Blogger Book Swap

Well, our blogger book swap is over.  It was so fun, a great way to get to know other bloggers, and an inspiration to get away from the tv and read more.  My book swap buddy Audrey was really sweet and I definitely hope we keep in touch.  Here is what she sent me!

Book 1 - Can't wait to read this!

Book 2 - She knew I was wanting to re-read this and I love that she picked a non-movie cover.

The whole package.

A serving plate for our chocolates.

Coffee mug filled with tasty chocolates.

A big ole' box of DELICIOUS chocolates.  Having a Belgian book buddy, rocked!

Thanks Audrey!!


  1. I picked up a copy of Cloud Atlas before the movie premiered but never read it. One of my good friends highly recommended it and I heard it was a complicated plot to get through but I'm excited to read it. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books and I too have been wanting to re-read it. I enjoyed the movie a lot and need to see the Robert Redford version. She got you so many great treats, even a plate to showcase them (love it!). Thank you so much for signing up for the swap and I hope you had a great experience.

    1. I'm excited for Cloud Atlas too. It's hard to get into in the beginning because of the time period it starts in, but I feel like it's worth it!

  2. Nothing goes better with books than chocolate! Just make sure to lick the chocolate off your fingers unless you want chocolate smudges on your pretty new books!

  3. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books! My book club read it last month in anticipation of the movie that's out now. I flew through it. I love Jay Gatsby! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!

  4. Yay, i'm so so glad you liked everything!!!!!!!! And we are definitely staying in touch! :)

    Have fun with your goodies and thanks so much for participating!

    1. Thanks for everything Martie! It was a blast!
