Many delightful surprises on the very first day of 2010:
Two of my favorite book bloggers included RUDE AWAKENINGS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT in their best-of lists for 2009.
Apart from that, there were giant bulldogs, fairies on horseback, origami creatures, and all manner of wondrous beings roaming the streets of my town. In others words, the Rose Parade! Well worth dragging myself out of bed at the crack of dawn to see.
May the new year bring you much happiness, health, prosperity, and MAGIC!
