I know I am about two weeks overdue on this post, but we all know how busy this time of the year can be - family commitments, vacations, shopping - all that good stuff. Anyhow, I got two fabulous books that I had on my Christmas list from my lovely sister: 1001 Books to Read Before You Die and Audry Niffenegger's The Midnight Book Mobile. Both are new, which is exciting for me since I buy almost all of my books used.
I'm super excited about 1001 books because it's basically a Bible of books. Each of the books featured on the list are included in this book, as well as interesting photos and critical insight.
Each title is listed in chronological order, from earliest publication year to the latest. I was also lucky enough to get the revised and updated 2010 edition.
I couldn't be more pleased. I'm sure I will discover many wonderful new authors this year.
