Bookish Gifts

I wasn't planning to post here until after the New Year, but I wanted to pop my head in and show you the fun bookish gifts I got for Christmas and my birthday (the 22nd). My MIL got me Bookopoly, which looks like a lot of fun. She also got me Big Susan by Elizabeth Orton Jones and the hilarious red lady on the far left, whose skirt holds one of my favorite quotations: "She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain." I believe it's by Louisa May Alcott, who penned one of my favorite books, Little Women. I received Strangling Your Husband is Not an Option by Merrillee Browne Boyack - you'll never guess from whom it came :) My mom gave me the fun cookbook, and my SIL gifted me with Barbara Taylor Bradford's Living Romantically Every Day, which looks fun. I also got book money that I'm very much looking forward to spending! Thanks, everybody, you sure know how to spoil a bookworm.


  1. Looks like you had a nice Christmas! I'm so glad you decided to post a little something. :-) I hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays!

  2. I got bookopoly as well! Pride and Prejudice is there, yay!

  3. The Bookopoly looks great. Enjoy your new treasures!

  4. Don't you just love getting book-related gifts! I got the 2008 Book Lover's Calendar, a Barnes and Noble gift card and Ken Follet's World Without End. But, my favorite book-related gift was from my sweet husband. He gave me a large sterling silver heart bookmark engraved with my initials. I've looked at the Bookopoly before but haven't gotten it, yet. Let us know how you like it.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
