Book Blogger Hop December 28th - January 3rd: The First Indiction Began in 287 A.D.

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Did you get any books for Christmas? If so, name the titles.

I did not receive any books for Christmas this year. For the most part, people don't buy me books as gifts basically because my personal library is large enough that it is hard to get me a book that I would want that I don't already own. Instead I received gifts like a dice tray and matching dice bag. My daughter received a copy of Blueberries for Sal from her cousins.

I gave a couple of books as gifts. I got my son a copy of Taiko by Eiji Yoshikawa for Christmas. I got my daughter a copy of Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King for her birthday, which wasn't actually a Christmas gift, but her birthday is in December so it is a gift I gave recently.

  1. I normally don't get books for Christmas for a similar reason. No one knows what to get me or what I already have. But this year we decided to buy our own gifts so have tons of books (which I shared about on my book blog for this hop)

  2. I got giftcards for Christmas... They let me do my own book buying without people having to worry about duplicates! :)
