Mailbox Monday - Christmas Edition!

Hey all! I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. The day has come and gone, and Santa has left my bookshelves a few thousand pages heavier. Here is what arrived in my mailbox (err, stocking) this week:

Dante's Divine Comedy. A classic about a man's journey through hell, purgatory, and heaven - and the souls he meets along the way. I will be reading this one with my girlfriend, since we were both hoping to get it for Christmas.

Stephen King's Under the Dome. His newest work about an entire city that gets surrounded in a type of forcefield. I haven't read much about this one yet, but I like King, and I am a sucker for long books (over 1,000 pages).

Neil Gaiman's The Absolute Sandman, Vol. 1. A collection of 20 issues of Gaiman's graphic novel that features Morpheus, king of dreams. I've been waiting for the one for a while - I can't wait to read it!

Neil Gaiman's Stardust. A popular fairie tale about a boy who crosses into a forbidden land to find his heart's desire. Bought by myself with Christmas money. I loved the movie, and I know I will love the book.

Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. A man gets lost in the dark corners of London, and must find his way home. Another one that I haven't read much about. But I know Neil won't let me down!


  1. Hey! Awesome books. I was going to email you but you didn't leave your address and I can't find it on your page anywhere. Here's mine:
    You can comment again and leave it or just email me! Happy monday!

  2. The Divine Comedy!! I've read Inferno... it put me to sleep. not the story itself, but the poetry. I read it in prose. the rhythm was just... so... soothing... i was snoring by Canto 4. but good luck ;)
