In My Mailbox (8) - My Christmas Haul

Sunday, December 30, 2012 11:41 AM
In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. Every week, bloggers post the books they have received, bought, been gifted, bargained with the devil for, etc. Of course, Christmas was this past week, and Santa was very generous. He knows how much I love books! And at last, my Amazon wish list has decreased in page length. Finally! It's been way too long lately.

I had a wonderful Christmas, and I now have a lot of books to read! It's going to take me awhile. Plus, I also received Amazon gift cards and a Barnes and Noble gift card so more books are coming.

What did everyone else get for the holidays?
