Books for Christmas

Because books make the best gifts...

Here are the books that I got for Christmas:
~ The Black Book by Orhan Pamuk
~ The Black Tulip: A Novel of War in Afghanistan by Milt Bearden
~ The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint
~ The Coffee-House: A Cultural History by Markman Ellis
~ The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 13) by Lemony Snicket
~ The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood
~ The Princess Bride by William Goldman
~ Trader by Charles de Lint


  1. That's a great list of presents! The Pamuk and the Coffee-House books sound particularly good.

  2. Yes I thought someone will give you Black Book, so I thought on something else ... sadly you know how that ended *sigh*

    great presents!

  3. Looks like some good reading ahead for you. I loved the one and only de Lint book I read, so I look forward to your thoughts about The Blue Girl.

  4. Hopefully I'll be able to read some of these books relatively soon ;)
