This post is actually a combination of Books In The Mail and Book Buys posts which I regularly feature in this blog, but since this is Christmas season, I decided to make a special post for the bookish loot I acquired these past few days.
Let me start with my book buys. Actually, it is only a book buy because it’s only one book but still I consider it one great find from a sale bin:
A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan for only P25.00! I don’t usually buy print copies of books which I have ebook copies already, but I made an exception for this one for two reasons: it’s a Pulitzer winner and the price is simply irresistible. At first, I thought that the some pages might be missing or that there might be some defect on the cover, but no. The book is in pristine condition! Don’t you think it’s a quite a steal? 😉
And now, here are books that came through the mail. I am blessed to have very generous and gracious friends who sent me books for this Christmas season! (Hi, Maria! Hi, Ingrid! Hi, Cary!)
The first three from the top are from Maria, while the hardbound Barbara Kingsolver book is from Ingrid! Thank you so much! And then I got these very wonderful books from Cary, who happened to be my Kris Kringle mommy for the TFG Christmas Party:
Mina V. Esguerra books! YAAY! I can’t wait to read all of them (they’re just short reads actually, and I’m currently on a chick lit marathon) and be an ultimate Mina V. Esguerra completist! 😀 Thank you, mommy Cary! 😀
This is one of the best reading months ever, and to think that December has not ended yet. There might be more bookish items to add to this loot, who knows? Just keep ’em coming! 😀
Happy holidays, everyone! 🙂
