I got a few fun books for my birthday this weekend. What new books came into your house last week?
The Drunken Botanist: The Plants that Create the World's Great Drinks by Amy Stewart. My friend saw a comment I left on Instagram about wanting this book and remembered it for my birthday -- how nice was that!
Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany by Jane Mount. The same friend got me this one, just because she knew I would love it, which I do. Pretty illustrations and book lists -- there's a combination I can't resist.
The Counterlife by Philip Roth. Hubby went back to the well, as he says, and got me another fancy Franklin Library edition of a Philip Roth book. He knows I like them, so when he gets stuck for gift ideas, he heads to eBay.
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.
