books I got for Christmas

I love books. I got the following during Christmas or the holidays, most I had "wish-listed" in one way or another.

Of course, you'll notice most of these taking a while to show up in my "Currently Reading" list on the right. Still a pretty heavy queue, like always... and these aren't recommendations yet: I have to read them first. (although I gotta tell you, Douglas Coupland never loses).

ps - thanks again if you gave me one of these as a gift!
