Mailbox Monday #30



Mailbox Monday is sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page. It's not only a list of books that I received in the mail, but also books I bought or received from the library and friends over the last week.







1. Beach Trip by Cathy Holton for review for August from Ballantine Books.






2. At the Threshold of Alchemy by poet John Amen, editor of Pedestal Magazine, for review.








3. 2 copies of The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire by C.M. Mayo, signed by the author at her recent appearance at The Writer's Center. Check out my review here.

Agree about the Mayo book. I love Latin American stories.

I have no idea what The Beach Trip is about, but I'd read it. I want to go on a beach trip 365 days a year! I've seen the Mayo book around, and it has gotten some decent reviews.

I'm really looking forward to the Mayo book. I'll be interested to hear your take on it!
