Early Christmas Pressies for Literate Housewife

I have had the most wonderful things happen to me over the past two days – I’ve received two free books in the mail!!!

Yesterday there was a package waiting for me from Simon and Schuster.  I thought it might be the book that I snagged as part of LibraryThing‘s Early Reviewers group.  When I opened it, I was excited to find a brand new hard cover of Philippa Gregory‘s The Constant Princess!  This was completely unexpected.  I’ve already read the book, but to have a pristine hard cover is outstanding!!! I’m not exactly sure what I did to merit the give away.  I did register for updates from their website about Philippa, but that’s the only thing that I can think of.  Who cares how or why? I’m completely thrilled!  Thank you, Simon and Schuster!

Today, there was another package on my doorstep.  This time, it was from Random House.  Sure enough, it’s the absolutely perfect Advanced Reading Copy of Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell that I snagged on LibraryThing!!!!  I cannot wait to start reading it!!!!  Thank you Random House and LibraryThing!  I will post my review as soon as I’m finished reading this book.

Here’s hoping that you’ll find some great reads in your stockings as well.
