In Which I Got Books

How was your holiday? Was it fun? Did you spend time with your fam? I hope it was rockin.

Mine was good, but too short, as always. It’s great getting time off from work, but it sucks when you then have to go back to work. Luckily this week and next week is a short week for me because of New Year’s. Yay!

I got a lot of books for Christmas. Which is awesome. It was especially timely because I had pretty much read everything on my TBR pile and was forced to scrounge around a bit to find something to read before Christmas.

Now, though, the TBR pile has been refreshed with 8 new books. And I LOVE it when you have brand new books and you want to read them all RIGHT NOW. Then you have to make a tough decision. Which great book should you read first?

But, that’s the type of problem I like to have.



Also, besides the gifts from the fam, I was also gifted with a brand new shiny idea. And I already LUUUURVE it. Seriously. Cannot wait to write it. But it’s get to sit and ferment for awhile while I’m working on edits for both Glimpse AND Break Free. I also haven’t given up on All That Remains either.

So, yay for good gifts from the fam and the muse!

What about you? Did you get any books you’re excited to read?

i didn't get any books for christmas, but i received a new method for reading them- a kindle.

so, while i've been trying to figure out the tech (because i can be a big dumdum) my hubs told me to go ahead a buy a couple books and try out the kindle!!!

so, i ended up getting two new books as well!!!! and THEN i found the free book thingy and now i'm going NUTS!!!! :)

Ahhhh, a stack of new books is such a pleasure. I'm happy you have a short work week and can dig in! I got one B&N gift card so I'll be adding to my stack soon.

First, my questions:
- What were the titles of your eight new books?
- Can you give a little, teeny, tiny hint about your shiny new idea?
Okay, no new books for me, but I have acquired a list of new authors and this excites me just as much. =)

I still have a dozen waiting for me on my iPad!
No new books, but I did get several iTunes gift cards - and shopping is half the fun.

I have at least four books on my TBR list. My goal is to save one of them for the plane ride home.

Yay for new books! I didn't get a single book or bookstore gift card this year, but I did get a KIndle so now I get to go shopping. :)

Love that you got gifted with a new idea, too.

DL Hammons said...

I just got one, Stephen Kings new one. As big as it is, it should count for three! :)

Sarah Pearson said...

No new books for Christmas but I won several in online competitions and giveaways so that's just as exciting :-)

And yay for shiny new ideas :-)

I got a gift card for books, which translated into many books to join my TBR pile. Congrats on the shiny new idea, gotta love when those hit!

I've still got one more Christmas on Saturday, but my to read pile has been well-refreshed as well (not that it's ever in danger of going away...).

Shhhh, don't tell anyone, but books were my favorite gifts this year. I've been waiting so long for some of them, and now I'm ready to sit down and devour them *BWHAHAHAHA!* Glad you had such a great Christmas, Falen. Hope you have an equally awesome new year!
