On my way home I spent part of my Four-Eyed Frog gift card, and picked up a few more books. At home, I found another package waiting. Here are the Christmas additions:
The Cavalier in the Yellow Doublet, by Arturo Perez-Reverte; another Capitan Alatriste adventure.
Gilgamesh, the new translation. It’s about. . . well, it’s Gilgamesh.
The Book Thief, by Markus Zuzak. I think this may be a young adult book, set in Nazi Germany, about a girl who ends up rescuing books that are scheduled for burning at the big Nazi propaganda events.
I also bought the 2011 Tidelog, a book that lives in the glove box of my car every year.
