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.
