IMM (2)

I don't know why, but, after my first In My Mailbox, I just never did one again. It really doesn't make sense, as I love sharing the fun books I get and reading what other people get.

This week, though, I am back in the states. I've been getting pretty much all of my contest wins shipped to the states, along with a few books I'd ordered and a couple books for review. I couldn't pass up the IMM opportunity!

It's like Christmas came early for me this week!!!!

Aren’t humans amazing Animals? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions of more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

I'm reading Hush Hush at the moment and I love it. I'm intrigued by the title of Angels Garden so I'll be looking out for your review.
