@LapReader your #jolabokaflodswap package arrived today! Thank you! The package had been resealed & there was a note from the post office indicating that the original seal had been broken. But I don't think anything was tampered with. Thank you so much for the fab books, the very intriguing lime & pepper chocolate 😁, and your lovely note. I'm sure it's a huge relief to you that the package made it after the long wait ❤️ @MaleficentBookDragon

Cathythoughts Oh such lovely gifts 🎁👍🏻✨ 5mo
erzascarletbookgasm Yay! You received them! 5mo
batsy @Cathythoughts They are indeed 💕 5mo

batsy @TrishB @LapReader Totally bonkers at times 😕 Especially considering the cost of international postage! 5mo

readinginthedark Interesting Don Juan cover! 5mo
LeahBergen @batsy Oh, make sure you read Cheri first then (The Last of Cheri is the sequel ... in case the title didn‘t make that patently obvious 🤣). 5mo
Suet624 Lime and pepper chocolate! 5mo
batsy @readinginthedark It just jumps out at you, doesn't it! 5mo
batsy @LeahBergen Ahahaha, yes! Thank you, though. I was momentarily confused because I'd assumed there was only one Cheri book and didn't realise there were two. 5mo
batsy @Suet624 So intrigued! 5mo

I am sad. There are still some missing #jolabokaflodswap packages.
If you have not heard from me and still have not received a package let me know below.
I need 1 US angel (so far) and 1 International (non-Europe) angel.
I am still trying to get info to @batsy @erzascarletbookgasm and @bridge12 about their packages.
Please contact me @LapReader and @Joy0201
Thank you.

LapReader Sorry hectic holidays. Will send you the receipt today. 6mo
AmyG If you need a US angel....I am here. Just let me know. 6mo
Amiable I didn't participate because we were moving right at that time and things were crazy, but I'm happy to mail a book out to someone who didn't get one! 6mo
CareBear I‘m happy to help too, if you still need someone - either US or international. 6mo
Avanders I'm here too!! Let me know if you want me to send something -- you know my email ☺️ 5mo

The only reason I came back home (besides the given fact that I need to work to pay for things lol) is to open my #jolabokaflodswap bc I clearly forgot to pack it when I left for vacation. I'm beyond excited to get this book started! Btw the chocolates will be gone by the end of today lol. Thank you @Judybskt and @MaleficentBookDragon

Judybskt Glad you finally got to open it! Enjoy!! 📖🍫 6mo

@Sharpeipup #jolabokaflodswap Thank you so much. Your note was so sweet and the package was such a nice treat to come home to after a stressful day of traveling. The fancy chocolate isn't pictured because Hank was drawn to it instantly and didn't want him to get sick. Here he is holding the book hostage until he got a treat.

I've read The Hate U Give and loved it so much I wanted a copy to own, so we can discuss whenever.


tracey38 Love how he's holding the book hostage. So cute. 6mo
Sharpeipup Yay! I‘m so glad you like it & that it finally arrived. Hoping the chocolate survived the extended trip too...happy to see that your pup loves it too! 6mo
crazyspine @Sharpeipup the chocolate was amazing. Honestly, one of the best things I've ever eaten. 6mo
Sharpeipup Awesome! That chocolate shop made one of Oprah‘s favorite things this year so I had high hopes. 6mo
