in the mail, purchased, or otherwise obtained during the past week.
I'm a bit late getting my post up today, but I'm exhausted from the weekend. We did our spring cleaning on Saturday -- one day before the official start of summer. Hey, at least we made the "deadline." :) I concentrated on the bedroom, organizing my desk, storing my yarn, and making space for all my books. Still haven't purchased a replacement bookshelf; we're hoping to replace a few pieces of furniture in the coming months and I want them to match. For Father's Day, Serena, The Girl, and I watched the men play softball, and they won their first game (just in time for the season to come to an end). Hooray!
Anyway, here are the books I received last week:
Millie's Fling by Jill Mansell (from Danielle Jackson at Sourcebooks)
Broken Birds: The Story of My Momila by Jeannette Katzir (from the author)
Hunter by Campbell Jeffries (from the author)
I couldn't find a link to this book anywhere online, but it has to do with Nazi war criminals living in Australia and a young boy who befriends them. It sounded like an interesting read for the WWII reading challenge.
Priceless Memories by Bob Barker (with Digby Diehl) (contest win from Books & Needlepoint)
My hubby can't wait to listen to this one on the way to the campground next week!
Finally, here are the Asian Heritage Month books I won at S. Krishna's Books:
The Fortune Cookie Chronicles: Adventures in the World of Chinese Food by Jennifer 8. Lee
Strangers From a Different Shore: A History of Asian Americans by Ronald Takaki
Trail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love and the Search for Home by Kim Sunée
Transparency: Stories by Frances Hwang
Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee
