Mailbox Monday: Essays Everywhere!

I picked up three books of essays last week. What books came into your house?



The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup: My Encounters with Extraordinary People by Susan Orlean. I saw the movie adaptation of The Orchid Thief, but have never read her books. Now I will.



Havanas in Camelot: Personal Essays by William Styron. Sophie's Choice is a gobsmacker of a book. I've never read his nonfiction.



A Hymnal: The Controversial Arts by William F. Buckley. I've been reading, and enjoying, Buckley's fiction and nonfiction since I was in high school. It's rare I find one of his books I don't already own, so I was excited to find this one.



Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.

I don't know any of your books. I hope you enjoy them all.

Have a wonderful week.

Although I find essay works interesting I rarely read them. Glad you found a Buckley book to add to your collection.
Thanks for sharing at MM.
Happy Reading!
