Mailbox Monday can be found at: The Printed Page
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
I ended up with only one new book this week. That was Here There Be Monsters: The Legendary Kraken and the Giant Squid by H. P. Newquist with I got through the Amazon Vine program.
It’s actually kind of nice that I only got one book! It gives me a chance to catch up on all the other books I need to read!
Here There Be Monsters: The Legendary Kraken and the Giant Squid by H. P. Newquist
First Sentence: “The legends of a nightmarish creatures living deep in the ocean were created hundreds of years ago, during a time when ships sailed in search of new lands, not always knowing what they would find or where they would end up.
From Amazon.com: “HP Newquist’s fast-paced account reveals how long-ago myths about the kraken transformed into the modern study of Architeuthis dux, the giant squid.Weaving scientific discovery with historical accounts—along with the giant squid’s appearance in film and literature—Here There Be Monsters explores the mystery of this creature in fascinating detail. Readers will find that the monster remains hidden no longer, because scientists have finally seen the kraken with their own eyes . . . alive and rising up out of the sea.”
