Package received

Yipeeee I received the package of books today! There are exactly 25 awesome books with notes and letteres from the ladies who sent them to me. That's so nice and lovely. I'm feeling so happy today to get them all. I never thought that I would have them, it was almost impossible to me! ( though someone told me one day that there is nothing impossible in this life, you have to expect everything anytime) That person was so right, however, he didn't believe it to himself! We'll talk about this person later.

There is a book from Oprah's Book Club. A bulky novel about slavery.. I didn't memorize all of the titles, I will write them later in tonight's post. Another book was Chicken Soup for Women's Soul, it's about self-improvment. Two novels by John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men, and The Grapes of Wrath.. (SO GREAT) I've already read Of Mice and Men as it was my graduation research. I picked the theme of loneliness in the novel to talk about in that research.
There are few Children Books like A Cat in The Hat and such... Books about the history of the United States and the Civil War ( I demanded that).. The greates book ever which is "Beuwolf" The first English Poem! It was written during the Anglo-Saxons reign sometime before the ninth or the tenth century. I had to look up the exact date and write it down...


I'll keep some for later to talk about !

See ya all....Gotta go start reading one of those books..

How did you get the books? I too am interested in reading, but I never thought I can get mail till today..

Last time I visited your blog, you were talking about your scholarship.. Then, I knew we might have somethings in common.

Will be reading your blog more now.. Wish you luck and success.

Hiii there sis, thanks for visiting my blog and for the linking :)

I saw that you didn't enable comments in your blog, so I decided to write here...

I still can't believe that we can receive mail from far away countries! I keep looking at the books not believeing my eyes!! Now I don't know where to start reading, they are all my favourite books!

So, about how did I got the books... I got to meet an American woman in Oprah.com and she offered to send me books and also asked if I had a wish list.. I told her to send me any book cuz I didn't think that I can receive them and it would be a big loss if they get lost in the mail ! So I made a P.O.Box at the college postal ofice and received the package after three weeks :)

I have been in your blog once before, but I will start visiting from now on.. I promise :)

Have a nice time with your new CD's, and inshallah you'll go to the college you like.. college life is short and wonderful, seize it till the last moment.
