Charmed, I'm Sure...

I won a book from Libra Touches and it came in the mail today!

Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones.  I've wanted to read this series..but.. but.. around here all I can find are used (that's ok) but only mass paperback which is too small for me.  I was a bit frightened when I won this book that it would be a mass paperback but it isn't!  It's larger and double spaced and I'll have no trouble reading it!

Thank you again for having the giveaway Shanra!

Paperback: 272 pages
Publisher: Collins (December 3, 2001)
ISBN-10: 0007124074

It arrived! (And I get a shot of Boo in the process! I bet he figured out the main character in the book is called Cat!)

I'm so glad it arrived safely! (And you know I'd have sent you a new, non-MMP copy if it'd been such.) May you enjoy it as much and more than I did, love!

Most of her books are still out in trade paperback, no need to fear that. ^-^ It's just the American releases that like the mass market copies, I think.

As said (on my blog), though, the Chrestomanci series can be read in pretty much any order. Actually, all of her book series can. The Dalemark Quartet comes closest to something that 'must' be read in order and even there what connects the stories is an overlying story arc that's larger than the characters of any one book. (The last being the exception. Read the first three books in any order you want, but read the last book last. You'll get most out of it that way.) *ramble* Anyway, point is, if you find you like Charmed Life and want more of DWJ's work, don't let the series label be what stops you!
