This is the first time I have ever taken part in the "In My Mailbox" meme. But some things are just so special that they have to be shared: Today I got home-made cookies from Kristin Cashore.
And signed copies of her books. Because this year I took part in the Blogger Secret Santa gift swap, and Kristin Cashore was my Secret Santa!!!!! Am I not lucky?
I feel especially lucky because Fire was on my Christmas wants list (see post below). And no one had gotten it for me, and I would have cried at Christmas. I haven't read it yet--although I did win an ARC at one point, it seems to have gotten lost in the mail, and by the time it was actually released, I was reading for the Cybils, so I am very happy.
And the cookies are very, very good!
Thank you Kristin!
Just a side note: today is the last day to enter my giveaway of my ARC of Conspiracy of Kings, which feels nicely symmetrical to me--balancing my happiness of today with another reader's happiness tomorrow. (And I guess, being extremely unselfish, that I could send the winner of my giveaway a few of my Kristin Cashore cookies, too...).
