books in the mail!

This year, I have been receiving books in the mail more than the usual (the usual beingΒ  never, haha), and each time the sight of a parcel in my table has never failed to make me squee in delight. Who wouldn’t? These are books, man. BOOKS! πŸ˜€

So, this morning I was greeted by this wonderful sight (again) at my table.

Even if I had been expecting this package to arrive (the sender already forewarned me the day before) still, I am delighted and (mildly) surprised. Surprises. Don’t we all love them (sometimes)?

Here is what’s inside of the package. Squee with me again. πŸ˜€

Thank you, Tricia! <3

Tricia of In Lesbians With Books is the kindred spirit behind this sweet surprise — my very first Christmas present for this year. Thank you so much! πŸ™‚

Now, on to the books.

I have been reading a lot of good reviews for The Unbearable Lightness Of Being by Milan Kundera. Never mind that I was not that impressed with Identity, the very first Kundera book I ever read. I just saw Tricia’s tweet one day that she’s giving away her copy of Unbearable so I just grabbed the chance. πŸ˜€

The other book is Cupidity: 50 Stupid Things People Do For Love And How To Avoid Them by Hayley and Michael DiMarco.

I won Cupidity at the book giveaway at Tricia’s blog in celebration of the Manila International Book Fair for this year. The book looks very interesting and I am planning to buy some copies to give to some friends for this Christmas. Thank you, OMF Literature! πŸ™‚

Two more books added to Mountain T0-Be-Read Shelf. I am expecting more books in the mail before the year ends. Book hoarding alert, yes? Not even the rain can dampen my spirits today. I am such a happy soul! πŸ™‚

What about you? What made you happy today? I’d love to hear about it! πŸ™‚

  1. WOW! I’m so happy for you! Free books are always a joy. I just went to a nearby Fully Booked branch to let my annoyance wear off (I’m a little out of my element today, it’s what I call the Midweek Crisis). And even though I haven’t been able to find a book from my ambitious wish list, the sight and smell of books made me feel a bit better. πŸ˜€

    1. Oh yes, I can totally relate with you in making a bookstore visit a therapy for a bad day. I do that all the time. Just the sight of books can uplift my sour mood. Are we weird or what? Though I like being weird like that. Haha.
