This year I participated in a Book Blogger Holiday Swap! The person who had me is totally on top of things and I arrived home after my Thanksgiving travels to find a neat little Amazon package with two books that I've been really wanting to read!
Holidays On Ice by David Sedaris and Little Brother by Cory Doctorow. I think both of these books have great covers and I 'm so excited to dive in. I wanted to share a link to her blog, but, like an idiot, I threw out the paper with her name on it! I'm sorry, but thank you, thank you, thank you. (EDIT: It's Jeanne at Necromancy Never Pays.) Nothing makes me happier than coming home to an Amazon box on my doorstep (or more often thrown over onto my "patio").
You can check out my santee at at her blog. It was really fun looking at her blog and checking out the books on her wishlist. I won't tell you what I sent, because that could ruin the surprise (and let's be honest, that's the best part), but I now have quite a few more books to add to my list. Checking out new authors and books is probably one of my favorite things. I don't think I'll ever get even with the piles of owned books and library books, never mind the totally want but don't yet physically have piles that exist only in my brain.
