Mailbox Monday and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? March 16 Edition

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia who now blogs at To Be Continued. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.

So many great books being released this spring! How do we keep up? By staying organized and reading what we want. But it's fun to explore new titles too. That's what I'm doing this spring. :-)

Two books in my mailbox this past week:

This one is on tour with iRead Book Tours from April 13 to May 8. It's such a gorgeous book!

Bridges of Paris by Michael Saint James

Bridges of Paris is a large-format coffee-table book, with over 350 original color photographs, which casts new illumination on the City of Light. The 37 bridges over the Seine River emerge as beautiful, historic destinations rather than unnoticed thoroughfares. The book features stunning portraits of each bridge as well as intimate riverside moments. Once you’ve experienced this river tour, you will never see Paris the same way again.

Living as a Parisian for a year, author Michael Saint James left his American lifestyle and spent his days and nights capturing images from over, on, beside and under the bridges of Paris. With over 30 years experience as a photographer, educator and world traveler, Michael immersed himself in French culture to search out his authentic artist self. The result is a visual treasure to share with everyone.

I bought this one after having a great online discussion with the author who is currently working with MOAS, saving lives of migrants who find themselves in distress while crossing the Mediterranean Sea in unsafe vessels. Robert is a journalist, documentary filmmaker, and best-selling author.  His reputation is built on his interest and ability to enter forbidden, deadly and violent places and emerge with a stunning story. I'd love to read his autobiography next!

Raven by Robert Young Pelton

In Robert Young Pelton's first work of fiction a young boy survives a disastrous canoe trip and learns how to survive in the wilderness of coastal British Columbia. The gripping adventure is based on events and characters in Pelton's youth and is as gripping as any classic survival tale written by a master of survival should be.

This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we keep track of what we are currently reading and plan to read.  The kidlit version is hosted by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts.
