liirogue | 4 comments I have no books but add, but I must say, I like your taste in books! I'm definitely looking into these.

Dani (kakwik) | 48 comments ...except for a signed copy of Winter's Tale, which just might have my name on it.

If you're talking about the Helprin book, I think I'd happily do evil for an autographed copy. (If you're talking about the Sabuda book, I said NOTHING!)

I've already received "Bones: Recipes, History, and Lore by Jennifer Mclagan" off my wishlist for Hexmas and since I know I'm under orders to not open any more Amazon boxes that may arrive for me, I'm expecting more. My prezzie-buyers have over 800 books to choose from on my list so all are welcome.

If I *had* to choose, I'd want the Annotated Sherlock Holmes set. That would keep me off the streets for a few days.

Julie My husband got me a stack of fantasy books. Many of the authors I've never heard of, which is so exciting, but the books are upstairs and I am downstairs so I can't enter them since I'm feeling incredibly lazy!

Dani (kakwik) | 48 comments Ohh! I spoke too soon (and that squealing you all heard last night was me opening the mysterious Amazon package that was on my doorstep when I got home)

~ The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Short Stories (2 Vol. Set) by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Leslie S. Klinger, and John Lecarre

Dani (kakwik) | 48 comments Oh my freakin' god. I can't believe I never searched for his site.

Thank you so much! I found some signed leatherbound versions on Abebooks but they were way out of my price range.
