Mailbox Monday + Books Bought (February 8): The (Belated) Birthday Edition
My birthday was actually a week ago today, but it got celebrated several times this past week (yay for birthday weeks) and here are the books I got:
My friend Andrea gave me Slow Death by Rubber Duck: how the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie with Sarah Dopp; my sister-out-law* gave me The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth about What Treatments Work and Why by Jonny Bowden; and I bought myself Butterflies on a Sea Wind: Beginning Zen by Anne Rudloe and Go Fish: The Full Original Screenplay by Guinevere Turner and Rose Troche. The latter two will count towards the World Religion Challenge and the GLBT Reading Challenge, respectively, once I get around to signing up for these challenges...
What did you find in your mailbox this past week and/or what books did you buy for yourself?
