blessed days of anaesthesia,
a thousand splendid suns,
at the extremes,

Nineteen Eighty Four.... requested it ages ago and forgot about it so it was a nice surprise. It's a special edition anniversary cover too which is nice.

In Praise of Idleness, Bertrand Russell. A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking. Both look like good reads. Also two vegetarian cookbooks.

Put the Book Back on the Shelf - It's a collection of comics inspired by Belle and Sebastian songs.
The Celestial Cafe - Stuart Murdoch
I also got a book voucher, and I bought
Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami
Prodigal Summer - Barbara Kingsolver
I love getting books, I got 9/10 for my birthday in November so didn't get as many for Christmas, which is probably a good thing!

I tried not to ask for too many because I have a habit of buying too many books at once and then I take ages to read them all
Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
On The Road, Jack Kerouac
Selected Poems, Sylvia Plath
How to be a domestic goddess, Nigella Lawson
Asked for all of the above as noone in my family would have a clue what to get me otherwise

Just the one, actually: Don Patterson's book on reading Shakespeare Sonnets. However, I have got a helluva lot of amazon voucher money to spend, just need to decide on the books! For now though, I'm mainly trying to read classics as I have read shockingly few so school's large library is enough until I decide I love a book so much I need to hug it frequently...

In retrospect, why has noone given my books this christmas? I would be OVER THE MOON to receive nothing but books. But I have none =/.
Oh well, I suppose I have got the Kindle my dad got me for my birthday, so shouldn't complain. Books are so exciting though!
