Fall Book Swap

I participated in a fall book swap hosted by a fellow blogger over at her site Zazazu. We were matched up with a swap partner, and were to exchange one book and a few little items that remind us of fall. My partner is Pina who happens to live in Slovenia. It's been very exciting for me to get to know her and learn about her country. I think that it's pretty amazing...someone whom I would have never had the chance to know or meet, but, because of the wonderful world of blogging and swaps, I now have a new friend who lives in another part of the world. I received her awesome swap package yesterday and had so much fun opening all her little goodies...some tea, chocolate, candles, bath cube, seeds, and more. She really sent a wonderful package! The book that she sent is called The Howling Miller by Arto Paasilinna. One of the points of the swap, was to send your partner a book that you love, expose them to a particular author or genre of reading that they might not otherwise have read. I've not heard of the title that she sent me nor of the author. But, it sounds like an interesting story and I'm anxious to begin reading it. I sent her a novel by one of my favorite authors. I will post about the book tomorrow, as I'm not sure if she has opened my package and I will let it be a surprise for her.

Thanks to Karen at Zazazu for hosting this swap. It's been a great experience.

How fun. Blogging makes the world a small place sometimes, huh? I found so many great books through other bloggers.
