There is nothing more exciting than a bunch of books for Christmas (except maybe an autographed collectible movie script). I received gift cards from my brother, my parents, and a couple in our church this Christmas. Every cent of that gift money is now spent... all on books. I know, I'm sad.
Actually, no, I'm quite happy. Here's the list of books added to my library since December 25th... (alpha by author, of course)
The Memory of Old Jack by Wendell Berry
Lost In My Own Backyard by Tim Cahill
Petroleum Man by Stanley Crawford
We Are Still Married by Garrison Keillor (signed first edition[!] from my pal Will)
The Light of the Falling Stars by J. Robert Lennon
The Forest for the Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writer's by Betsy Lerner
The Green House by Mario Vargas Llosa
The Memory of Running by Ron McLarty
Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller
Drinking Coffee Elsewhere by ZZ Packer
Your Call Is Important To Us by Laura Penny
Shalimar the Clown by Salman Rushdie
Gotta go, lots of reading to do. Peace out.
