Thanks go to... the fabulous Nadia at A Bookish Way of Life!! She also just happened to throw in Sense and Sensibility and Monsters. I've never read one of these sorts of books before, so I'm definitely excited for it! And... the big reveal was the Persephone book -- The Making of a Marchioness, by Frances Hodgson Burnett! Persephone Book # 29 was published in 1901 and is 328 pages of the most beautiful paper and ink printed upon it that I've ever had the good luck to lay my eyes upon and my hands to touch! I am quite a lucky gal and I cannot wait to dive into this book. According to Nadia, she wrote in her card that she felt it was a cheerful, happy story -- perfect for the holidays!
Oh, did I forget to mention that she also included that little red box full of delectable chocolate from Lindt? Have I failed to share with you that I dream of chocolate, will devour it within an instant upon having it within my grasp? Suffice it to say that I did exercise some self-control this evening and only had one chocolate. Hmm. Well, maybe I had two? Let's just say that the chocolates have found a fabulous new home!
Many, many thanks to Nadia at A Bookish Way of Life! How thoughtful and kind for you to throw in those extra goodies and I wish you and yours a fabulous holiday season!
