Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

Several books, all with great covers, came into my house last week:

The first three are the Charlie Mortdecai novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli, a 1970s trilogy recently reprinted. I couldn't resist the description, "Like the result of an unholy collaboration between P. G. Wodehouse and Ian Fleming."

Don't Point That Thing At Me, After You with the Pistol, and Something Nasty in the Woodshed

More Baths Less Talking: Notes from the Reading Life of a Celebrated Author Locked in Battle with Football, Family, and Time Itself by Nick Hornby. This one is also part of a series -- his latest collection of "Stuff I've Been Reading" columns from The Believer.  (Read my review of one of the earlier collections, The Polysyllabic Spree, here.)


  1. Your books this week have some creative titles! Enjoy!

  2. I like the covers as well.

  3. Something Nasty in the Woodshed looked appealing, but I checked Amazon and it doesn't seem to be getting very good reviews. Hope you find it enjoyable nevertheless. :)
