Aarti said...

How funny- I saw your blog from a link on another blog, too :-) I am actually going to Egypt, and saw Palace Walk on your list of books for one of the challenges. I am taking it with me (hopefully my sister will be done with it by then), so I'll let you know what I think! I also have the second book in the series, Palace of Desire.

Cereal Girl Hello, enjoy the holidays, looks like it won't be a white Christmas here for us :( I will stop by and look for the meme, thanks!

ml And the best of the holidays to you and your family! Enjoy, enjoy! :)

Aarti Isn't the blogosphere a great place to make new friends? :) I'm jealous you're going to Egypt! We spent 10 years in Dubai and planned a trip to Egypt countless times but never ever made it :( A few of us will be reading "The Palace Walk" - it will be such fun to compare notes. Enjoy the trip!!!

Sylvia Awww, thank you for your kind wishes. If you find yourself in Toronto during holidays please say "hello". The best of the season to you and Derek!

Lotus Reads said...

Anali You're welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. You must have big plans for Christmas and I can't wait to hear all about them! Am going to visit you tomorrow - tonight I have too much tequila (those darn margaritas) in my bloodstream! :)

Joy Thank you for your lovely wishes - I wish you the same. May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

Lotus, Thank-you for the holiday wishes. The video, bookmark and card arrived. Thank-you for much for sharing. Husband and I will watch Water during the holidays, on one of those quiet, layed back days I'm hoping for, but will be lucky to have. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. Sorry about no snow - we have more than usual and it is beautiful. Now if it will just melt in Jan.

Princess Jibi said...

Lotus: Nice card, love the new look, finally I can read your blog... before it was all a mess for me... am beginning to think its my resolution or something...

Lotus Reads said...

I so appreciate everyone coming by to wish us for Christmas!

Danielle Lovely to see you here, hope your Christmas is filled with fun and cheer

Angela You must be so excited to be home for Christmas, wish I was! Yes, we will discuss "The Good Earth" in the New Year.

Grumpy Thanks for the wishes, please wish Mrs. Grumpy from me. We're not going on a trip, sadly :(

J Thank you! And the same to you, Maya and Py. Wishing you all the very best of the season!

The Traveller Thank you! I hope you are having a wonderful time...I wonder if it is snowing in England this year?

Something from me Welcome to my blog and a merry Christmas to you and yours. Thanks very much for stopping by!

Sugar Lips Wishing you and Nabeel the very best of the Holiday season! Nice to have "met" you this year and here's to another one!

Heather Happy Holidays to you and yours, too! Do you miss not having a white Christmas? :)

Booklogged So glad "Water" arrived safely. It's not a joyful movie so maybe you'll want to save it for after the festive season (don't want anything dampening your spirits!) :) I'm excited about the snow you got - have a very Merry Christmas, booklogged!

gopal Thanks for clearing up the mystery - I only knew you as gs! :) Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year. Wish I was in Mumbai for the 31st celebrations!

Princess Lovely to see you here! Hope you're having a nice holiday season so far. Made lots of sweets? Thank you so much for stopping by, the best of the season to you and your family!

Lol was in a convent school in India and was bombarded by Indian Christmas greeting cards - sure brings back memories. Have a fab New Year and A Merry Xmas too. Btw know something funny, all the books in your favourite list are my favourites too!! All of em..finished Kite Runner recently and it was amazing. If that was a debut novel, it gives me hope. Cheers!

Sonya said...

Nice card mom!

Lotus Reads said...

Hi, Nat and thank you! Did you get all your New Year's cards out on time? :)

Mellow Drama Delighted to meet someone with the same taste in books - would love to compare notes sometime! Season's greetings to you, too and thanks very much for stopping by.

Hey Son hahaha, so you've been reading my blog on the quiet, you little rascal, you! ;)

maggie said...

Oh my, this is lovely! Happy Holidaze to you too! :)

hellomelissa said...

i'm the 33rd comment (!), but i'm sending lots of love in it. have a warm and fun christmas with your family, lotus!

if i can ever get back to my reading lists, we'll have fun discussing "palace walk" and "the good earth" in the new year. i finally finished "inheritance of loss" but haven't gone back to your review of it yet to add my two cents.

tanabata said...

Hi Lotus, hope you're having a lovely Christmas!
As for my cards..on time? I have to admit that the last of them went out today!! So they've got a little less than a week to arrive- since they are New Year's cards. Oh well.

Sure you can Morthekai, it's such a lovely card and I wish I knew who to give credit to for the design. I just found it on the net. Anyway, wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and thanks for stopping by.
