At the very beginning of the year just ended, I promptly endeavored to give you, my gentle snowflakes, an orderly account of my book acquisitions for 2008. Since I found this listing personally useful for a number of reasons, I started to work on a new book report as 2009 drew to a close, the first part of which appears below. There is much to report indeed, but in this first installment I have chosen to highlight, as a token of my sincere gratitude, those books I received through the kindness of others. The next installment(s) will then list book purchases for the year.
As you might remember, last year I won 3 books during Shaun Tabatt’s first annual 12 Days before Christmas Giveaway. Well, I am pleased to report that, thanks to the good offices of random.com, I won some books in Mr Tabatt’s giveaway this year as well! Here are their titles:

My thanks to Shaun and the respective publishers for making these available!
Some of these I purchased with gift cards given to me on various occasions, others were brought to me from overseas at my request, and yet others were thoughtfully chosen as gifts; all came from beloved family and dear friends. To all of them, my heartfelt thanks for your kindness!
