BTT- Jane Austen of Gor

btt button

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?

Normally, I prefer to buy books on my own.  I have put the word out to those who might be buying me a birthday present in June that I’d like a complete set of the works of Jane Austen, one where the books match each other.  I have so many books that I worry someone would give me a copy of one I already own or have read.

Having said that, I did get books for Christmas.  My LibraryThing Santa, youthfulzombie, gave me The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1) by Patrick Rothfuss and Patient Zero:  A Joe Ledger Novel by Johnathan Maberry, neither of which I had heard of, but both look really cool.  I also bought a book for myself from Amazon with Christmas cash my mom sent… lol… the title is a bit embarrassing:  Tarnsman of Gor by John Norman.  On SecondLife, there is a whole Gorean community, so I thought I’d read the first book of the series that inspired them.  Not sure how I’ll like it, though.

  1. Sounds like excellent book-loot to me 🙂 I was a very lucky girl this Christmas, too! Here is my BTT response.

  2. I read Patient Zero earlier last year! It’s a horror/thriller with zombies! fun read.

  3. The title of your post is funny!!!

  4. I hear the Gor books are awesomely bad. Certainly I’ve been told that my inner feminist will have a conniption if I read them. So I’m curious about what you’ll think of them. 😀
