The Girl actually received more books than I did for Christmas, and she wants me to list those first. She also received a Barnes & Noble gift card, so she'll be going book shopping very soon.
From her Auntie Serena and Uncle Cris:
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, a Longman Fiction Simplified Edition for middle-grade readers, of which I could not find a picture....and....
From her godmother, who is a third-grade teacher and has given her books every year since she was born:
Shooting the Moon by Frances O'Roark Dowell, which she'll be reading for the Vietnam War challenge at War Through the Generations
Miss Spitfire: Reaching Helen Keller by Sarah Miller
Fairest by Gail Carson Levine
The Circle of Hanh: A Memoir by Bruce Weigl, which I'll be reading for the Vietnam War challenge at War Through the Generations
A purchase I couldn't pass up at just $2.97 (I know, I know, I was supposed to be buying for other people!):
The Devil's Arithmetic by Jane Yolen
A contest win from Savvy Verse & Wit:
