Christmas Presents!

Now, you know what I bought over the New Year period. Here are the books I received for Christmas! I thought to wait until now to let you in on which ones I gotten; so that I didn't bombard you with too many all at once.

We celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve... so yes, we had our Orgy of Greed (in other words, our day of opening presents) on the Eve of the day instead of the actual day. this is because the whole family wasn't going to be together on Christmas Day; and it was easier for us. The first book I opened was from Mum and called 'So Many Books, So Little Time' by Sara Nelson. And doesn't the front cover look like all of us at times! Well, if not you, it certainly feels like my life sometimes!

The next book was 'Fahrenheit 451' by Ray Bradbury. This book was on my Wish List on Bookcrossing for such a long time; and I did mention in one of the posts earlier that I wanted to get my nose into some of his longer work to see how it panned out. Well! I read it over the holidays - because it rained for a good part of the time while I was at the coast - and I gotta say, his work is absolutely addictive! This one was from a Secret Santa on Bookcrossing... along with a whole lot of other books! What a wonderful person!

The next book is one I bought for myself. I've thought nobody would buy it for me, so I went out and bought 'Under The Dome' by Stephen King and put it as from my budgie! haha... yeah, funny. But still, I've gotten my nose into that one over the holidays too. A good read so far! You'll have to excuse my finger being in the picture. The cover of my book curls up as it's a paperback; not a hard cover. Bummer, eh?
