Not really a “pile” this year, just the one book. (A book that I’m quite excited to read, since I absolutely loved The Martian.) I received some other excellent Christmas gifts, including LEGO’s Women of NASA set and a beautiful framed photo set from my spouse. I’m still working on last year’s books, plus an extra bunch sent mid-year by fellow blogger Leah, so I’m not in any danger of running of things to read any time soon.
Little Boy got a more pile-like quantity of books for Christmas. The picture above includes only the new stuff; my mother also gathered up a half-dozen books from my childhood and sent them home with us. (She also found and gave us my old Sesame Street sheets and my brother’s Thomas the Tank Engine towel, all in remarkably good shape.)
What are you looking forward to reading this year?
