I don't know why it took me until nearly the end of the month to write about this, but I got some lovely gifts from the husband this year that I wanted to share. Firstly, look how pretty Persephone gift wrapped their books for us, without even it being requested! Lovely, lovely. Here are the titles he chose from their collection:
I'm only one chapter into Greenbanks, but it has already sucked my into the story. I'm excited to find the time to read more. Lady Rose and Mrs. Memmary has gotten mixed reviews on Good Reads, but I was attracted to this one because it takes place in Scotland. I'm planning on either reading it right before our trip or while on the trip. The Expendable Man...detective mystery turned film noir movie, enough said.
I was also pleased to see that Persephone is now offering eBooks. I definitely prefer printed books to electronic ones, but there are some books I would like to have in both print and digital form so that I have access to it if I need a quick pick me up while traveling. (When I use the eReader the most.)
The other gift he gave me is the scent In the Library from CB I Hate Perfume. Now, I am not a fan of perfume at all. I haven't worn any since high school, but I decided to buy a sample of a couple of their fragrances because a friend recommended them. I tried out Russian Caravan Tea and the library one. I really liked both, but felt In the Library was better for everyday wear and awesomely, C surprised me buy buying a full size of the scent.
So, that's what I'll be smelling and reading over the next few months!
