Bookish Mail


Today I received mail from Dana Cameron
She sent a signed copy of Pack of Strays and bookmarks. I absolutely loved Seven Kinds of Hell, the first book in the Fangborn series, so you can bet I'll be reading this pearl as soon as possible.

Thanks Dana!

Puzzled Books and Other Art

Earlier this week my owner and I got a belated birthday present.

It was late because it took some time to make it:


The friends who gave us this beautiful picture to hang in my owner's workroom had puzzled it together! What a work that must have been.


And look at the title of this book.
How awesome!

Thanks K&E.


And we got another present to hang on the wall of the workroom as well:


My owner's OtherHalf made this beautiful portrait and when my owner told him we loved it, he gave it to us!

Thanks E.

Now we have lots of cool and beautiful art to look at.

Fruit, Candy and a Book


Yesterday we got a present at work.
A pear, something to drink, candy, a puzzle and even a coupon for a grilled cheese sandwich. How cool!


When we got home there was a package waiting for us.
Melliane sent us a book and candy!


The Fruit Nougat looked very intriguing.


So I had to try it of course.
It was really yummy!

Thanks Melliane!

A Forest Walk - part 4

Today the last pictures of our trip to Boswachterij Gieten.
The lake you see in the pictures is an artificial lake. It's created because they're digging up sand to use for construction and such.
















Enjoying the last rays of the setting sun.


And then it was time to return home, but after our walk we were hungry so we stopped on our way home for:


Fish and chips!
Yum.

A Forest Walk - part 3


At the end of the afternoon I spotted a weird light!


Could it be Ancient Aliens?
I saw a lot about them on TV.


It turned out to be the setting sun though.
The trees broke up the light which gave the weird effect.
It made for some cool pictures though.

Awesome Mail Day

There will be two more posts with pictures we took on our forest walk, but I had to show you all the cool mail I got today!


First there was a book for Voodoo Bride.
I won it for her at the blog of Suzanne Johnson.

Thanks Suzanne!


Next there was mail from Danielle L. Jensen.
Stolen Songbird sounds like an awesome read, so I asked my owner to preorder it. And Danielle sent us a bookmark, a signed bookplate and a beautiful postcard with the book cover as a 'thank you' for preordering.


She even wrote a message for me at the back of the postcard.

Thanks Danielle!
I'll be putting that post card on my notice board.


And last, but certainly not least, two packages got delivered!


The first contained an uncorrected proof of Silver Mirrors by A.A. Aguirre.
I loved the first book in this series, so I'm very happy to have the chance to read Silver Mirrors early.

Thanks Ann!


The second package seems to have made the mailmen curious. They had torn it open a bit to see what was inside.


And how jealous they probably are!
It's an Advance Reader Copy of The Mark of the Tala by Jeffe Kennedy.
Jeffe also included a cover flat and cards of some of her other books.


There's something really cool about this book (apart from it being a really beautiful story of course).


Do you see it?

Thanks Jeffe.
You rock!
