Mailbox Monday (May 16): More Portland Loot!

Mailbox Monday buttonMailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books they received during the previous week. Warning: MM can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and huge wish lists! Mailbox Monday, which was started by Marcia (who now blogs at A girl and her books) is on blog tour—this month, it’s hosted by Mari at MariReads.

My box of books from Portland arrived this past week (yay!). These are the rest of the books I bought at Powell’s Books and The Title Wave Used Book Store (see my post last week for the first lot).

First the mysteries:


Then the graphic novels:


Then the oddballs (one SF, one memoir):


What did you find in your mailbox this past week? For other Mailbox Monday posts, head over to MariReads.

  4. I just read and reviewed Nylon Road not too long ago! I'm actually going to use it in my Intro to Lit class this Fall, so I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.
