Monday Memes

This month Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Savy Verse and Wit.  She asks what books arrived in either snail mail or email.  This week I got only three:  Catherine: Inside the Heart and Mind of a Great Monarch (The Volga Flows Forever) and The Volga Germans (The Volga Flows Forever) are ebooks about the Volga Germans.  My grandmother was a Volga German so I was thrilled to be asked to review these.



















  This will tour the week of November 13.


It's Monday What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.  She asks what we read last week, what we reviewed last week and what we plan to read this week.

It has been a slow reading week for me; too much real life going on.  I read
    and I'll review it this week.

  5. I remember doing a report on Catherine the Great in college and finding her fascinating. I saw that a new book was coming out on her and am going to have to look into it.

    Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.
