Mailbox Monday #163

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at A Girl and Her Books, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch. This month’s host is the Metro Reader.

Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.

Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received this week:

1. West of Here by Jonathan Evison, unrequested from Algonquin Books, which I’ll likely pass on.

2. Resilience edited by Eric Nguyen, sent to me by poet Emma Eden Ramos for review. “Money from the sale of this book will be used to help fund The Make It Safer Project, which aims to bring LGBT-related books into schools and homeless shelters and into the hands of LGBT kids. For more information on the Make It Safe Project, visit www.makeitsafeproject.org. For more information on Resilience, visit www.betterbookproject.blogspot.com.”

3. The Virgin Journals by Travis Laurence Naught for review from the poet.

4. Gabby by Gabrielle Gifford and Mark Kelly, borrowed from my mom.

5. Coming Up For Air by George Orwell, which I bought at the library for 50 cents.

6. Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal, which I received from LibraryThing Early Reviewers for April review.
