I'm happy knowing there are at least three books for me in our pile o' loot. *sigh* Of course, just what I need -- more books! :)

And I bought books for several people as well. AND the Husband got a Border's gift card as a present. WEEE!!!!

Well, 3 may be literally true, but one *can* choose the wrong book for someone (even for me!). And 12, alas, isn't as true as I wish it were. I also think 14, 26, and 28 are doubtful.

Nevertheless, I'm with you. Books make the best presents. And I know of at least two that I'm getting!
