Two Christmas Trees

What happens when you take a family of four book fanatics and turn them loose on Christmas?  You end up with a Christmas tree-sized pile of books to rival your Christmas tree:


Between the four of us, we received 24 books today.  Isn’t that awesome?  Can you guess what we are going to be doing all week?  (It will probably take longer than that….)

Did anyone wonder why there are two copies of Invisible Women?  This is because I bought it for Emma, and she bought it for me:

  1. I also got a copy of Invisible Women. I’ve been fascinated by the premise since i read an article about it earlier in the year. What a lovely big pile of books though! Enjoy them
