Blogger Love.....


Have I ever mentioned how much I love my fellow bloggers?? I know I have...but today I have a well-deserved shout out. I was going to post a book review, but I thought this was more important.

I posted after Christmas that I was a little disappointed that I didn't get any books. That was just me being a little whiny after reading about all the wonderful books everyone had received. Bygones. But today, I'm leaving my house, and there is an Amazon package by my front door. Well, I knew I didn't order anything, so I thought maybe they delivered something for my in-laws by mistake. They live on the same street and it's happened before. But no....this addressed to me.

So, I open it up and there is John Green's Paper Towns....a book I have been coveting for a while now. And a note from Debi. "Hi Stephanie. Just couldn't stand the thought that you got no books for Christmas, so I just had to get you this. Hope you enjoy it! A very belated Merry Christmas, Debi."

I have to tell you, it made me cry. AND to top it all off, it arrived on my birthday!! Really, there aren't enough words to describe how much I appreciate this gesture. So Debi, THANK YOU!! You are truly one of the most special people I have met.

I love you guys!!

Hi Stephanie: I just started my own book blog for many of the same reasons you state you did...a place to talk about what I'm reading with other readers and book lovers,and to get some suggestions from them. I love your blog. I agree with you - the best present under the Christmas tree is usually a book - the second best a gift certificate to a book store. I have already added some of your suggestions to my own reading list. (Readers certainly do love lists, don't we??)
