Mailbox Monday

While doing some Christmas shopping, I picked out a little something for myself, which arrived in time for Mailbox Monday.

Everyday Drinking by Kinglsey Amis

I have wanted this book for a long time because Amis is a favorite of mine, I am intrigued by the idea of literary lushes, and my limited capacity for alcohol requires me to satisfy my enjoyment of it vicariously. I am so looking forward to reading this over one of the upcoming long holiday weekends.


  1. Oh too funny. Another book for my wish list. I love the idea of martinis ans whiskey on the rocks with a twist while slogging away over a manuscript or while having an intellectual argument with another writer at a cocktail party too. Of course about half way through that hard liquor I'd be sick as a dog.

  2. Merry Christmas to you! I did the same thing - I bought 2 books for my self while I was out shopping. I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Nice :-) Can't do much better than Kingsley Amis.

  4. Autodidact -- Thanks for visiting and your funny comment!

    Bermuda -- Buying a few books for myself during Christmas shopping is one of my favorite holiday traditions! :) Glad you share it!

    Marie -- I didn't know Amis was one of your favorites too. Cool.
