That's Christmas books I'm talking about here. And by Christmas books, I do not mean books about Christmas. I mean Christmas gifts.
Okay, let's see if I can recall this. Hmmm.
My sister and brother-in-law received a copy of Lamb, The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore.
Their son and daughter-in-law received Jellico Road by Melina Marchetta.
I sent my other sister a copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. Seriously, I don't think she's read it.
My mother got a book of short stories about dogs called Tails of Love.
I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President by Josh Lieb went to my older son. I also got him Make the Bread, Buy the Butter.
I got a book on making beaded jewelry for my daughter-in-law. But...ah...I couldn't even guess which one.
I know I got the younger son Worlds by Eric Flint, mainly because it includes a short novel set in the Honor Harrington universe. Also, it fit in a Christmas stocking.
Oh, and I also got my sister-in-law a LOL Cats book; but, like with the bead book, I no longer remember the title.
Of course, it is more blessed to give than receive. However, receiving is good, too. I got a copy of The Mediterranean Prescription, which I asked for because we go through periods when we eat dreadfully at Chez Gauthier, and we've been in one of them for a while. I also asked for and received Curse of the Wolf Girl by Martin Millar because I am such a fan of Millar's Lonely Werewolf Girl. Both books will be going with me on retreat week, which is less than two weeks away.
Share Your Loot: I wasn't going to do the whole "What I Got For Christmas" thing, but Becky Levine did, and now I'm thinking everyone should. If you blog about your Christmas books, post a link in my comments. Or just comment here about what you got or gave.
