Mailbox Monday - June 14th - 19th, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Hosted by Marcia over at the Printed Page, 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!


I can't believe another week has passed already! Where does the time go? Well, I've got one great new book in my mailbox this week. Let me know what you got!

  9. Amused -- this is actually a response to a comment you left on my author interview. I didn't realize that you live in San Francisco. I recently moved back to Portland from SF. There is a book called The Food Lover's Guide to San Francisco -- similar format, etc., to the Portland version. Great book and chock full of useful info. I found it indispensable.

  11. Thanks everyone for commenting! I picked this book mainly because it was longlisted for the Orange Prize for fiction and then the description of it being set in Morocco sounded fantastic!

    Rose City Reader - I will keep an eye out for that book! We are so lucky to have lived in two such 'foodie' cities!
