Thank you to Melina for my books! (I got them right away and then never got around to posting, sorry!)
Thank you Jen!!!!! (CBR Book Exchange – Woooooo!)
Y’all. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS GIFT. A book I never heard of? EXCITEMENT. And an Edgar Award Winner? YES. I am a sucker for an award winner. SASSY SOCKS?!? YES. Jen wrote an awesome card (A HANDWRITTEN CARD?!) and noted that the socks were “a bit of a gamble” but I giggled immediately so the gamble paid off. My first pair of socks boasting a swear word. Here. For. It. THANK YOU THANK YOU LET’S BE BEST FRIENDS. Too much? Too bad, I’m […]
esmemoria nailed it! All stuff I have wanted to read or didn’t know I wanted! Not sure what the slug thing is but it fits right in, and I do enjoy little toys like that.

I’m looking forward to reading this next year 🙂 Giving and receiving books is the best way to celebrate the holidays! Merry Book Exchange!
