Mailbox Monday (82)

Another surprising week of books, with yes, more goodreads wins. What can I say, I'm lucky. As always, linking up with Mailbox Monday.
Mailbox Monday
From Paperback Swap
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
I've yet to read anything by either one of these authors, yet I've heard such good things about Neil Gaiman. In fact I loved both Stardust and Coraline, movies based on his books. I even believe my mom read this once and really enjoyed it. So needless to say I'm really excited that this is our book club book next month!

From Goodreads
Birdmen by Lawrence Goldstone
Taken from the subtitle this is about "The Wright Brothers, Glenn Curtiss, and the Battle to Control the Skies." While I obviously know of the Wright Brothers, I haven't heard of Glenn Curtiss before. And what I do know about the Wright Brothers is pretty limited, so I'm hoping to learn a lot with this.

Steve Jobs' Life By Design by George Beahm
This is about the commencement address Steve Jobs gave at Stanford in 1995. While I'm sure the address is in here, it looks to go deeper than that and explores some of the history and life events that contributed towards writing it. Definitely sounds like one that will be inspirational.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And have you seen any movies based on Neil Gaiman's work?


  1. The Steve Jobs book sounds like one I'd find interesting. I hope Birdmen is a good read for you!

  2. I just downloaded Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman on my Audible app. I need to read more of his books.

  3. You have got some interesting books! Eclectic taste!! Have a wonderful reading week!

    Here is my MAILBOX post.


    Here is my What Are You Reading? post.

  4. I haven't read anything by Gaiman or seen any movies based on his material either! This week I bought the book "Up at Butternut Lake" as a couple of bloggers reviewed it and liked it, so when I saw the eBook was $1.99 I couldn't resist!

  5. Those are all new to me but they all look terrific!

  6. Three interesting titles. Love the cover of Birdman.

    Have a wonderful reading week.
