Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible. Life Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year.  Reading Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Ra

Booking Through Thursday -- Gifts

Booking Through Thursday

This meme is hosted at Booking Through Thursday.

Barbara wants to know:
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 two books for Christmas from two of my groups in Goodreads - The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella (I love Sophie Kinsella, so I was really glad to receive this book) and Moloka'i by Alan Brennert (I have heard a lot of good reviews about Alan Brennert's Honolulu and Moloka'i. So this was a really pleasant gift!).

I prefer to buy books myself. I don't mind asking for a specific book, but usually, I like to walk into a bookstore, ogle at all those books and decide what to buy, rather than have someone deliver the goods to me (not that I don't like it!) :-)
