Poprocks Bookswap book has come home!

Do ya'll remember the book swap that I joined?  I introduced it here and talked about writing a book inscription here.

Wellll.... I got my book in the mail!  Whoop whoop!

Hi Cynthia!  (my bookswap buddy)  *waves*

Doesn't getting a package make you happy -- especially when their is a surprise inside~

It looked something like this.... white padded glorious-ness!


I had been daydreaming about what kind of book would find it's way to me -- and I couldn't be happier!

I have already read the first bunch of pages and found myself laughing a bit out loud and smiling!

The book had a cute card tucked inside.  Doesn't it remind you of spring?  I have spring fever BAD!

Cynthia also took the time to highlight some interesting parts in the book, like this one.  I haven't gotten this far yet, but I couldn't resist a flip through the book to look for some of the highlights.  

Are you one of those people that reads the last page first?

I used to be really bad about reading the last page, but have since gained some self control.  

Honest.  

I didn't read it.  

Really really.  

Well maybe not all of it. 

This quote is a really good one.  I especially like the part about "...death... misses someone else..."  It's a very interesting way to flip things around and look at the bright side of things. 

Cynthia, thank you so much for sending this book over!  I hope you can leave a comment with your blog, so I can wander over and say hi!  

I am sure I am going to enjoy reading this one!

What are you reading right now?
