Fall Reading Book Swap III

I received it, a package from Kari! :) I was so excited when I picked it from the post office and later when I opened it. I loved the cookie cutters which were included in the package and of course, I immediatelly backed the cookies. I couldn't help myself. ;)
I also liked the bookmark very much, with my initial on it. I have to admit that I keep looking at it all the time as it feels so personal.
Finally, the book. As I had just been reading The food of love by Anthony Capella, which is, btw. a great book with a happy ending (about the Italian food and love), I started to read yesterday in the afternoon The virgin blue by Tracy Chevalier sent to me by Kari. Do you think that I could put it down for a moment? NO. The story just sucks you in and you feel like you are there, right in the middle of it all. Perhaps I feel like this even more as I had been several times in France. :)

Recently I read The labyrinth by Kate Mosse which has a very similar story. I read it in English and soon after this it was translated into Slovenian. It is impossible to get it in a library right now unless you make a reservation. Like The Perfume, the book I wrote about in my previous post. I can't wait to sit in my chair today again and continue reading. Thank you Kari for a wonderful package!

I'm so glad that you had a good time and that you got so many good goodies! I've not read that book but it looks interesting.

I think it is neat that you made cookies to use the cookie cutters on right away. :)
