So what are the books, that you plan to get / give / read over Christmas? Any ideas for last minute book presents that you can share? Imho 2020 had an unusual amount of interesting new SF / Fantasy titles. Perhaps some authors used the spring lockdowns to get their act together (though sadly no Winds of Winter yet).
I've been trying to read more books so that something eats up my time other than Instagram scrolling, so I'm planning on Grapes of Wrath and Name of the Rose over the holidays.
Alright, I will add Watership Down to the list. If you read the entire Eisenhorn trilogy I would be an oathbreaking cur not to read it
I should really give Watership Down a try, but I just loved the film so much that I'm afraid it'll ruin the book for me.
I've been binging free audiobooks in the public domain recently. Listened to all 5 of Charles Dickens Christmas books. Christmas Carol for about the millionth time and all the rest for the first time. Really gets me in the Christmas spirit.
Did you know that Charles Dickens wrote three separate books about men who got visited by spirits around Christmas time and taught them the error of their ways? You'd think that the four ghosts in Christmas Carol would've been enough, but nope. Apparently he just had a massive hard on for Christmas ghosts.
Also recently listened to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Highly recommend both. ^_^
