A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled.

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!) :-)
