@Kayleigh I got that one as well! Read it in 3 hours straight yesterday, loved it!
I got £35 worth of gift vouchers for bookstores and my wife got me a second book case ?
so do you get to fill the wife’s bookcase? Or is she going to do that herself!
@Helen sorry just fixed my post lol my wife bought me a 2nd book case
Well that sounds better – you get to fill your own bookcase. Enjoy!
With that amount of gift vouchers, I doubt it will take you long to fill up your new bookcase! ?

You betcha ???
@Mary that’s a good present ?
Little Fires Everywhere! And I read it already lol ?
@Sarah ? aw least they know your taste in books ?
Pro-tip: in Goodreads, make you a shelf called “next to purchase”. They can peak in on that ?
@Sarah leave your screen open on that page ?
@Sean Ahem.. HINT HINT
Amazon gift cards. I will go shopping when the ruckus dies down. Family generally won’t buy books because they say I have too many. Probably right. Did contribute a bunch to a school; now down to 652 not counting kindle.
I got a gift card from Barnes & Nobles (Love the bookstore!) And I got the collected non-fiction of Joan Didion. First time I ever read something from her. I just finished two of her short essays: “On Writing Notebooks” and “On Self Respect.” I was missing out. Brilliant writer!
My family know I like a good book.
My wife gave me these books for Christmas. They’re both signed by Peter Beagle. The Last Unicorn has a cute doodle drawn by the author.
I got some money to spend at my favorite bookstore!!!!
Yes, I got two books from each of my two daughters.
All I ask for is books, all I get is also books.
I received Becoming, The Twelve Mile Straight and O’ Pioneers. My daughter also got me the book bag from Gilmore Girls.
also got Becoming and started reading it last nnight, shes a warm interesting writer.also Ruth Gader Ginzberg and sf book by Urlsula le Guin.
and Oh yes, A kindle.wonderful
I can’t remember a Christmas when I did not get books! This year I got The Idiot by Dostoevsky and The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton. I also got two 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles (which I also love) called I love Books and The Curious Bookstore). And I got a coffee mug which says “I am a book dragon, not a worm.” And a 2019 Reading Challenge!
$100.00 Barnes and Noble gift card from my amazing nephew.
A $50 gift card to Chapters!
Didn’t get any book related gifts, but I won a Goodreads giveaway on Christmas so it’s all good 🙂
my christmas books
I was given the Michelle Obama book for Christmas as well. My hubby got the Jackie Chan autobiography and I gave him the Martin Luther King autobiography so I’m keen to read those too.
I finally gave in and bought a Nook Tablet with Christmas, mostly for the sake of my eyesight. Regular print is getting harder to read, and it is getting for my painful hands to hold a book. I am really excited about this. Plus I will be able to afford more books this way!
4 books: Spoken into Being, The Mountain Between Us, Strong Poison by Dorothy Sayers, and Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
