One Of My Favorite Gifts This Christmas.
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (And the Crusades), by Robert Spencer.
Actually, I received a Borders gift card. (Love getting gift cards!) The girlies got gift cards, too. We went to the diner for a bite to eat and off to the bookstore we went.
The 10 year old got a little painting kit called OptiArt. She has learned the hard way that she must paint words backward and finish the foreground before the background on these little glass pebbles. The 6 year old got a field guide to edible plants. Just last week she asked if there was such a thing as a book that could tell a person about edible plants with pictures in it. Voila! She is very, very happy with it!
And Lucky Me got the P.I.G. to Islam! I have been skimming through it and I can hardly wait to get into it. Right now I'm finishing up The Honourable Schoolboy - that has not been an easy read. I have been enjoying it but it's not a book that one can just blow through. Westerby may just get out of this little pickle yet. I'm rooting for him and the girl and I never stop rooting for Smiley.
I hope that you received some nice presents, too!
