Mixed-Up Files of Jennifer Bertman. I have never been to Jennifer's blog before, so I am very happy to have been introduced to her through the swap because let me tell you, she knows me. Oh, sure. She has never met me before and it is highly unlikely she ever will. But she knows exactly what I like, particularly in relation to books, and that basically makes her soul mate material.
I came home from class last week to a happy USPS package on my doorway. I tore open the cardboard to discover this:
First things that stood out to me? ADORABLE chubby penguin card holiday card and scrumptious Ghirardelli peppermint bark. Though I didn't know her yet, Jennifer was already high on my A-List.
Then I opened that beautifully wrapped package of books (after a twinge of guilt that my Santee will not be receiving a very nicely-packed package. Oh, well. Hopefully the contents will be enough) to find:
Yay! I have heard so many good things about David Sedaris though I admit I've never read him. I do look forward to laughing and snorting through Holidays on Ice soon! And after reading so many positive reviews of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, I am so glad to have my very own copy to read! Humor and historical fiction?! Thanks, Jennifer!
