The Best Thing About Birthdays

It was my birthday on Sunday. I was having one of those, lets pretend I'm not getting older by celebrating my birthday years. Sigh. However I did get some amazing books from friends.



See?! Don't I have awesome friends? Thanks Suey, Trina and Christal....oh, and me. Yes, I bought myself a few books too.

  3. Happy Birthday, Jenny! I hope you had a really great day, and I see you hit the jackpot with your birthday book haul. Nobody ever buys me books because they don't even know what I want, or what I don't already have, lol. So true. Only a book lover can buy for a book lover.

  4. Happy birthday Jenny! I'd say I had no idea, but I guess that was the point. :) Looks like a lot of fun books, too.
    I was sad I couldn't stick around last night to talk with everyone, but it was good to see you!

  7. Oh why didn't you say it was your birthday on Sunday?? Happy belated birthday. None of us are getting older *cough* At least our reading keeps us young. I can't wait to see what you think of Croak and Smoke and Bone as they're books I want to read but am too worried I won't like them! Hope you had a really great day.
