  10. Santa didn't actually make a stop... my family and I had to skip it this year. I'm volunteering with the Air Force Auxiliary and leaving the day after Christmas, so the day was spent packing and relaxing... and a few brief moments of writing bliss. :)

  15. Merry Christmas!

    Santa gave me a bunch of gift cards. Perfect for me because I'm picky about books. ;D Santa forgot to get me Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Tell the Wolves I'm Home, The Rosie Project, Winger, The Book Thief, and Vicious. So many books! :P

  30. Santa keeps me supplied with books and I recycle them at the library and Half-Price books. Twice a month book sales at the library as a "Friend" offers funds for more books and special activities for kids of all ages. I bought 3 bags of books including fiction, non-fiction, and a cookbook which is new to me. One of the books is a slim one on budgets, so I stretch my dollars to include a steady diet of books to quell my voracious hunger. Santa is wise and doesn't forget much, for waiting a bit makes the holding of a new to me book that much sweeter. I didn't get James Patterson's A Little Funnier yet, but the new year looks promising.
