I know what people think I need - books! I have received so many books as gifts that I will be reading all year! It's a good thing that I did some much-needed catching up on reducing my TBR pile before the big day because since Christmas Day, the to be read pile has grown again and I think it's even larger than before. Luckily some of the books I was give are very short or quick and easy to read - Simon's Cat cartoons for one - so I have managed to deal with a couple of those.
And notebooks - I received some gorgeous notebooks . . .now I wonder what I'll be writing in those in 2012!
Anyway, 2012 is coming to a close and 2013 looms on the horizon - but before we step out into the brand new year, there are some things that need tidying up from 2012. The Advent Calendar for one.
There are some give aways to announce and send out - some prizes that haven't been collected - and there are some little extras to finish.
So - the winner of one of my oldest books - First Man - was Maria
Prizes not claimed;
The Konstantos Marriage Demand was won by N'digo_anjel
Chey wins a copy of The Good Greek Wife.
Debby G who won Mediterranean Tycoons -
Please claim your books, ladies or they will go back into the box for next time.
And there are some books here that I have brought out of the storage boxes but I don't want to have to go and put them back in so I got Flora on the job of picking and the result was:
Desere - The Return of the Stranger
Mary Preston - Kept for Her Baby
Kaelee and Rita - you win your choice of my back list
Please contact me with your postal addresses using the link below.
I'll hope to get organised now - and I'll wish you all a very very happy New Year, hoping that 2013 will be a gentle year for everyone - with love and warmth and happiness.
See you then!
