Monday Mailbox #25 - Manic Monday Edition

Oh boy. The week preceding the last Monday Mailbox was so crazy that I forgot about a book I'd received. WHO AM I??

Dancing With Mrs. Dalloway:
Stories of the Inspiration Behind
Great Works of Literature
by Celia Blue Johnson

My apologies for the Amazon clip art attached to this image. Apparently there's not a better version of the image on the web at the moment that I'm writing this. Anyway, I'm excited about this book and I'm somewhat disappointed that I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Like I said, life's been crazy. But once I do read it, it's going to go right next to Once Again, to Zelda: The Stories Behind Literature's Most Intriguing Dedications, by Marlene Wagman Geller.

And, for record-keeping's sake, here's one I got this week:

Every Dead Thing, by John Connolly

This is Connolly's first novel (with it, he won the Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel in 1999). I'm so excited that someone found a copy of this in their laundry room and brought it in, or I might never get started on the Charlie Parker series. But now that I have it's beginning - muah hahaha. Let's just say I've got a challenge planned for myself next year. *Glances at TBR shelves* *sigh*

There will (probably) be no Monday Mailbox for me next week as I'll be on vacation in Florida. Should I pick up any books while in Orlando, I'll share them in Monday October 17th's mailbox. :)
