Sometimes,I think fate conspires to let you have a book that you had secretly been coveting for a long time,but never managed to buy. Veens had put down the third book in the Girl with the dragon tattoo series on her wishlist. I ordered the book from Flipkart to gift it to her and after 15 days of mail-diahorrea, the book had still not made it to my house. Now ,Flipkart is normally very efficient,but this one time,I couldn’t get the book on time.So,i bought her something else and tell Veens about the debacle. Guess what happens next?.A parcel arrives bearing PArt 1 and Part 2 of the series.So,now i have the trilogy!!.Isn’t that incedibly sweet of her? Thanks ,Veens!!
Other goodies that came in last week : A parcel from my Secret Santa from the Book Bloggers Swap arrived bearing an ARC of Fireworks over Tococca.Thanks, Gautami. I also received a book Truly,Madly ,Deeply from Faraaz Kazi to review-Review coming soon..
I have been following some craft blogs for a long time now and making handmade cards with some basic raw materials that i have lying around my place . I’ve been moaning generally about needing some craft stuff and happened to mention it to the hubby.Obviously,I forgot about it and thought he would do the same too. A few days later, hubby comes home dressed as a Santa with the goodies I wanted ..A live Santa Claus in my house ,ho ho-ing with gusto.:-) In all the years I have known him, this has to be the sweetest surprise he’s given me. Thanks,G.
2010 has been a great year for my reading habit- I’ve managed to finish 71 books this year( God alone knows how i managed !). I hope I keep the habit alive and kicking in 2011 too. YA and classics will be conquered next year.This is the last post for the year-Wishing you all a fabulous New year filled with surprises,joy and fun. Catch you next year,folks.
