Lovely, globe-trotting, blog-friend Jeanne of
the amazing Collage of Life blog; she, who sometime in the next year will be winging her way to Vietnam for their next posting, planted this seed of an idea about
book-sharing when she created
You can find her list of recommended books
Today, I received my first book in
The Brown Paper Book Club from my dear friend Petra.
Even though Petra didn't know she was participating!
It's about Food and India and France.
Three things Petra knows I adore.
She even inscribed it for me...a little tentative about her choice as I am typically so hard to please when it comes to books! However, I know I am going to love it.
And when I have finished reading it,
I will inscribe it, tie it up lovingly in brown paper and string
and send it on it's way to you Victoria.
And then you can do the same to, perhaps Jessica? and she can send it to Tally, who can send it to Lindsay, who can send it to Annie...and on and on it will travel.
Each time a little more dog-eared, a little more underlined, a little more loved.
I love the romance of this idea.
Thank you Jeanne.
Thank you Petra.
Thank you Postman.
