Mailbox Monday is a meme sponsored for the month of March by Diary of an Eccentric.
I had three wonderful books come into the house this week. Two were purchases and one was a win.
The third was the book win. A real chunkster on Julia Child from spicelines. A delightful blog not just on cooking but so much information on everything related to food.
Reviews on my blog have been particularly slow whilst I try to balance home in Colombo and home in Rozella (where there is no internet). Book reading goes on apace though.
Right now reading Middlesex. Once I finish this one I get on to a couple of books by Sri Lankan authors - Ru Freeman's A Disobedient Girl and the hilarious, tongue in the cheek humour of a Sri Lankan author J B Muller who writes specifically about the Burgher community in Sri Lanka. The Burghers are of mixed race - either Dutch, Portuguese or British who have married into the local communities and whose numbers are declining in this country today. They have contributed immensely not just to the civil service, but also to the development of the English language and have added greatly to our culinary traditions.
Looking forward to visiting other blogger's mailboxes.
