A surprise win to celebrate the blogiversary of Suzanne at Chick With Books, who very generously sent a novel, the first book in a manga series she wanted to share, and a Hummingbird bookmark which I will most definitely use.
The Japanese Lover by Allende on several blogs, including Suzanne's, and had it high on my wish list. Goodreads describes it as "an exquisitely crafted love story and multigenerational epic that sweeps from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during the Second World War."
Ooku: The Inner Chambers (Volume I) is by Fumi Noshinaga, published in 2009, and is one I'm sure that will get me hooked on reading more manga.
The Hummingbird Bookmark will save me from using paper napkins, pencils, combs, and sundry other things to mark my place in books. Thanks and congrats again, Suzanne!
