I got a pretty special package through the post today*.
It's a book. But before I unravelled that string and peeled off its paper, I didn't quite know what book it was.
You see, for the next eleven months, I'm getting a similar package posted to me on the first of every month. It's all courtesy of a bookshop based in Bath--Mr B's Emporium, should you want to look it up--and, more importantly, Arnold. (He might just be the greatest gift-giver of them all). A bibliotherapist was assigned to me and a secret list compiled and, well--this might just be the geekiest and the most exciting thing.
I am a very lucky girl.
This month's book was The Break, by Pietro Grossi. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes!
*I could not be more excited by--or in love with--that brown paper packaging and the wax seal.
**Oh, and just a little thing I stumbled across earlier. It brought even more of a smile.
