Bookish things in the post

Life has been hectic for me lately, so I haven’t been paying the blog enough attention, but I’ve had a few bookish arrivals in the post that I thought I might share.

The Book Bloggers Holiday Card Exchange is a very lovely idea run by Courtney and Judith. When I got post from France I was initially confused who it could be from, but when I saw this lovely card inside it twigged:

My exchange partner was Beth and I love my French card and the very friendly bookish message written inside it, so thank you Beth.

I also received this very exciting book from And Other Stories:

First book on subscription from & Other Stories

And Other Stories is a small publisher that works on a subscription model. They publish six new books per year, often translations into English. Subscribers get their names printed in a numbered first edition of each book they subscribe to. I was very excited to read my name in this book! And as a bonus they included a few copies of this poem, which I have stuck to our fridge:

Lovely poem from & Other Stories

Have you had any good post lately?

    Nice card from Beth. Isn’t it fun getting post from abroad?

    A new Deborah Levy? I enjoyed Swimming Home – hope this one’s good too!

    Oh what a beautiful card! And how cool to see your name printed in that book.

    Judith Post is almost always fun! Thank you again for organising the exchange. Such a good idea. Black Vodka is officially being published in February but subscribers got it early as a Christmas bonus!

    Jinjer Yes, it’s pretty cool.

    Beth Hello! Hope my card to you turns up before Christmas too! Happy holidays, x

    I hope to work on posts for the future over my break. Here’s hoping inspiration hits!
