Christmas surprise package from Efell/ Eva from Austria:

Christmas in January: I received a package from a BookCrossing friend today & was totally amazed! Thank you Eva/Efell for a beautiful & surprise package. It contained a huge variety of things: 2 boxes of tea (Christmas/Weihnachts & In The Mountains/Huttenzauber), 2 books (Where Three Roads Meet & The Icelandic Yuletide Lads), lots of German chocolate & chocolate gingerbread cookies, homemade bookcrossing labels but the best gifts were the ones she sewed: a Christmas book cover, Christmas tree & star ornaments, a burlap Christmas stocking, a beautiful scarf & bag, & a case made from a tie. Also she made 3 bell ornaments from k-cups. Very resourceful and very personal! I am amazed!! Above is a picture.


I love to read and have been leaving my books at places (after I read them)for years. I had no idea there were others like me.
I have been married 38 years, 4 adult kids. I have 2 grandsons;Kaden & Tristan, a granddaughter; Zoey Ela.
We also a boxer, male, Gizmo.

You're The Hobbit!

by J.R.R. Tolkien

All you wanted was a nice cup of tea when some haggard crazy old man
came into your life and told you it was time to do something with yourself. Now you're
all conflicted about whether to stick with your stay-at-home lifestyle or follow this
crazy person into the wild. While you're very short and a little furry, you seem to be
surrounded by an even greater quantity of short folks lately. Try not to lose your ring,
but keep its value in perspective!
