Good Crikey, How did July get here so fast? I was just getting the hang of June. It’s been busy here and I keep thinking I’m going to get back to regular blogging and then, well, life gets in the way. Last week we’re were busy moving my Mother-in-law in and getting a routine settled. We’re getting our 15 year 0ld boy ready for a trip to the Pacific Northwest to visit his Grandpa and Uncles and then the usual summer activity. Here’s finger’s crossed I’ll be back now to blogging as usual.

So, on this Mailbox Monday Tuesday I’ll be doing three weeks worth of mailboxes. Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A Girl and Her Books (formerly The Printed Page). The month of July is being hosted by Gwendolyn at A Sea of Books. Mailbox Monday is such a fun way to find out what new books everyone is getting and giving me, at least, many more books to add to my reading list.

Like I said this is from the past three weeks so there are just a few……

From Paperback Book Swap:

Hetty: The Genius and Madness of America’s First Female Tycoon by Charles Slack.
Angel at Troublesome Creek by Mignon F. Ballard

The mailman also brought me:
