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:
For all who celebrate the holiday, Merry Christmas! And to everyone everywhere, I hope you can snuggle up to a good book today!
How wonderful! A lovely Christmas to you all and happy reading!
Thank you, Joanna! Best wishes from the family!
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
I hope it makes for interesting reading. I think we have a nice mix of fun and interesting, novels and non-fiction.
Interesting pile of books! Please let us know what you think of Invisible Women and your other books as you read them? Merry Christmas to you and yours 🙂
Thank you! Merry Christmas (a bit delayed).
I love your blog. I would be SO excited to have all those books, especially Trick Mirror and wheesht. Thanks for posting!
Hi Shirley! Thank you so much for commenting! I’m looking forward to working my way through this pile (although the girls are likely to take their books home with them, so I better hurry up).
