Between presents and book sales, this is the time of year where I greatly augument my shelves. (The rest of the year my buying is a touch slower.)
For Christmas I received TALES OF BEEDLE THE BARD by J.K. Rowling. So far I have bought myself (I'll update this list as I buy more):
GENERATION DEAD by Daniel Waters
TANGLED WEBS by Anne Bishop
CATCH-22 by Joseph Heller
I WANNA BE YOUR JOEY RAMONE by Stephanie Kuehnert
CONFESSIONS OF A TRIPLE SHOT BETTY by Jody Gehrman
ARTEMIS FOWL: THE TIME PARADOX by Eoin Colfer
BLOWING MY COVER: MY LIFE AS A CIA SPY by Lindsay Moran
HAPPY HOUR AT CASA DRACULA by Marta Acosta
GIRL SLEUTH: NANCY DREW AND THE WOMEN WHO CREATED HER by Melanie Rehak
THE SOCIETY OF S by Susan Hubbard
In addition, you can still help others receive books this holiday season.
The Book Blog a Holiday campaign hosted by the Bookwish Foundation raises funds to buy books for Darfur refugees. They seek a dollar donation per book received as a gift. More can be found here.
Chelsea (The Page Flipper) and Lauren (of Shooting Stars Magazine) have moved their Leave a Mark auctions to a separate blog. (Link corrected - thanks Chelsea!)
One of my favorite charities is Inside Books, previously blogged about here. I've met the people running this and know they're on the up-and-up and sincerely want to help.
So tell me what books you've received (or bought)!
