The Weaver Of Grass recently entertained us with a description of the books she'd received as Christmas presents. These were the books we received as gifts in this household:
Barack Obama's 2 books The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts On Reclaiming The American Dream and Dreams From My Father. He dedicates the 1st book To the women who raised me - MY MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER, TUTU, who's been a rock of stability throughout my life, and MY MOTHER, whose loving spirit sustains me still. On the page before the preface in the 2nd book is this quotation from the Biblical Book of Chronicles: For we are strangers before them, and sojourners, as were all our fathers.
2 books by Oliver James - Affluenza and The Selfish Capitalist. Affluenza has had great reviews and is about how capitalism and consumerism can endanger your mental health.
2 books about iconic country music singer Johnny Cash (I loved the film Walk The Line): Cash: The Autobiography and I Walked The Line: My Life With Johnny, a memoir by Vivian, Cash's 1st wife.
A Freewheelin' Time: A Memoir Of Greenwich Village In The Sixties by Suze Rotolo, Bob Dylan's girlfriend. I think you know I'm going to like this one...
Books aside, my wife also gave me this beautiful Ansel Adams calendar:
