Z now has a couple more easy readers and a comic, a Santa book, a book about the periodic table of elements (not pictured), The Lorax, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Henry Huggins, Stuart Little a Disney-Pixar story book and the latest from They Might Be Giants, Kids Go!, which comes with a DVD and is a book that promotes being active. I'm not quite sure how you read and jump at the same time but we're willing to learn!
K now owns
The Witch's Boy by Michael Gruber (a youth or YA fantasy)
The Oxford Book of Victorian Ghost Stories (for the next RIP Challenge?)
The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
Matchless: A Christmas Story by Gregory Maguire
The Cavalier in the Yellow Doublet by Arturo Perez-Reverte (the latest Captain Alatriste novel)
The Domino Men by Jonathan Barnes (set in the same world as The Somnambulist)
A Duty to the Dead by Charles Todd (first in a new mystery series)
The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie
I also had a gift certificate to the Oxford University Press shop so the following books are on their way --
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Casting the Runes and Other Ghost Stories by M.R. James
And I might have spent a little of an Amazon gift certificate this morning on --
The Professor's House by Willa Cather
The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa (and I didn't realize the silliness of those two titles in the same order until just this moment!)
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Sister Pelagia and the Red Cockerel by Boris Akunin (next in a series)
It looks like it's going to be a Dickens of a year for my TBR pile (insert groan at my bad pun here). I can't wait to dive in to all of these fabulous new books. This is going to be a year of reading off of my own shelves as much as possible and now I'm assured that they are well-stocked. And Z is going to have some great bedtime stories in the coming months. I hope the books on his shelves are ones that he will enjoy for years to come!
Now it's your turn. Share in the comments what books came into your home this season or post a link. We're curious!
Building a book fort,
