well, that "mother-thinks-something's-not-right" feeling kicked it. And I was correct.
The wonderful, wonderful, wonderful (did I tell you they were wonderful) women on the group rallied around and I received the following from several different people.
Books were flying in from Amazon to my delight!
The Tiffany Bookmarks were from someone who I had been in a swap with previously. And they remind me, in storage, I have the cross stitch panels for a couple of huge, cross stitched Tiffany windows (one of these days!). And the Reading Journal...well, what can I say? A journal and all about reading. It has some delightful prompts on different book related areas to refine my selections.
The Neil Gaiman, American Gods, is huge! And I need to be reading me some Gaiman books also. And The Raven Boys has been on my radar for ages. Actually, every time I walk by the shelf at the library which has The Raven King on it, I am reminded I need to start reading this series.
The Royal Nanny is one I will probably loan out to the co-worker/friend who I talked into this swap to begin with. She is into all things British and royalty. I'll let her take a gander at it while I go through the other two books.
So, while the swap didn't go exactly as I had hoped, there are angels out there with books who made this a delightful experience! Now onto the Halloween Swap!
