A welcome surprise

Zeltus acquired a load of audio books and shared them with me, and amongst them was the napoleonic chronicals written by Julian Stockwin starting with Kydd. I took these on a couple of MP3 players on the recent trip to France.

Thoroughly enjoyed the books, and decided to look up the author to see if there were more books in the series. Having found the website, I signed up to receive the Bosun's Chronicle which is a tidbit of information about seafaring and whatnots etc. No sooner that I had done this I received an email saying I had been selected as the 'fan' to receive a mystery package which arrived on the doorstep forthwith.

As well as a leather bookmark, a couple of postcards showing naval scenes and a book entitled Maritime Miscellany which has been signed by the author.

I feel very lucky indeed.

I am a great fan of audio books, having een introduced by my freinds Hazel and Kim who are both blind. I find them absolutely invaluable when driving and very relaxing when sewing. That was a lovely surprise for you.
