The person to whom I sent a Persephone book is Rose of Rose’s Year. The person from whom I am pleased to be the recepient of a Persephone book is Jeannie of Sam Still Reading.
As so often happens at Christmas time, I feel a bit of “The Gift of The Magi” at work. In November, I sent Jeannie the book Dewey’s Nine Lives for the Literary Blog Hop Give-away; in December she turns it around and gifts me for the Persephone Secret Santa.
Not only did I send Rose the newly published Persephone book Greenbanks, that is the very title I received.
Funny how Santa works, sometimes, in the book blogging world.
A heartfelt thank you to Verity and Claire, our hosts for Persephone Secret Santa, and to Persephone publishers themselves for making such lovely books available (I’ll visit your store, some day I hope!) and of course to Jeannie for such a thoughtful gift sent from across so many miles. Thank you all for helping to make my Christmas bright.
