I got a box of books!

I got a box of books, I got a box of books, and guess what’s inside it!

Okay, so I took a little liberty with Mr. Jack Sparrow’s lines, but nonetheless it’s true. I did receive a box of books today, which for a voracious reader like me, always feels like Christmas.

It doesn’t matter that I’m the one who ordered and paid for the books. Novels unread hold surprises all their own. It’s like I know I ordered a treasure chest but don’t know what is inside. There could be gold or jewels or maps…or nothing but air. The fun is in not knowing.

So what was today’s treasure chest? The Bones of Makaidos by Bryan Davis. And from everything I hear, this will be an interesting chest to unlock indeed.

I love finding a box of good books at a garage sale! That's a lot like finding buried treasure...
