Normally I get more gift cards than actual books for the holidays, but this year I got a lot of books. Since this post would be a mile long if I used my usual format of a picture of a book with a little bit about it/why I wanted to read it, I’m going to just write a list with pictures of some of them. (Now that the holidays are over, hopefully I’ll get back to writing some of those reviews I was working on too – I’ve read six books that I’ve not yet written about.)

Here’s the complete list (other than the book I got early that I already mentioned – the signed copy of The Snow Queen):

  • Fables: Legends in Exile (Volume 1) by Bill Willingham
  • Look to Windward by Iain M. Banks (Signed!!)
  • The Steam Magnate by Dana Copithorne
  • Lucifer’s Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
  • Ringworld by Larry Niven
  • A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge
  • Darwin’s Radio by Greg Bear (Signed!)
  • Crashcourse by Wilhelmina Baird
  • Requiem by Graham Joyce
  • Trouble and Her Friends by Melissa Scott
  • The Annunciate by Severna Park
  • Requiem for the Devil by Jeri Smith-Ready
  • The Book of Jhereg by Steven Brust
  • Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
  • Riddle-master by Patricia A. McKillip
  • Moonstruck by Susan Grant
  • Miles, Mutants and Microbes by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold

Looks like I’ve got a lot of reading to do! What did everyone get to read for the holidays?
