The bottom four books are Christmas presents from friends and family, the rest are presents from me to me, courtesy of the Borders that is going out of business on Michigan Avenue. (It's very sad, and the atmosphere of a closing-down bookstore is beyond depressing. If you're looking for some cheap post-Christmas reading, though, you should stop by - Michael and I nabbed 12 books for $10. Also, all the fixtures - tables, bookcases, shelves - are for sale at rock-bottom prices, if you need book storage.)
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my haul. Got some fiction, some humor, a hefty dose of biography and some general nonfiction. What about you guys?
