A Bookish Birthday, Part 2
As promised, the bibliophile gave me Anonymous Rex / Casual Rex, and she also gave me Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything. Since I loved The Mother Tongue, I have high hopes for this one.
The other party attendees also spoiled me, and I ended up with much-coveted Barnes & Noble gift cards to spend. I just finished Tamora Pierce's Trickster's Choice yesterday, and I loved it so much that I called the library and had them hold the sequel for me so I could pick it up after work. I decided it was high time I read the first set of Pierce's Tortall books, so tonight I redeemed half of my gift certificates for Alanna: the First Adventure and my own copy of Trickster's Choice.
Book birthdays are most definitely the best birthdays!
