My eldest works at a Half-Price Books store and, naturally, that's where she purchased all the books she gave this Christmas. To me, she gave "The Knitter's Book of Wool" -- which was only released a few months ago, so I was totally not expecting. It was a thrilling score for us both!!
My youngest gave me two books -- the Emeril cookbook made me smile and remember that 'Emeril Live!" was one of her favorite shows when she was a kid. "Mother," by Maya Angelou, made me cry -- happy joyful maternal tears -- because she annotated it with her own thoughts and memories. Ya.
