Holiday Swap fun!

I adore this time of year, but one of my favorite new traditions is the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. Last year, I didn't know my giver or receiver. This year, I didn't know the person I shopped for, so I was thrilled to get a package in the mail from Beth at Bookworm Meets Bookworm, a book blogger I communicate with frequently through Twitter and our blogs!
Here's what I found inside my gorgeously wrapped package:

  • homemade cocoa mix
  • a sweet and beautiful handmade card
  • a GORGEOUS, homemade bookmark in my favorite color of blue
  • The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, which is on two of my TBR lists: Orange Prize shortlist and New Yorker 20 Under 40 (plus it's one of Beth's all-time favorite books!)
I can't wait to dig into The History of Love, and I hope it will be one of my first 2011 reads. Thanks, Beth!


  1. What a nice package! I hope that you enjoy A History of Love as I have heard very good things about it!!

  2. What a haul! I can't wait to hear what you think of The History of Love. It's one of my favorites!

  3. Lovely gifts! You have everything you need for a nice afternoon: hot cocoa, a good book, and a lovely bookmark with which to mark your page when you need a cocoa refill! I loved History of Love and hope you do too :-)

  4. So glad you like it! I thought cocoa would be nice since I figured cookies might go stale?! Ha. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the novel. Stay warm! Happy Holidays! :)

  5. What a great package of goodies! I loved History of Love and hope you do too!

  6. Fun! I just did one swap this year, a holiday card swap, but that was a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the book!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Happy reading!
