Unexpected Bag of Books From Tasmania

It's been a while since I last posted; and so I thought to let you all know about a surprise that showed up in my PO Box.  On my way out to do the shopping, I checked the mail - as always - and found a parcel pick-up.  Normally, I'd leave that kind of thing until later in the afternoon when all my shopping is done.  However, today, I wanted to pick everything up as it looked like rain.  So, I did.
It was a parcel from Tasmania - from a Bookcrossing friend - who had received a prize from my Birthday Clearance.  She thought to put together a bag for me and sent it my way.  Well, what a surprise this was to find a 3kg bag to be given to me by the Sanjay at Slacks Creek.  I really wasn't expecting anything.  And the books are some I'd get my nose into in the next year or so.  There were 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Kaled Hosseini, 'The Legacy' by David Suzuki, 'Otherland Vol 1' by Tad Williams, 'Bless Me, Ultima' by Rudolfo Anaya and 'One Tree' by Stephen Donaldson.  Actually, one of them is off my Wish List ('Legacy' by David Suzuki')and another looks very fascinating too;('Bless Me, Ultima' by Rudulfo Anaya) both of them have been added to my Christmas Holiday Reading List.  Well, I thought to share this with you guys as it's always lovely to receive surprises in the mail; and even better to share it with people who share you passion.
