Book Blogger Holiday Swap. I had such a good time buying the gifts and putting together the box for my Santee. I hope I made good choices! As far as my own Secret Santa, they did a great job with their gifts to me. I was having a melancholy kind of day, and when I pulled into my driveway this afternoon, I saw a package on my front porch. I was delighted to see that it was from my Santa in Nebraska, whoever you are! I kept my four year-old at bay by plopping him down with the Grinch and settled in to open my box.
Santa, you did a great job with your choices! All three books that you sent are ones that I want to read. Actually, I already started Angel Time, but it's a library copy that I have to return soon. Now I have a copy that I can keep indefinitely! So happy. And you can't go wrong with another recent Anne Rice novel, Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt. That's another one on by TBR list.
I was emailing with a publisher rep today and they made a comment: "I'm not sure that anyone would want to win an ARC." Oh no, book bloggers love ARCs! And in this box was a lovely one from Sourcebooks, A Match for Mary Bennet. Yum, yum! Great choice!
To keep my place in these books, there was also enclosed two cute bookmarks that this animal lover will enjoy. And Santa kept their identity secret in their greeting card, too.
Speaking of animals...the cat who inspired the name of my blog took a liking to my box & gifts. I'm not sure if it was the scent of the Nebraska air or if my Santa has pets at home...but Callie decided that she must rub her scent all over the books, box...everything! She practically had a make-out session with it all. So I guess that makes two of us who enjoyed today's treats.
Santa, thank you so much for participating in the program this year. You've really made my day!
