Thanks to my two Secret Santa bloggers, I'm starting the New Year with books from my wish list and some new cyber friends!
Reflections From The Hinterland who participated in the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. It turns out that Patty lives near my hometown of Spokane.
Her package to me included Lemon Tea Bread made from an old family recipe. Lemons are a favorite of mine and her bread has been enjoyed throughout the season. My books from Patty included There Goes The Bride by M.C. Beaton, The Cruelest Month by Louise Penny and Homicide in Hardcover by Kate Carlisle.
Must Read Faster. It turns out that we are each others Book Lover's Secret Santa. My Amazon package from Melissa was beautifully wrapped and included a deluxe paperback edition of The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny.
I also participated in Book Bloggers Holiday Card Exchange. Cass at Bonjour, Cass! sent me greetings from a cold Boston a few weeks ago (which I'm sure is even colder now). She recommends I read The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore. It's sitting right now on my long TBR shelf.
My other card came from Ryan at Wordsmithonia. His book recommendation is Deck The Halls by Mary and Carol Higgins Clark. I found a copy last week at Borders for $3.99 and purchased right away. Ryan also suggests I read author Timothy James Beck which I plan to do in the new year.
Have you read any of the titles I received? If you have a favorite let me know.
