I buy hundreds and hundreds of books a year - mainly for school, but also a far whack for home. Two are my most favourite books I have bought for home this year are Snail Mail and Craft for the Soul.
Both were sourced from Australia (they are Australian) - one by mail order with the husband bringing it back home and the other one, Snail Mail, by a friend visiting Australia. (one of my original penfriends April, who hails from USA, but has lived in NZ for years) - it was funny, as I had e-mailed her to ask her if she could pick up a copy for both of us there and I'd give it to her as a birthday gift. She had only just bought herself a copy an hour before hand :), so went back to grab me a copy too. So sweet. (I am despairing at NZ bookshops, apart from independent ones - I buy so much for school that I can honestly walk into Whitcoulls for example and find nothing new for school!)
Craft for the Soul is written by Pip Lincolne of Meet Me at Mikes blog fame.
Two perfect sweet books!
