Has anyone sent me a book?

This morning, a book arrived for me in the post: The Gallery of Regrettable Food. No covering note, sent from a commercial address with no invoice. Just a book in an envelope. Anyone want to own up?

Re: Has anyone sent me a book?

FWIW, the above book is a real book. Available on Amazon, even ....

No, Aerbabe, I don't know who might have sent it to you. It looks like a funny book -- is it? The Amazon review mentions some rather disgusting entries: Meat pie with meat crust?? Scrambled eggs topped with cream of mushroom soup?? Chicken broth topped with a slice of lemon, as a drink??!!

And doesn't this look appetising?

No? What about this?


On a more serious note, with regards to who might have sent it -- one reviewer says this book is
... a great gift for anyone who loves collecting cookbooks or who enjoys a humorous look back at the good old days.
Maybe someone sent it with that in mind?

I was going to send you a book, but someone told me you'd already got one.
