Santa Arrived Several Months Early!!

Sorry everyone, but I just had to share my excitement over a certain package I received in the mail today.  You know how you get those slips in the mail telling you to go pick up a parcel at your local post office, which is not unusual for a book blogger, so I thought nothing more of it.  When I gave the woman the slip, she came out with this
gigantic box!

I made sure that box was for me because I didn't remember having ordered anything, or having any review copies coming in that would come in a box that size.  I couldn't wait to get home and see what was in it.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and it was full of ARCs!!!!!!!   It was a donation from PENGUIN  (I love you  for my various book giveaways (Blogmania, Blog Fest, Got Books) that I have going on over the next few months.  I don't think I will ever get over the excitement of seeing a pile of brand new books, especially ones that have not yet been published.  I'm sorry if anyone else doesn't share my excitement, but that's how it is!  I even started reading one of the review copies I was sent in the box while I was cooking dinner.  Bad, so bad!  My hubby was laughing his head off.

I am not going to reveal any surprises (Okay, I will reveal one:  It's Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin, one of the books I mentioned on my WOW post yesterday, go figure!!!), but I was pretty impressed by what else was in the box. 

Look for future giveaways on Curling Up By The Fire as we head into some exciting months and events.

Have a great night everyone!
