What books were you given for the holidays?
Here are the ones my family was so kind as to give me:
The Best American Short Stories 2005 (Best American Short Stories) Ed. Michael Chabon
The O. Henry Prize Stories 2005
Pushcart Prize XXVIV : Best of the Small Presses, 2005 Edition
(these I ask for every year)
Runaway Alice Munro
Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel Jane Smiley
Slow Man J M Coetzee (this one I've almost finished already)
Shopgirl Steve Martin (I thought I was getting this one, but didn't--so I bought it for myself)
I think I did okay. More to read.
