I got a few books for Christmas, and these are them:
The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman's slim new novel for 2013.
The Revised Vault of Walt, a book by Jim Korkis telling untold/secret/amusing/odd stories related to the vast Walt Disney empire, which appeals to my twin loves of scuttlebutt and business.
And Joan Aiken's The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, first in a series I've been meaning to read for ages and ages. Now that I have a copy of this in the house, it might actually happen.
I also got the big new Mystery Science Theater 3000 boxed set -- the gala 25th anniversary thingy with four episodes that haven't been on video before, plus two that were individual DVDs and VHS tapes, back in the before-time. That's not a book, though, so it doesn't get a picture.
A blog has to have some rules, after all.
(I got other things as well -- the obligatory socks & underwear, a PS3/Grand Theft Auto 5 bundle that I bought myself, Grand Theft Auto 4 for the previous and also bought by myself, and some other knickknacks and gewgaws that I either can't remember or don't want to be bothered listing here.)
