While Husband and I are in the north, shopping for our new home, I’ll be a little out of pocket around here. I thought I’d try to entertain you with some pretty pictures while the book reviews are not flowing so quickly as usual.
How about this lovely place, hm?
This is all I have for you this week, folks – beautiful pictures – so if you want the books, please c’mon back next Monday.

…Husband and I will be moving soon, from almost-the-Mexican-border to almost-the-Canadian-border. It will be a big move. I will be busy; and I will be busy reading, too. You may have noticed that I’m reviewing for ForeWord now as well as Shelf Awareness – although only one ForeWord review has posted so far, more are in the pipeline. Busy busy, I tell you. Have moving boxes? Please send my way.
I intend to keep my 5-day-a-week schedule here. I do. But just… bear with me if things get a little nuts.
Off we go.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
John Vaillant, nonfiction author, makes his fiction debut with a shockingly beautiful and painful novel called The Jaguar’s Children.
At the border town of Altar in the Mexican state of Sonora, a taking-off point for many immigrants who buy the services of coyotes to cross into Arizona…
There are stalls there with things to buy, but there is nothing for the house or the milpa, nothing nice to eat or to wear. Besides expensive water, it is mostly clothes and almost all of them are black or gray – T-shirts, jackets, balaclavas and gloves, even the bags – so you can be invisible in the desert, in the dark, because that is what a migrante needs to be to make it in el Norte.
Stay tuned for a Maximum Shelf to come. I am excited to share this one.
