Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. This month it is hosted by Cindy of Cindy's love of Books.

The Minefields by Steven EisnerFrom an early age, Sam Spiegel single-mindedly pursued an entrepreneurial path that prepared him to transform a small-time ad agency into a regional powerhouse with national ambitions. A couple decades later, Sam had achieved almost everything he ever dreamed possible as the ad agency's rainmaker, fountainhead, and unflappable pursuer of success. One final goal remained: To consolidate his gains by attracting an international advertising conglomerate and cash out. That's when the nation is hit with the most unthinkable tragedy, and Sam begins to take stock of his own life, finding that he is growing weary of the relentless hunt. Unsatisfied in his marriage and embroiled in a mind-boggling professional crisis, everything Sam had achieved is put at risk.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey

I finished reading:

The Book of Lost Fragrances by M. J. Rose
Voices of the Dead by Peter Leonard


Do you belong to any book clubs — face-to-face, or online? If so, how long have you been with the group(s)? If not, why?
No, I do not belong to any book clubs. Mainly because I prefer to read at my own pace and interest.

Hi Gautami,

This book is obviously on tour right now, as several others have already mentioned it.

There are a couple who have already managed to get reviews posted and everyone seems in agreement that they enjoyed it, both for the storyline around the advertising agency and the inter-family disputes and personality clashes.

I hope that you enjoy reading this one also and look forward to your review.

Thanks for sharing and have a good week.

Yvonne
