I received a subscription to Bookmarks Magazine, which I'm very excited about. Also a Barnes & Noble gift card and an Amazon gift card, with which I hope to buy masses of things for my Kindle. And 500 Pizzas & Flatbreads, which was unexpected but very me.
Fairest Vol. 1 by Bill Willingham
Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett. The family member who received this and I were making our way through the Discworld books back in 2011 and got sidetracked. I'm hoping to get this as a loaner from him later this year.
When Rain Falls by Melissa Stewart
You Are A Lion and Other Fun Yoga Poses by Taeeun Yoo
Bomb: The Race to Build--And Steal--The World's Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin This was a gift to the extended family because family lore has it that my husband's grandfather was surprised to receive a citation after WWII thanking him for his contribution to the making of the atomic bomb. Another family member definitely worked on a project in the 50s studying structures that could survive an atomic blast. His group's conclusion? There were none. Bomb is supposed to be passed around among us.
The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery by Nancy Springer
Skulduggery Pleasant: Dark Days by Derek Landy. I'm hoping to borrow this one, too.
Sew What You Love by Tanya Whelan
Growing Up Sew Liberated by Meg McElwee
Last, but not least, for the first time I gave e-books, sending them to family members who own Kindle Fires:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity by Joel Stein
Giving e-books, for Kindles, at least, is unbelievably easy. You can order them and have them delivered on specific days, such as Christmas. The books are sent between midnight and 3:00 AM, so the receivers found them ready to download Christmas morning before everyone else was up.
