Love that Courier Guy

 It's always exciting when one of those courier trucks pulls into my driveway.  What is he going to bring to my door this time.  Fortunate for me and my reading habit, he brought me books twice this week, and it's only Tuesday.

First was a prize package from Rachelle at  She had hosted a year long reading challenge and recently drew names for the prize winners.  As she remarked, all the participants were winners as they all read some pretty amazing, quality books.  Now I have more books to read.  I also won the coolest of book bags.  I really must get out and about so I can carry it with me.  That's my daughter modelling it.

Next day arrived a prize package from Tundra Books.  If you're not already a follower of their blog, Talking with Tundra, you should sign up as they host some wonderful blog book tours as well as terrific contests.

How wonderful, such an amazing selection and what a great bag. I read the Kingmaking a while ago (before I started blogging) and really enjoyed it so look forward to your review.
