  1. Congratulations, Gabrielle and Ruth! Wooo-hooo :-)!

  2. Gabrielle and Ruth...I am jealous! These are dream prizes for category lovers :) Be sure to come back and tell us how you are enjoying them!

  3. Thanks everyone!! The poor old postie's going to be bowled over when he delivers the parcel! I can promise that the books are coming to a good home where they'll be much loved. I've already got my plan for when they arrive: instantly drop everything I'm doing, spread the books out all over my bed, read every blurb and scrutinise every cover while agonising over which book to read first, and then curl up with my little bub while she has her morning nap and I sneak some luxurious 'me' time (and the odd choccie). Bliss ;-)
