BTT: Holidays

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 got a bunch of new books for Christmas, and I couldn't be happier. Here's which ones made their way under my tree:

-Witch's Business by Diana Wynne Jones
-Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones
-The Year of the Griffin by Diana Wynne Jones
-The Letters of JRR Tolkein edited by Humphrey Carpenter
-Norwegian Folk Tales
-Russian Fairy Tales
-Folktales from India
-Irish Folk Tales
-Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat by Michelle May

I love getting books as gifts, but usually I ask for more expensive or eclectic titles, since I buy myself a lot of quick reads.

  1. I always ask for books! But only the ones I plan to keep as I get most of mine from the library.
    This year I got:
    - The Battle for Skandia: Book Four (Ranger's Apprentice) by John Flanagan
    - The Last Apprentice: Clash of the Demons by Joseph Delaney
    - A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander) by Diana Gabaldon
    - An Echo in the Bone: A Novel (Outlander) by Diana Gabaldon
    - The Singing: The Fourth Book of Pellinor (Pellinor Series) by Alison Croggon
