Monday Memes


December has and is being hosted by Lady Q from Let Them Read Books
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
Before sharing my mailbox with you, I want to give a big shout out to Lady Q for hosting this month.  And I think everyone will agree as to the wonderful job she did.  Except for posting all those images of desserts, whereas I put on weight just looking at them  lol.  So Lady Q...Thank you!!

"Meet Me On Monday!"
Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

1. What are your New Year's Eve plans?
Hmmmm...not sure yet??

2. How tall are you?

3. What is your favorite pudding flavor?

4. What room of the house do you blog the most in?
The Office
All my blogging is done in the room we converted
into my office, but haven't taken pictures of yet!!

5. What is your best physical feature?
brown eye eyes eyelid eyelashes stare
People tell me it's my eyes...big and brown.

Thanks for the support CMash! I've been eying Miss Hildreth with envy in all these mailboxes! I've read the first two books in that Nora Roberts trilogy and I've got the third on my shelf waiting for me! You'll never be disappointed with a Nora Roberts book. Thanks for linking up to Mailbox Monday! Happy reading!

Hmmmmm.....I guess I'm a little shorter than you (I bet you don't hear that very often, do you?? LOL), but I have to disagree about the pudding--butterscotch is the best!

I received for review The Elephant Keeper by Christopher Nicholson from Tribute Books Reviews & Giveaways.

"I asked the sailor what an Elephant looked like; he replied that it was like nothing on earth."

England, 1766: After a long voyage from the East Indies, a ship docks in Bristol, England, and rumor quickly spreads about its unusual cargo—some say a mermaid is on board. A crowd forms, hoping to catch a glimpse of the magical creature. One crate after another is unpacked: a zebra, a leopard, and a baboon. There's no mermaid, but in the final two crates is something almost as magical—a pair of young elephants, in poor health but alive.

Seeing a unique opportunity, a wealthy sugar merchant purchases the elephants for his country estate and turns their care over to a young stable boy, Tom Page. Tom's family has long cared for horses, but an elephant is something different altogether. It takes time for Tom and the elephants to understand one another, but to the surprise of everyone on the estate, a remarkable bond is formed.

The Elephant Keeper, the story of Tom and the elephants, in Tom's own words, moves from the green fields and woods of the English countryside to the dark streets and alleys of late-eighteenth-century London, reflecting both the beauty and the violence of the age. Nicholson's lush writing and deft storytelling complement a captivating tale of love and loyalty between one man and the two elephants that change the lives of all who meet them.

Miss Hildreth is one I think I want to read. I'll watch for your review on it. I usually stay tucked in with lots of goodies for New Year's Eve. That is my favorite way to spend the evening, family and food!
