We all got books for Christmas and it was great.
I got Patches of Godlight and Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon. Her Mitford series has been an alltime favorite of mine and Home to Holly Springs is a new series.
I also got David McCollugh's Truman. It is a fantastic book and I'm glad to own it. I had previously read it through the library. Truman is my favorite US president and the book is very detailed and well researched.
Hubby got Weird Carolina. I urge you all to get the "Weird" book for your state. We were loving looking through it and finding all the "weird" stuff in our area.
Daughter got all 3 books in the Golden Compass series. Walmart had them all bound in the same book for $12.95. Not bad at all. Looking forward to reading it.
I also got a Breath of Snow and Ashes which is the latest (like a year ago) in the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon.
I got Bad Dogs Have More Fun. Looking forward to reading it. It's by the same guy that wrote Marley and Me.
I got Letters from Nuremburg. Another great book I've already read, but wanted to own.
Also My Father's Secret War which I am excited about as well.
Life lessons from the dog, which is hysterical. I urge you all with dogs to get it.
And my husband got A brief history of time and the universe by Stephen Hawking, so he was thrilled.
I plan to spend the cold winter reading. The books I got are fairly large, so they should keep me busy.
And I understand my daughter's bf also got us books, so we'll get those when he gets back from Florida.
It was definetly a bonus Christmas for reading in our house! Gotta love it!
