A free book on a Monday morning

Monday morning, the sun is shining, and I open my Google reader. Mark Thwaite from the Book Depository has announced the winners of his Friday giveaway and I won Gods Behaving Badly. I must admit I don't know anything about the author or the book, but the comments (It is a bit 50's romantic comedy but obviously written by a scholar and is a rewarding read. It helps (but not necessary)to have an knowledge or interest in Greek mythology to enjoy this very modern tale for open minded readers who are looking for something new and fun) and the mention of Jasper Fforde's First Among Sequels in the suggestions made me pick it. And I love picking up a book at random and discovering it, like I did with Fforde's Thursday Next series.

Good start to the week...
