Merry Christmas books

Although of course it was a pleasure to Give yesterday, it was also a pleasure to Receive, which I did--in the form of 12 books, 1 dining-room lamp, and my younger son agreeing to let me cut his hair.  Here are my books:

Magicalamity, by Kate Saunders
Snowfall, by K.M. Peyton
Wonders of the Invisible World, by Patricia McKillip
Crocuses Were Over, Hitler Was Dead, by Geraldine Symons
The Conjuror's Box, by Ann Lawrence
Oggy at Home, by Ann Lawrence
The Double Shadow, by Sally Gardner
 Reflections on the Magic of Writing, by Diana Wynne Jones
Magic and the Magician: E. Nesbit and Her Children's Books, by Noel Streatfeild
Hallucinations, by Oliver Sacks
The Unreal and the Real, vols. 1 and 2, by Ursula Le Guin

And, mostly for my own personal record, here is my husband's stack:

London's Overthrow, by China Mieville
Mortality, by Christopher Hitchens
Two Pints, by Rody Doyle
It All Turns on Affection, by Wendell Barry
The Penelopiad, by Margaret Atwood
Boneland, by Alan Garner
Bento's Sketchbook, by John Berger
The Ingenious Edgar Jones, by Elizabeth Garner
A Place in Time, by Wendell Berry
The Annotated Hunting of the Snark
The Holistic Orchard, by Michael Phillips

Merry Christmas!


  1. Excellent haul! Reflections is as brilliant as expected, and I also really enjoyed the second Le Guin collection. Happy reading!

  2. Lovely stacks. I'm intrigued by this one: Magic and the Magician: E. Nesbit and Her Children's Books, by Noel Streatfeild.
