Books are our usual gifts to each other, and this year was no different. From nonfiction to fantasy, here’s how our gifts ran:
American Sphinx, less a biography (or hagiography) of Thomas Jefferson, and more analysis, according to the back cover.
Sanctuary Seeker is a historical mystery set in 12the century Britain.
Blue Lightning is Ann Cleeve’s 4th book in the Shetland series.
Be Like the Fox is a biography of Niccolo Machiavelli.
The Kingdom of Liars is a pretty new fantasy, garnering some positive reviews.
The Left-Handed Booksellers of London, a new fantasy release.
Lawless and the Devil of Eustace Station. This historical mystery, like Sanctuary Seeker, was a stocking stuffer gift.
The Solace of Open Spaces. I bought this on Brandy’s recommendation, mostly for the writer’s gorgeous prose, as she writes about Wyoming.
Serving notice on Spouse: I fully intent to borrow the Machiavelli book and I may even “borrow” it before he reads it!
