Book Blogger Holiday Swap

This year, I participated in the Book Blogger Holiday Gift Swap, which is basically Secret Santa for book bloggers. My gift arrived yesterday – a nice post-Christmas treat!! Thanks so much to Lexie from Poisoned Rationality for this lovely collection:

Ha Jin's short story collection The Bridegroom

Kate Emerson's Secrets of the Tudor Court: Between Two Queens

And a very cute snowman snow globe, which my daughters promptly took off with.

Here is a photo:


Thank you, Lexie! Great picks!

    Nice gifts! I read A Free Life by Ha Jin and loved it so I’ll be curious to see what you think of The Bridegroom.

    Wow. Great gifts and what a nice post-holiday surprise! I love Ha Jin’s writing. I hope you enjoy his short stories.
