I'm won over by Georgette Heyer!

This has been a good year for me... turning 40 yrs old that is, because I have won 3 giveaways in the last year and up until then, I RARELY won anything! And this particular win was truly the highlight because I won 10 BOOKS! That's right ~ books! (Everybody swoons...)
About a month ago I entered this drawing at one of my favorite blogs ~ Jane Austen Today ~ and last week it was revealed that....(drum roll please...) the winner was ME! The prize is 10 books written by Georgette Heyer! (Everybody sighs now...)
And if these pictures don't reveal how excited I was to allow myself to be filmed in my evening gown for ya 'all to see, then I don't know how more real it can get here... I absolutely could not wait to open the box when my Man brought it in from the mailbox. Seriously, how could I have missed the size of this thing... perhaps I was distracted by two little people in the backseat... yes, that's it! I didn't change my clothes, put my hair back down or put my jewelry back on, I just dove right in!

I called my sister to share the news and she said... "Oh I wish it were raining today, it would be a perfect day to read a crisp new book!" I couldn't agree more!

I think I read every Georgette Heyer novel the library had. Have you ever read R.F. Delderfield? You'd probably like those as well. Enjoy, rainy day or not.

Not just one book but ten! You lucky ducky. We really did all *swoon* upon hearing that news for you. Not at all jealous (big lie). Have fun!

How exciting! And how many did you win, you lucky gal you?!

Congratulations, Janeen! Now, you can start the Georgette Heyer Book Club! :))

Without moments like these life would be lackluster! Surprises are the best sparks for the heart and soul, aren't they? Enjoy, Janeen! :))

I am so happy for you. I have not read her books, but the covers look like they are right up my alley. Yes, you could start a bookclub with these. We must hear all about them. Ten books...that was a jackpot! Cha Cha, 40 is great, but I will be 60 in a few weeks and I pray it will be fantastic!!!!

I've never heard of Georgette Heyer (which doesn't mean anything). So, I Googled the gal. The web site makes her sound interesting: born in UK (check), writes mystery (check), romances, historicals (check, check). Works for me! I may have to check out her writings. Thanks for sharing pal! :)

I absolutely agree! A crisp new book is one of the best things in life.

Chacha - I'm just popping that little item in the mail (it may take some time to get there, sorry. Also sorry for taking so long to get it in the mail in the first place.) It's all ready to go!
