Book Haul – Christmas Day

As bookworms, we all hope that we’ll get books on Christmas Day. I didn’t think I’d get many from the conversations dropped by various family members. However, I managed to walk away from Christmas with a total of 10 books. So far, I have read 1 of them and am currently halfway through another (this…
