Booking through gifts/ book blogger holiday swap

btt button


What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month). Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?

I do ask for books but I rarely get those. I didn't get any this year too. Except maybe for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson from my secret santa via book blogger holiday swap, which I received yesterday. It sure was on my wishlist!

How about you?

Congrats on receiving at least one fantastic book! I love books and received a ton this year, which is not the norm. I have gcs for bookstores as well, which are burning holes in my wallet.

It sounds like your Santa did good! I got a cookbook and an amazon gift card.

I got a lot of books this year. I picked them out and had them held on reserve. Here is mine

I want The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. My list is under a different meme at The Crowded Leaf.

Oh, I LOVE getting books but this year I got surprisingly few. Here is my answer:

Did you not get any because your family doesn't like to get them? That's too bad. My family doesn't read much, but they indulge me.

That one's on my wish list, too. I didn't get any books as gifts this year either, so I had to buy my own!

Like you, I very rarely receive books as gifts. I was a very lucky girl this Christmas though! Here is my BTT response.

I have that one next to my bed, I am waiting for the free moment. My BTT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/booking-through-thursday-my-first.html

I never ask for a specific book but I never turn down a gift card!!
