It's my day to host the Virtual Blog tour today - have fun! Lots of fun Christmas and Holiday stuff going on. I got my Holiday Swap package yesterday! The lovely Tanabata from inspringitisthedawn sent me, all the way from Japan, the third mystery that has been translated by Miyuki Miyabe, called Crossfire. I've read two of her other books and really liked them. To get the Japanese book all the way from Japan is just too cool. She also included a set of bookmarks and the sweetest Christmas card with a Japanese scene. It's quite lovely. Thank you very much.
There is voting going on at Sueys for the latest Bookword. Head on over and vote for what to call a bad-covered book. Voting lasts til Wednesday and it's pretty close right now.
In reading, I am in New Brunswick (just over the Northumberland Strait from the real me), then called Nova Scotia, in 1775. My name is Charlotte Taylor and I've run away from my family in England with our butler, and I am called the first woman settler of the Miramichi. (The Nine Live of Charlotte Taylor, by Sally Armstrong)
