Book Swap Loot

Yesterday, I received in the mail a copy of A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman, courtesy of Melissa over at Scritture, as part of the Book Swap organized by Amy of Beauty Joy Food. I also received a wee little chocolate morsel, which Melissa tells me came from a trip she took to France, and some very cute Halloween stickers.

I love, LOVE receiving packages in the mail. I do most of my shopping online, so this happens frequently at Chez Kristi, but this time the experience was different, because I had no idea what would be in the package she sent. The book sounds fascinating. It's about the human emotions tied to each of the five senses, and a history of why certain experiences are tied to seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, and smelling.

And the timing was perfect, as I just finished reading the latest Harry Potter. Time to dive into my new book. Thanks, Melissa, for the great package, and thanks, Amy, for organizing such a fun activity.

    How fun! I thought about seeing if I could get in on that book swap, but I've got about 150 books in my "to read" stack already.

    Geekwif-the book swap was so much fun. Definitely get in on the next one, if you're still interested. What's one more book in the stack, right? ;)
