Just in time for Christmas, I received a package in the mail from the UK. I didn’t even know we got mail on Christmas Eve. Yay! The wonderful package came from Sophie over at An Embarrassment of Frivolities. She is my wonderful Persephone Secret Santa. I saved the package to open on Christmas Day and I’m certainly glad I did. Wrapped in the most lovely bookish Christmas paper was Tea With Mr. Rochester by Frances Towers. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this collection of stories and have had my eye on it so I was very excited to receive it. The wrapping displays a variety of classic Christmas books and is just lovely. I hope you can see it clearly from the pictures. Also in the package were a thoughtful card, bookmark, pen, and pencil from the gorgeous Bodleian Library in Oxford. I have gladly added these all to my bookmark, pen, and pencil collections. And what a good idea to send something local and representative of the city in which your Secret Santa lives.
Thank you Sophie for a most thoughtful gift!
Persephone Secret Santa was organized and hosted by Book Psmith. Check here to see all of the gift giving festivities. I enjoyed it much and hope we can all do it again next year!
