Remember The Booktober Swap from last month?
Well, I was paired up with the lovely Melanie from La Explorer!
For some reason I only sent her one book. It didn't even occur to me to send her more than one. I tried to make mine pretty and send a little card along with it, but Melanie blew my swap gift out of the water.
I was delighted to find a package on my porch. It was so heavy that I honestly could not think for the life of me what I had ordered that would be that heavy. When I opened the box I found 3 books, 1 planner, 3 book marks, 2 pencils and this adorable card. What a great swap!
The books she included were:
My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story (With Recipes)
by Luisa Weiss
which according to Melanie, is written by a fellow blogger.
One Writer's Beginnings
by Eudora Welty
Daisy Miller and Washington Square
by Henry James
two must-read classics
The book marks were from Book Soup, The Last Bookstore and The Los Angeles Library.
She even included a POKETO planner without even knowing my love for planners.
I am beyond excited by this little package and can't wait to start reading (especially the recipe book).
