There's no better gift than books, and this year for Christmas I got:
The last three books I was missing in John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee Series: A Deadly Shade of Gold, The Scarlet Ruse, The Green Ripper
Collection of H. P. Lovecraft tales (Library of America edition)
Two cookbooks: Bake Until Bubbly and the Williams-Sonoma steak and chop cookbook
The Ultimate Guide to Martial Arts Movies of the 1970s
David Thomson's Biographical Dictionary of Film
Merry Christmas to me!
