As most of you know Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Thank you once again Marcia for hosting this weekly event. :)
I had a busy weekend that took me to Hyde Park, NY where I visited the FDR Library and Museum and Val-Kil. I will blog a bit for Sunday Salon..although it will be Monday. I picked up two books at the gift shop about Eleanor Roosevelt. Eleanor and Amelia Go for A Ride is a special picture book I used to read to my classes in both middle school and elementary school. It is a wonderful little known story about Amelia Earhart and Eleanor Roosevelt (my two favorite heros in history) and the night Amelia took Mrs. Roosevelt for an airplane ride. They were friends and they managed to escape the Secret Service tail in order to enjoy a whimsical night of riding in Eleanor's roadster and Amelia's plane. I love this book and never had my own copy. Thanks to my sweet cousin I now have my own copy.
I also received:
Eleanor Roosevelt Her Day, A Personal Album by A. David Gurewitsch, MD.
Elizabeth Captive Princess, by Margaret Irwin
Wicked Company, by Ciji Ware
Lady of Hay, by Barbara Erskine
From the author, Roxane Tepfer Sanford I received,.....All That is Beautiful the sequel to The Girl in the Lighthouse. I can't wait to read this one. The Girl in the Lighthouse was a moving and heart stopping read that I reviewed on my blog last year.
Happy Mailbox Monday to all! What did you get and which do you think you would like the best out of my mailbox?
