booking through thursday: gifts
posted by soe 1:58 am

booking through thursdayThis week’s Booking through Thursday question (on Wednesday night):

Barbara wants to know:

What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month)?

Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?

I love getting books as gifts. Love. I especially love it when someone shares a book they’ve loved (Karen is especially good at this), but am also happy when someone sees something that looks interesting and thinks of me.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to be thought of while in a bookstore?

I got three books for Christmas this year (not counting the Book Blogger Swap gifts I received last month):

  1. Hollywood Knits Style from my brother and his partner
  2. Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters from my friend Sam
  3. Shades of Grey, the new Jasper Fforde novel, from Grey Kitten

I will be tearing into the Fforde novel as soon as I finish The Complete Persepolis tomorrow (because it’s already a week overdue to the library…).

I can’t wait!

I received Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters from the publisher last year, but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I really want to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies first 🙂

Looks like you got some good gifts! I was a very lucky girl this Christmas! Here is my BTT response.

I’ve seen S&S&S, but haven’t read it — I don’t know if I want to though I’ve heard it is a lot of fun. I love receiving books, too.
