The Books we Got for Christmas, 2020

Bottom Left to Right: American Sphinx, the Sanctuary Seeker, Blue Lightning, The Left-Handed Booksellers of London, Be Like the Fox, Lawless and the Devil of Eustace Square, The Solace of Open Spaces, The Kingdom of Liars

Books are our usual gifts to each other, and this year was no different. From nonfiction to fantasy, here’s how our gifts ran:

Spouse Got:

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.

I got:

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!
