Christmas is over and it’s time to talk about the new books. I didn’t get many books but the ones I got were exactly what I wanted. Actually one was on my amazon wishlist, the other one I talked about some time ago, but had completely forgotten. So I was surprised as well as pleased with my bookish gifts.
The first one is Alain de Botton’s “Essays in Love”, the fictional story of a relationship, starting with meeting for the first time until I’m not sure when, since I haven’t finished yet. But given the analyzing and reflecting that is going on I assume the ending is not an altogether happy one. I am going to read this for the relationships topic of the One, Two Theme challenge and I can already say that Alain de Botton, as opposed to Greg Behrendt, is my new hero.
The second one is “Horns” by Joe Hill. I am not a horror fan, but I read a good deal of Stephen King when I was younger and this second novel by King’s son sounds interesting, but at the same time not too horrible. I might be mistaken though, I can already see myself hiding under the covers, afraid to go to the bathroom at 2am.
So, what did everybody else get for Christmas book wise? Were you happy with your new reading material? Or did you get other book related items? Let us know!
