This is going to be a bit of a birthday brag, but this, my friends and fellow booklovers, is what I consider the best way to spend a birthday….surrounded by new books you were presented with.
I received some love from my #JustBecause (#JB) Litsy pen pal group with lots of cards, stickers, bookmarks, and the following packages.
My parents clearly understand my love of Jane Austen and coffee. Plus, who doesn’t love a good tote bag!
I recently spoke to my BFF about my obsession with Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and my disappointment that I hadn’t read the book first. I also stated that I refused to see the Crazy Rich Asians movie until I had read that book. She decided to help me rectify this situation.
Last but definitely not least, my husband got my three books. He got me Proust’s In Search of Lost Time from my favorite bookstore in Paris – Shakespeare and Company. He also got me two amazing and beautiful first editions that include Dicken’s Nicholas Nickleby and L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, which is one of my favorite books of all time.
I am so grateful for friends and family that truly appreciate my love of books! Can’t wait to read all of these!
