Since my friend couldn’t find the rest of his books (as I had mentioned in my other post) on Song of Ice and Fire Series to lend it to me, they (him and my other close friends) all decided that it would be nice if I had those books for myself rather than a borrowed one and gifted me a boxed set of e-books of that series as a very very belated this year’s or a very very early next year’s birthday gift and by the end of the evening, I got an email with my Gift. I am not great with receiving gifts even though I love gifting people. When I did mock my friends for not planning a gift for me this year (and that was almost 5 months before) never did I dream that I will get these books as gifts 🙂 I am so floored and honored. Thank you so much, folks. One of the best gifts I have ever received.
I have started on the 2nd book, but am taking it slow because work is getting tighter and I need to complete a whole lot before my week long vacation too. Between the books, the work and my health, I might end up taking it a little slower than usual in WP this week at least.
