Booking Through Thursday — Christmas Gifts

Today’s Booking Through Thursday asks, “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?”

I was really excited for books this Christmas, but I only got two: The Eyre Affair (delightful!) and Gaudy Night (which I hope is delightful!). This leads into the next answer: I got them because I asked for them.

This Christmas was all about getting what I asked for; my parents got a GPS for me and Scott to go geocaching with, and my younger brother the elder got me the books. The little one got me a purple wooden hanging thing that says “All-Star Sister” and has a soccer ball on it, which I didn’t ask for, but I guess the Holiday Shoppe is still limited in its selection.

However, I am signed up for several of those points-earning websites, and two of them came through for me just a couple of weeks ago, so soon I will have $15 to Borders and $25 to Barnes and Noble which will get spent basically as soon as I have the money in my hands. 🙂 It’s like a Christmas bonus!
