Whew! This has been a busy week on the blog. Reviews, events, blog tours, giveaways…and it’s not over yet, as my own Elizabeth Goudge Day event is coming up tomorrow. (Are you ready?) But I have to quickly acknowledge some fantastic book mail I received this week too.
This was my second time participating in the Books ‘n’ Bloggers Swap, sponsored by Chaotic Goddess Swaps. I enjoyed picking out books for my partner, Heather of Based on a True Story, and she sent me a gorgeous package! Here it is:
According to the Swap rules, we’re supposed to send three kinds of books:
- A book from my wishlist: A Fugue in Time by Rumer Godden. I’ve been meaning to read this for a long time, and it’s not so easy to find over here. I love these new covers on the UK paperback editions of Godden’s books.
- A book my partner has read and loved: The Butterfly Mosque by G. Willow Wilson. I’ve been interested in Wilson since I heard her interviewed by Nancy Pearl, and I’m so glad to know that Heather loved this memoir.
- A book my partner hasn’t read, but that looks interesting: Notes on a Cowardly Lion by John Lahr (a biography of his father, actor Bert Lahr). I checked this out from the library but I had to return it before I got around to reading it, so I’m happy to have a copy of my very own.
I’m so excited for all of these! Heather also put in a copy of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend, which looks like a fun read as well, and a delicious bar of blackcurrant chocolate — how did she know I love blackcurrants?
Thank you so much, Heather, and thanks to CG Swaps for another great exchange of books and friendship.
