Great review of The Pink Hotel! Thanks for that! Thumb up from me. I hope to read that long listed orange.

Hi there,
I just wanted to let you know that the books arrived safely late last week, and it was lovely to receive them. Thank you so much. Honestly, "Room" was the best Christmas gift I received this year :)

Looking forward to having a look at the other one as well, but it will have to be AFTER Room - I can't wait - tee hee.

I hope that your books arrived too, and that you were excited to receive them!

Thanks again,

I'm glad to hear you like my picks for you. Have a nice time reading them.

Kind regards
Hi nomadreader,
OMG I cannot tell you how excited I was to read (because the books haven't arrived yet) that you had chosen Room for me! How did you ever know that it was my MOST wished for book, ever since it came out???? And it is truly a miracle that I was able to resist the urge not to purchase it myself before now. You have made me sooooo happy!

The second book that you have chosen for me remains a surprise until the books arrive - as it should be! And that thrills me too. Thanks so much for giving such careful attention to your choices for me. I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas, and that your Santathing was very good to you, too :)

All the best,
P.S. I will write again when the books arrive!
