Mailbox Monday

Thanks to Reading Local, I had a little book money in my jeans this weekend, so stopped by Broadway Books in time to pick up a little something for Mailbox Monday.

I got the two Nick Hornby books I want to read for the Bibliophilic Books Challenge.  I got a big kick out of The Polysyllabic Spree (reviewed here) and am really looking forward to reading the other two.

Shakespeare Wrote for Money by Nick Hornby

I also found a used copy of It All Adds Up, a collection of non-fiction pieces by Saul Bellow.


  1. I really liked "High Fidelity" by Nick Hornby. How do his other books stack up against that one?

  2. Nice books, hope you enjoy them! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  3. You can have a Nick Hornby marathon now! Enjoy!

  4. I like the look of the Saul Bellow. ANd I love your graphic for Mailbox Mondays- very pretty!

  5. SocrMom -- I loved High Fidelity (as discussed here. Polysyllabic Spree (reviewed here) and the two listed in this post are non-fiction. All are reprints of his magazine column about buying and reading books. Very funny.

    Alayne -- thanks for the link. I'll head right over.

    Bermuda -- I will! I want to dive right in, but there are a few higher up my TBR stack that I have to get to first.

    Marie -- Thanks! I need to play with my new MM picture, because I can't figure out how to make the dots inside the letters not be white. I'm learning as I go here . . .
