More good swag
What could be nicer (other than knowing you'll soon be setting out to have lunch with someone special) than to open the door to the postman holding this intriguing pile of packages when it isn't even your birthday?
I just had to sit and admire them for a while before opening.
And here, in all their glory, the contents!
I know I said I wouldn't buy any more books until my TBR pile had diminished, I even tried giving them up for Lent, so here is my public, shaming confession - as Dorcas might say: "Books are my one weakness!"
The beautiful new books are my first from Persephone, I have resisted their enticing catalogue for a long time because I want to own them all. The lovely unopened package is Persephone's gift to me for buying three titles at once. I do know what is inside but I'm going to resist opening it until I am in need of cheering and, with all those other books to get through, I don't need a special treat just yet.
Just to balance the books (forgive the pun), I have followed the link to ReadItSwapIt, from 60goingon16, joined up and exchanged six books in as many days. The two books at the bottom of the pile are swaps I've just received. I feel very virtuous when trotting off to the post office with my swaps, knowing that I am recycling and helping to save the village post office at the same time. (I'm not all bad!) Now I'm off for that lunch.
