Christmas haul

xmas_giftsI tell you, it’s the devil’s own job trying to persuade your loved ones that what you want for Christmas is some smelly old books. However, I can report a success: four brand-spanking-new second-hand books were received from Mrs Offences on Christmas morning.

Being no stranger to delayed gratification, I’ll have no difficulty in gradually opening them throughout the year, so you’ll have to pay close attention to find out what they are.

I hope your stockings were all appropriately filled over the Christmas period.

    I’m happy to report that Mr. Reader’s Block (and my Chip Off the Old Block) spoiled me rotten this Christmas. Between them and my parents, I scored 56 new-to-me vintage reads (my book haul here:

    Happy New Year!
