Mailbox Monday, January 11, 2010

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. :)

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This week in my mailbox I received:

I read about this book a short time ago on Musings of a Bookish Kitty's Blog. When I read her fabulous review of Guests of the Ayatollah, I ordered it right away and it just arrived this past week. I can't wait to get started on this one. I recall this dark time in our nation's history and I will be anxious to read how history records the event. Written in 2006, the reviews are spectacular. Mark Bowden is also the author of Black Hawk Down.

Wendy did a great review of this one. Glad it made you pick this up! Hope you enjoy it too :)

Serena said...

can't wait to see your review of this book. happy reading.

We listened to this on tape. Mark Bowden is a good writer, but he's pretty conservative, and definitely writes from that perspective. I'll be interested to see what you think!

I remember those times very well. It must be a facinating book. I loved your MM picture. Pricelss.

I remember Wendy's review, and I'm looking forward to yours.

I hope you enjoy Guests of a Ayatollah, Wisteria. I didn't get a conservative vibe when I read the book, but that's just me (and I tend to lean more left than right).
