I got the new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas from my friend. It was a shock because I hadn't even thought of upgrading from my older version. I'm loving it and my daughter is loving my old Paperwhite.
I didn't get any books for Christmas, but I usually get a Christmas themed book for St. Nicholas Day. This year I got Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. Unfortunately, I didn't like the book at all. The newest Louise Penny book was a much better holiday read.

DH has gotten me books for the last several Christmases. This year was no exception. I think they're all from the used vendor Better World Books. 1. Lost In Translation, by Ella Frances Sanders. It has words from other languages that have no literal translation in English. 2. The Ravenmaster, by Christpher Skaife. It's about the life of a guard in the Tower of London who cares for the ravens. 3. The Witch of Willow Hall, by Hester Fox. It's been on my TBR list for a while now. 4. The Last Castle, by Denise Kiernan. It's about the Biltmore 5. An illustrated copy of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Edward Gorey did the illustrations! 6. Night Film, by Marisha Pessl. Murder mystery surrounding cult horror films. Not my usual genre but could be interesting. 7. The Intimate Bond: How Animals Shaped Human History, by Brian Fagan 8. The Book of Barely Imagined Beings: A 21st Century Bestiary, by Caspar Henderson. It concerns all the weird animals that exist in our world (and on imaginary). Things like tarsers and axolotls and other weirdlings.
Alas, I have a nearly finished library book and one right behind it that I need to tackle before I can read these, though!
I asked for and received three: A Polar Affair — I have an Antarctica obsession so was excited to find a new Antarctica book The One and Only Wolfgang — picture book from a guy I follow on Instagram who has a whole bunch of elderly pets The Humanist’s Devotional
