Finished the audiobook today!

Thank you @Ddzmini for the #ShortStorySwap book!

An epic tale through the Scottish highlands to gain his rightful inheritance!!!

An interesting take on The Enchantress and a period of time that is missed in the animated tale. Wasn‘t too engaging; I picked it up and set it down again. Easy and quick reading, short chapters.

Thanks, again, to @Ddzmini and the #ShortStorySwap for the book!

Finally getting around to saying thankyou for my #ShortStorySwap gifts @LeeRHarry I love the choices you made. 2 of them are writers I haven‘t heard of but they sound fantastic. Thanks for your bravery and as I am sure you know, Earl Grey tea is my favourite.

LapReader @CSeydel thanks for organising and being patient with me. 1y
CarolynM I love all three of those books❤️ Hope you will enjoy them. Brilliant choices @LeeRHarry 👏 1y

Home from vacation to a wonderful #shortstoryswap parcel from @BookishMe. It's amazing!
Look at all these gorgeous books! I love that you included a mix of authors, some familiar and some new-to-me. I loved the note explaining why you chose the books. And yay for coffee, tea, and snacks!
Thank you! Thank you!

LeahBergen There are some great reads here! 1y

BookishMe I am delighted you've finally received them and like the mix of books. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did/ expect to 💞📚💞 oh regarding that nut snack, not sure if it's still ok to consume cos it's been nearly, if not more than a month since I sent it. To play safe, it may be best not to consume it ;)) 1y
BookishMe @Tanisha_A thank you 💗 💗 it was such fun, and a little hard ;p, selecting them. So many wonderful choices to choose from ;p 1y
BookishMe @LeahBergen Ikr! I nearly wanted to keep that and send another Malgudi title ;p but I am getting same (striking) edition for myself. Have you read any of the Malgudi stories or RKN's books? 1y
CSeydel Yay! 1y
merelybookish @LeahBergen I know! I love Puffin classics. It says this one is only sold in the Indian Subcontinent and Singapore. 1y
merelybookish @Tanisha_A Agreed! The Asian titles are particularly fun to get! 1y
merelybookish @BookishMe I love it all! Thank you again. Do nuts go bad? I feel like I need to brave a taste! The packaging is so appealing! 1y
Tanisha_A @BookishMe @merelybookish I want to get to Ghachar Ghochar sometime soon. And that edition of Malgudi Schooldays is super cute, I may get that one too! 😆 1y
erzascarletbookgasm 😍 they look wonderful! 1y
LeahBergen @BookishMe I‘ve heard of the author but never read anything by him! I‘m a sucker for a good school story. 😄 1y
BookishMe Hey, I checked with the stall where I got the nuts. They are good up to months - phew! 😄 😄 1y
BookishMe @LeahBergen have you read this series? Endearingly hilarious 1y
LeahBergen @BookishMe Oh, that sounds good! *stacked* 1y
merelybookish @BookishMe Excellent! 😋 1y

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories gifted to me by @Zelma for the #shortstoryswap recently. I loved how weird and sometimes disturbing these stories were, revolving around housewives and their often macabre hobbies. This isn‘t a book I had heard of before, and I really enjoyed it. Thanks again Zelma!

emilyhaldi I'm listening to this one audio right now.... Its bizarre! 1y
Zelma I‘m so glad you liked it! 👍 1y
MaggieCarr The neighbor one had me rolling on the floor laughing 1y
CindyE09 @MaggieCarr Haha me too and then that woman was mentioned in a later story! 1y
