Yay! Books in the mail!

Confused now, though - the picture is wrong, I got "Ravensdale", as expected, not "A Winter in Ravensdale". Anyhoo, at least the journal notes go with the BCID so who cares?

Looking muchly forward to this one.

A decent read, this, not the best book ever, but entertaining and at times touching, besides being about one of my favourite parts of the world (the british countryside - one of my other favourite parts being british cities...)

I've passed it to a friend, here's to hoping she'll get around to registering (I promise to try to pester her into it...)
