A Christmas book has snuck in already! Actually, I’ve been drinking festive drinks and eating festive sandwiches for a while already, there’s no holding me back this year. Now that my birthday’s out the way, I’ve even started my present shopping! Of course, I got some books for my birthday, as well as the usual vouchers and cash, and some Qwerty t-shirts and the cutest cat money box ever (which we first saw in a cat video).
Work gave me Amazon vouchers, and despite already being surrounded by books, Josh suggested I check out the 3 for £10 offer. I was going to be good and get something non-book-shaped but with that kind of encouragement… There was a lot I had already read in the offer, so that helped, but I did find 3 off my wishlist and I spent the remaining on Sue Perkin’s autobiography and a Kindle copy of Red Queen.
I tend to grumble about all the biographies this time of year but I’ve gone and got two in one week. I’ve already read Felicia Day’s which I enjoyed, plenty of laughs and a interesting slice of history around the early days of internet and gaming. I’ve also already read Carrying Albert Home which is lovely and charming. Reviews of both coming soon.
