Monday Mailbox

Christmas is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year in terms of books and book mail, especially if you abide by a "one for you, one for me" way of present shopping like I do. LOL! This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Does It Fart? by Nick Caruso and Dani Rabaiotti came from me for myself.

Who wouldn't want a field guide to animal flatulence? I do love these little books of fascinating (and often off-color) information.

Believe It or Snot by Nick Caruso and Dani Rabaiotti came from me for myself.

See above reason but replace animal flatulence with slimy animals.

A Very Coco Christmas by Robert Bryndza came from me for myself.

A light, Christmas rom-com about a well to do college girl and her working class boyfriend, don't mind if I do!

Christmas at High Rising by Angela Thirkell came from me for myself.

I really like Angela Thirkell a lot so when I found out that this collection of short stories had been collected and released a few years ago, I couldn't resist.

The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins came from a friend in a Jolabokaflod Swap.

What bookworm could possibly resist a magical book about a librarian to whom books whisper and the newcomer who might just save this small community?

The Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith came from a friend in a Jolabokaflod Swap.

I'm really looking forward to this highly recommended satirical biography about English suburban life.

The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey came from a friend in a Jolabokaflod Swap.

What happens when a Bright Young Thing falls in love with someone entirely unsuitable but goes on to choose a safe life? This novel is that story and I can't wait!

This Is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay came from a friend in a Jolabokaflod Swap.

I never once had any interest in a medical career (blood makes me woozy) but I sure do love to read medical memoirs and this one looks top of the trees.

Star Gazing by Linda Gillard came from me for myself.

A widow whose great solace is in music falls for a man who makes no concession for her blindness but she doesn't know if she can trust him. This sounds so incredibly intriguing, doesn't it?

St. Francis Society for Wayward Pets by Annie England Noblin came from TLC Book Tours and William Morrow for a blog tour.

Put a cute dog on the cover and I can't resist but the plot--a woman inherits a house, car, and cat from her birth mother and goes off to claim them and find out the truth about her past--is enticing too.

Writers and Lovers by Lily King came from Ingram and Grove Atlantic in a contest win.

Lily King is a magnificent author so I am very excited about her latest novel about a woman, leaving her youth behind, still striving to live a creative life.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
