Edgar Sawtelle and Catcher in the Rye, among others...

...but my favorite ones were the non-fiction offerings - I also got Sam Stern's Student Cookbook and the Wagamama Cookbook. Keeled over with happiness and hunger pangs.

I'm reading that now (Catch-22), it's really good!

I got:

-Catch-22.
-One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
-A Clockwork Orange
-American Psycho
-1984
-Animal Farm
-Lolita
-Anna Karenina
-Lord of the Flies

(I ordered them myself on Amazon )

Oh, and my mum received three books (two of which I gave her) that will all end up on my bookshelves eventually.
Great collection - I loved 1984 (and your sig made me laugh)


I've only got one this year:
The Interpretation of Murder by, Jed Rubenfeld. I haven't started to read it yet - maybe after exams

-American Psycho
Nice!

I will warn you that it is the most graphic book I've ever read... BUT these violent descriptions are infrequent and definitely necessary. Incredible novel.

Simone de Beauvoir - The Second Sex

782 pages of laughs. My mum's reasoning behind buying it for me was "John Lennon read it and cried"

Alright then.

i put quite a few on my list but didnt get all of them due to getting other bits i wanted, or them not being able to get hold of certain ones, i got more cd's and dvds instead this year.
i got a place called here and p.s. i love you, both by cecelia ahern and the runaway jury by john grisham (the film is awesome so wanted to see what the book is like). i also got the royal marsden book of clinical procedures, which i need for uni. as i always keep my christmas list and have got quite a bit of money for christmas im gonna go and stock up my book collection with the ones i didnt get for christmas and ones iv wanted for a while now

I didn't get any books for Christmas either. Now that I think about it, I can't even remember the last time I read a novel and not a textbook.
