A pair of cards worth reading!
The reading dog is a Postcrossing arrival from Novosibirsk, Russia. This sender thrills me not just by sending a fun card, but actually squeezing in a long, friendly note of substance on the back!
“…I’m from the heart of Siberia–city of Novosibirsk. I’m pretty interested in your hobbies–they are curious and funny. 🙂 I love reading and I already put the book you mentioned into my ‘must read’ books list. I also love exotic food, especially Chinese and Indian since I spent one year in China, can say I know a lot about its cuisine. I’ve chosen this funny reading dog for you. Enjoy it!…”
On the topic of reading, the second card, the card depicting Sikandra, near Agra, is from a swap-bot member in Virginia. The trade topic had to do with what we read in February, and she recommended Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekbäck:
“It had me spellbound, an insight to a harsh land and people trying to survive it in 1717 Swedish Lapland. It felt so real. One of my favorites so far this year.”
