Normally I don’t bother telling people about presents I get. But this time, I got two delayed gifts on the 2nd of January that amused me enough that I had to share.

They came from different places, and were bought by different people. They were, however, both something I found online and went ‘ooh I want this!’ and put on a wish list and waited (patiently) for someone to get them for me.

(And then the net taunted me with them, as other people shared pictures of their awesomeness online. Which is what I get for reading so much in the book-lover community, I suppose.)

But, finally, two people obligingly purchased them for me.

And now I am a proud owner of a Zipmark–a bookmark that looks like a zipper. From Israel, which is why it took so long to arrive.

And a Slaughter-house Five shirt from Out of Print Clothing, which is an awesome company that prints book cover designs on shirts and journals and bags, and donates money for books for people in need when you buy something.

Now I am a happy book nerd. 🙂

I hope you all get things which can make you happy beyond the moment of acquisition, whether they arrive on time or a week late.
