Look What I’ve Got from twoChois!

Last week, I got a message from a Korean web store I had never heard about, asking me would I be interested in reviewing a Korean book of my choice, any book they had at the store, and they would give me that book for free. I was hesitant to accept the offer. I thought, it sounded too good to be true. Now, what did your mother say about receiving stuff from strangers? A big no-no, right?

I refused right away. But they insisted. So I checked their website, and I really like the Korean book selection on the site. If it were a scam scheme,  the website wouldn’t be so tidy and pretty, right? I actually want to shop there!

I e-mailed them a couple of times, and they always replied promptly, which is great for an online store. So I gave them my mailing address and I received the package yesterday. Wow, I can’t believe they really sent me stuff for free, and it’s from Korea!

A gift from Korea!

What’s this? A magazine? “10TEN Story” magazine? Wow! Kyaa…! I just ordered just the same one from another store! Ran to my laptop, canceled it. Done. Crisis averted. Phew.

There’s a hangul poetry written on it:
The sound of a wind-bell from afar.
It seems the wind has blown.

Happiness in a box.

  1. wow, that’s quite cool~ you are lucky! I would consider buying that book from twochois after I read your book, but again I hope to reach intermediate level by that time (like in a month or 2 or 3 or…..lol)
