mailbox monday

Two books came to me this week, both from Book Mooch (maybe I should make Mailbox Mondays a biweekly event, that might be more exciting). I found a new copy of Kon-Tiki to replace my old stinky one (the one I read was actually a borrow paperback copy), and got another book Heyerdahl wrote about his experiences living on the Polynesian Islands before he made his famous raft trip, Fatu-Hiva: Back to Nature. I'm really eager to read this one!

Visit The Printed Page to see what came in everyone else's mailbox!

* Update at 5:30 pm: I just got one more, by the same author! The Ra Expeditions, in which Heyerdahl attempted to sail from Egypt to Easter Island on a raft made out of reeds. More adventures on the seas.

Ah, you managed to get a copy of The Ra Expeditions! Excellent. I know I really enjoyed all of the books I read by him. For some reason he was recommended reading for teens back in my day (1960s)... along with Gerald Durrell.

I've never heard of this author or these books. Hope you enjoy them!
