Mailbox Birthday Monday

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.

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.


  1. What a wonderful friend you have to take the time to remember the things you like. The Bibliophile sounds like a book we would all like to own.

  2. Happy birthday and I hope you enjoy your new books.

  3. They all do look enjoyable.

    I love the cover on Bibliophile.

    Have a great week, and I hope you had a good birthday.

  4. Happy belated birthday. Sounds like you have a really nice friend! I like the looks of both those gifted books. The Bibliophile looks particularly interesting. And nice of hubby to get you a book too.
    Happy Reading!
