In My Mailbox (December 12, 2010)

In My Mailbox credit goes to The Story Siren


(This isn't how it all came packed, this was after we unwrapped it all.)


 What a fun week I had! The Broke and the Bookish hosted a really fun secret santa this year, and I signed up back last month. Earlier than I was expecting (yay!) my gift arrived in the mail. My daughter and I had lots of fun opening it. (We have pictures of us opening it - but didn't post due to all of the other pictures I have on this post.) I had no idea what to expect, so we eagerly opened the box and we found...

-some delicious chocolates (this had to be my daughters favourite part of the gift)
-festive candy canes
-really cute pencil
-3 knit cloths - very cute!!
-red reusable bag (perfect for when I go book shopping!)
AND
-Signed copy of Echoes From The Other Land [Stories] by Ava Homa
-The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

HOLY CRAP, right? I'm so lucky! So thank you to The Broke and the Bookish for organizing this great event, and thank you so much Jen from a writer's blog.

Great mailbox! I love the cover for Wondrous Strange. Doing a late IMM response this week. I'm just coming back from vacation - funny that I'm on the internet less when I have all this extra time.
