Mailbox Monday-July 23rd

Mailbox Monday is a great meme that has us list the books that we receive.  Different bloggers now have the opportunity to host this meme for a month at a time.  This month you can check out what everyone received over at Mrs. Q: Book Addict.

Here is what surprised me in my mailbox:
True Believers by Kurt Andersen

True Believers was a complete surprise to me and since I freely admit that I am a cover judger, this book did not initially appeal to me.  After reading the description I did develop a change of heart.  It does sound interesting!

Last week turned out to be emotionally draining, so I'm hoping to get things back on track this week.  My Grandma passed away Wednesday morning and that lady has been such an important part of my life.  I do plan to post more about her this week, once I've had a chance to compile my thoughts.  This morning I am going to head out to the solitude of my garden and ponder how to transform my thoughts into words.

I'm sorry to read about your grandmother. We celebrated my grandmother's 90th this past week but it was tinged with sadness because she was really unable to enjoy it.
Grandmothers are special people, especially for women.
