In My Mailbox #1-2011

Thank you to Kristi at The Story Siren for holding this lovely meme; with which I get to thank the generous & absolutely lovely people who share their books with me (can be read as feed the addiction).

This IMM includes the week before Christmas and the subsequent weeks up until yesterday. I didnt get any books for Christmas (I actually only had one gift from my Sister because all the money went on the girlies, which is as it should be [ : D ] Saying that I have had some wonderful gifted books from my gorgeous blogger buddies (and you wonder why I say you make me cry with your generosity)

From the library:

A Christmas card & Beautiful ANGEL WINGS from Jennifer Laurens
(yes as you would expect from me I cried when I opened the envelope-such a wonderful surprise. I was actually speechless , lol)
The wings are now hanging by my desk for me to gaze at all the time [ : D ] 


(this has been on my wishlist forever)

Gifted: from the ever so lovely Tammy at The Book Fairys Haven

From UK Book Tours (I <3 Lynsey)

Won for the school library from Heaven, Hell and Purgatory Book Reviews

The gorgeous Christmas card I received from Clover at Fluttering Butterflies
(I adore homemade)

The fantastic Christmas card along with a handmade ornament and Body Finder swag from the lovely Sya at The Mountains of Instead
You are so creative I love it and it is a beautiful addition to my Christmas tree ornaments 

Gifted from the wonderful Clover at Fluttering Butterflies

Along with the beautiful Clair de Lune signed bookmark and card shown below
Clover did a lovely post about book swag here I think that when you are a book loving person *addict* you get attached to all  the pretty covers so swag is something that automatically goes to feed the love *habit*

Gifted from fabulous Kirsty at The Overflowing Library

See how lucky I am to know such generous and truly lovely people. I apprecaite it

Please dont think I take without giving back:
Clover had my copy of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Sya had a few things on loan LOL
