Books for My Birthday

My birthday was this week, and I am happy (but not surprised) that I got books for presents. My sister gave me Kristin Lavransdatter by Nobel Prize winner Sigrid Undset, a book that has been on my TBR list ever since I gave it to Sis for Christmas a few years back and she really liked it. Hubby gave me two books: Warlord: A Life of Winston Churchill at War, 1874-1945 by Carlo D'este and The Reagan I Knew, the book William F. Buckley Jr. was writing when he passed away. I look forward to both, but I suspect that Hubby may get around to the Churchill book before I do. But by far my favorite reading-related gift was from my sister -- a "mudflap girl for the smart set" decal:

I read a collection Churchill's speeches last year. I would be interested in learning more. And I've heard great thinks about Kirstin Lavransdatter. I hope you enjoy your books, and happy birthday! (belated.)

HBD even though belated! Sounds like it was a good one. (Love the literate mudflap cutie.)

Love the mud flap. If I had a truck and Laura would let me put flaps on it, that'd be the one. (Actually, she might insist on it, but I don't see a truck in our future.)

I've read the first of the Kristin Lavransdotter books, and it was very, very good.
