My Phantom Book Benefactor has struck again. Last time it was Twilight, and this time it is This is Your Brain on Musicby Daniel J. Levitin. It looks really good. I haven’t heard of it, but as soon as I’m done with the book I’m currently reading (The Secret Book of Grazia dei Rossi by Jacqueline Park… I’m really, really into this one about an Italian Jew in Renaissance Italy), I will be reading my new book. I love getting new books!
Seriously though… one of you HAS to know who is so kindly and anonymously sending me books. It’s the same situation as last time… an unexpected envelope addressed to me with an unfamiliar return address. I was puzzled because I hadn’t ordered anything and Ches hadn’t mentioned ordering anything for me. I opened the envelope to find a book inside with an invoice from Amazon.com. Once again, it was just an invoice and not a receipt, there was no indication of who bought this book or where the buyer is from.
Ches laughed at me as I expressed some frustration. In his wonderful (yet all too familiar) sarcastic voice he said, “Yes, it sucks to get new books, huh?” That’s not the point, I tried to make clear to him. The point is that I love new books and I love to read and someone is tapping into that but I don’t know who!!
I don’t have evidence that the PBB this time is the same as last time, so I’m just assuming since it happened once before it must be the same person. Until I know who it is and can send this person a proper thank you note, I suppose I have to use this blog to say a very public Thank You!! I’m very excited for this book and I appreciate the thoughtfulness you have for sending me something new to read on a subject that I will obviously enjoy.
I hate not knowing things. I think the PBB knows this and is enjoying the fact that this drives me crazy. Just when I had gotten over figuring out who sent me Twilight. Sheesh. 😉
