Books Under the Tree

Here are the books I got for Christmas this year:

End of the Sentimental Journey: A Mystery Poem (Infidel Poetics)

The Traps (Stahlecker Series Selection)
In case you can't read the covers, they are Sampson Starkweather's The First Four Books of Sampson Starkweather, Sarah Vap's End of the Sentimental Journey: A Mystery Poem, and Louise Mathias's The Traps.

Books I gave included : Peter Dickinson's The Tears of the Salamander, the Stephen Hawking's children's trilogy co-written with his daughter Lucy Hawking and including George and the Key to the Universe, George and the Big Bang, and George and the Cosmic Treasure Hunt, a field guide to the birds of Japan, and a non-fiction photo essay of leopard geckos.

What books did you get and give?

My son also loves those Stephen Hawkins book. I didn't know about the big bang one--so thanks! The Sarah Vap book sounds interesting...

Hi Carol--
The Stephen Hawkins book was for my nephew, so I'm looking forward to seeing how he likes them.

What books did you enjoy this holiday season (or are enjoying or looking forward to enjoying)?

Well, this year I bought for myself:
Incarnadine by Mary Szybist
Quelled Communiques by Chloë Joan López--but that has been sold out so I was disappointed, but will retry, and
Stay, Illusion by Lucie Brock-Broido. Can't wait!

I read Szybist's Granted this year, and can't wait to get to Incarnadine. Haven't hear of Chloë Joan López, so thanks for introducing me to her.
