I was underwhelmed. There was a lot of repetition, it was poorly edited (so many typos and errors), and the prose was dry. It felt like a bad textbook. Bailey wasn‘t impressed either.

Oh @AmyG I LOVE my #wintersolsticeswap box!😍 First off, it was such a treat to come home to after sitting in the emergency vet parking lot most of the day. 😬 I love ALL of the books & the mix of non-fiction, fiction & even a #sundaybuddyread title! The Moonology oracle cards are gorgeous & fascinating, (I know what I‘ll be doing tonight!), the tumbler is fun, the candle smells amazing & I love the self-care tin with the little goodies & the ⬇️

DebinHawaii …Libra crystals. The chocolate is always welcome. The Cadbury & Whitman‘s Sampler remind me of my mom. 💜 The pretty notepad & snowflake cookie cutter are great too. And I just saw the tea & cocoa in the tumbler too. You spoiled me! Thank you so much & thank you @Chrissyreadit & @sprainedbrain for fabulous #WSS hosting & the extra kindness & grace needed today. A blessed solstice & happy holidays to you all! 💙💙💙 1mo

Avanders @Crazeedi same here — so happy to have you as a swap partner 🤗🤗 And yes! You told me about your connection to Abq! And indeed, it definitely does get cold here! Our average winter lowest-lows are teens and twenties, but it has been known to get even colder than that! ❄️☃️💙 1mo

This made me giggle!!! #wintersolstice @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks LOL I could NOT get that tinsel to stay in there while I was trying to tape the box! 😂 I thought I was so clever using it as packing material, but I was starting to doubt my genius at that point!! 😆 1mo

LeahBergen I‘m intrigued by that Suffolk Folk book. 😍 1mo
Mitch @LeahBergen it‘s a publication from a local university‘s graduate writing programme - where each student has retold a local folk tale that is tied to the Suffolk landscape. 👍🏼 1mo
