Christmas gifted books
About time for a post mayhaps?
First off, Happy New Year to everyone. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and enjoyed having a least a couple of days off. With this economy I know everyone is a little nervous. I’m hopeful that 2009 will be a better year for everyone.
By the way, we’re still busy doing family stuff on our side. Trying to fit a year’s worth of visiting into 3 weeks isn’t easy. Nor is eating all the delicious food… okay, maybe they are both nice. Heh. Family visits, especially extended visits, can be trying. Of course, after a thought like that you want to hug everyone and tell them how much you love them. Haha.
I have started a couple posts but realized they were going to take more time than I had, or that I don’t have the appropriate photos to include, so instead, I’ll just mention the interesting books I saw gifted or received this Christmas.
- Serena: A Novel by Ron Rash
- The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
- The Historian by
- Mario Hewardt and Daniel Pravat (which D received and looks really promising)
While I was out doing last minute shopping with my sisters on the Tuesday before Christmas, one of my dear sisters saved ALL of her shopping until the week of Christmas, I saw a few others that I’d like to read too, like Outliers and The Hunger Games. Both are hardback right now though, and since D and I are going to be moving (again) in 6 months (maybe), I’m holding off. I am going to love living again in a place where I can utilize a library.
