B is for… Book Club

Twitter Book Club

Ever so occasionally I have a bright idea!

Recently I have been wondering if there is a twitter book club – where we can swop books with each other. I’ve been trawling through twitter but haven’t found one, so I am now thinking about setting one up.

Oooooh I wonder if the handsome and wise Richard Madeley @richardm56 would be our twitter #bookclub patron….

So, please could you let me know if you would be interested in a twitter book club (think #secretpostclub but, not secret, and with books….) can you comment below to let me know:

1) If you’d be interested.

2) Would you prefer to list books you’d like and books you have available to swop and then be paired up with someone.

3) Would you prefer to just be allocated a person to send a book to – and someone else be allocated to send a book to you? ie – you would receive a random book of any genre.

4) Any other suggestions?

OBVIOUSLY we will need a #bookclub badge which I am wondering if the lovely @SecretDadsDiary would be able to make for us? *cough* hint hint

Let me know what you think guys xx

S is for… Secret Post Club

10th Secret Post Club

Arrived today and what a lovely surprise all the way from the US of A!

As you can see it contains a bag stuffed full of ‘bold’ starbucks coffee (which is brewing in my cafetier as we speak) a bag of traditional ‘fall’ sweets and a beautiful hand-made book mark – along with a lovely note from the sender! Thank you @moneypenny_usa for  my lovely gift x

9th Secret Post Club

I didn’t receive anything, boo! And the person I sent to didn’t acknowledge receipt of theirs either :(

 

8th Secret Post Club 

Not sure what happened to the 7th, I forgot to blog it! Sorry.

But the 8th arrived today:

I’m so excited by the notebook. I’ll probably never write in it because it’s new, and perfect and lovely and therefore anything I write in it will sully it….however I will keep it and love it! The book mark is brilliant and is already tucked into the book that I’m reading – you can’t beat an evil penguin!

It was accompanied by a lovely little note, well it looked lovely until I read the back and realised it was made from recycled sheep poo!

Many, many thanks to Charlotte for my lovely gift.

And to Heather for creating the Secret Post Club :)

6th Secret Post Club

I got my secret post club parcel really early this month! What a lovely surprise :)

What’s extra lovely is that the book was bought in America (I think) it has that lovely rough cut feel to the pages that I simply adore.

I love this gift, cherish books as a rule anyway and I’m really looking forward to reading this one (with it’s lovely rough uncut pages…..) – I never buy magazines so it will be a real indulgence when I settle down with this one and my LARGE bar of chocolate!

BIG thanks to www.mumof4.wordpress.com for my lovely gift.

BIG thanks to @notefromlapland for the Secret Post Club.

5th Secret Post Club

I was getting a little petulently put this as October ticked on by and I didn’t receive my secret post club parcel – so it was extra lovely to come home on Friday to find not one, but two lovely slices of @thecakenest chocolate cake waiting for me!

Thank you @arcticmummy

4th Secret Post Club!

A HUGE thank you to @carolinemathews for my 4th secret post club parcel – packed to the brim with loveliness! A cutesy notepad, a gorgeous cupcake note, a KitKat dark (which is now in the fridge for later!), a girly sparkly headband and a FAB Olay Total effects radiance enchancing cream wash!

I feel spoiled rotten today – this is like a little birthday!

Thank you Caroline and thank you @notefromlapland for the #secretpostclub

3rd Secret Post Club

Huge thanks today to ‘Laura’ for my secret post club parcel.

I got 2 packages in the post today – the 1st filled the room the the aroma of fresh coffee as soon as I opened it! It was wonderful and it contained a beautifully quilled (I think that is what it is called, although I may need to look that up…) card which said that this was part 1 of my secret post club gift and that I needed to fill the kettle, make the coffee and enjoy it with part 2….

Fortunately, part 2 was delivered at the same time (well done royal mail!) so I got to enjoy my lovely coffee with a slice of @thecakenest gorgeous double chocolate cake!

Life rocks.

Thank you Laura – although you didn’t include your twitter name so I don’t know who you are to say thank you properly :(

And big thanks to Heather for the Secret Post Club.


2nd Secret Post Club

It was my son’s 9th birthday yesterday so when a brown box was delivered I assumed it was for him….. but no, MY name was on the top! Childish excitement then ensued as I sat down to open the box – inside I found:

First thing I noticed was the lovely smell! Which was confusing to start with as the first thing I found was a box of 3 different types of coffee (I can’t wait to try these in my cafetiere!), then I found an envelope with a note to me enclosed from the lovely @elainescott77 of elainescott77.blogspot.com who sent my parcel. Further down in some bubble wrap was a massive cat cup and saucer and then finally towards the bottom I found the source of the lovely smell…. not illict drugs as it looks in the photo but a packet of delicious smelling bath fizz!

Thank you @elainescott77 and thank you @notefromlapland for creating the secret post club!

ps I would love to add a secret post club badge to my wordpress blog – does anyone have the code?

It was with a ridiculous amount of excitement that I received my first Secret Post Club parcel!

I literally ripped it open to find:

A tin of mints in a lovely art deco case, a gorgeous little heart shaped sign saying ‘sunshine follows the rain’, a sweet little note pad, some chocolate and a tiny silver globe with a note saying ‘the little world is for you to keep in your pocket so that you remember the world is yours you just have to believe’ how cute is that!

Heartfelt thanks to Sara for my gift and note – I really appreciate it!

And heartfelt thanks to Heather @notefromlapland for the whole Secret Post Club!
