The Broke and Bookish Secret Santa

I received a package from the broke and bookish secret santa today . I signed up for the Secret Santa exchange last month. It actually came yesterday while I was out . It was from Michelle Bergeron so Thank You! She sent me Lolita and Crime and Punishment . They weren't on my wishlist but I am happy I got Lolita. I had a chance to read this book last year on a myspace reading group but never did. I don't know much about Crime and punishment either but it looks interesting .
I also got what looks like an ornament but there is tea inside . It smells like candy cane , chocolate and peppermint all wrapped up in one. It's called Davids Tea and the tag says Santa's Secret :) How wonderful ! It's Chinese black tea, peppermint leaves, candy cane sprinkles, cloves, cinnamon, orange peel, and natural flavouring. I can't wait to try it.

UPDATE: I found out my secret Santa Victoria Bugdal @ Vicentine Design just got my package yesterday. She explains in a blog post what I got her and I loved seeing it in pictures . She's a great photographer. I can honestly say the broke and bookish secret santa holiday exchange was a success and I am very happy for the both of us . Yay!

Here's her tweet ...

    You got some great books and the tea sounds super yummy. David's Tea just recently opened up here. I think I need to finally check it out!
