In the Mail

My UK mule’s schedule is a bit out of alignment with my desires, so a quick online purchase, and, these two books are in transit .. counting the days. I found them at Amazon.com. 

How you can you not want to read a book with this title (and pedigree) ?   9781408701034  “Traditionally Built” a polite euphemism describing the; Rubenesque, sonsie or zaftig amongst us.

The first book in this series; Corduroy Mansions. (web images)51oy-JO0TxL._SS500_cm1_1468323c cm2_1468331ccm3_1468332c   Book two is available as an audio cast by the: London Telegraph, The Dog who came in from the Cold Read by the inimitable Andrew Sachs, best-known for his performance as Manuel in Fawlty Towers. ASman ASnow  The Telegraph is an excellent on-line newspaper, and I enjoy these ventures into mixed / multi media offerings.
