Ghir, I take my hat off to you!
You sure do know how to surprise a girl! :D


Not only did you RABCK me a wonderful wishlist book (A Clockwork Orange), but you also added a book, this book, which I've been missing like crazy ever since I lent my copy to an acquaintance years ago, who then never returned it. And you were a sneaky little devil and entered the wrong details (Hidden in Plain Sight - good choice!) for this BCID so I wouldn't figure it out when browsing your bookshelf! Moreover, looking at the date this book was registered, I'd dare say you acquired it ESPECIALLY for me... You Rock!!! :D

In a minute I will be off to brew the yummy passionfruit orange organic green & black tea that came together with the fabulous books.

The Thief of Always will be going into my permanent collection for now, but not forever. I want to read it again, once or twice, and then I'll send it on for others to also enjoy.
It may be a teen book and utterly uncharacteristic of Clive Barker, but it's written so well and carries a strong message - it's one of my all time favourites!


Journal Entry 3 by vedranaster at Zagreb, Zagreb City Croatia on Saturday, November 03, 2012

Today, while aimlessly wondering through a local bookstore -- one which I wasn't planning to visit but ended up going to after discovering that the store I usually go to no longer works Saturday afternoons, or maybe just not this Saturday due to the All Saints' holidays -- I entered the foreign books section, and there, staring straight at me -- an old but brand new copy of The Thief of Always. Can you say, at the right place at the right time? *grin*
As you can imagine, I grabbed it as soon as I saw it. :)

Thank you once again for surprising me beyond words with this copy, which you found and sent me in that wonderfully sneaky double RABCK way. :D
I am now marking it as available, and will let it spread its wings and wonderfulness.

What an incredible surprise! I, too, loved this book when I first read it. I just didn't recognize the first sentence when I selected this for one of my First Sentences Virtual Book Box choices.

Vedranaster, you clearly have excellent taste in books. Thank you! This is like a visit from an old friend. I will re-read it and then re-release it to someone who will hopefully appreciate it as much as we have. :-)

P.S. I apologize for not making the journal entry for this book right away. (Yes. I *do* plan to be "late for my own funeral", as the expression goes! Haha!)
