Some new books- or new to me bookd

I once had a huge collection of books. Downsizing, gifting, and changing interests changed this. Now, we are planning to move in perhaps a year. My new book collecting habits are influenced by all of these things ( as well as a very limited book budget, as I plan a trip to Europe this spring). So, now I buy used and paperbacks. I read and pass on, unless- and I still have my piles of books that I want to keep and re-read. I do try to find a hard cover copy of these books.
So, without further explanation, are some photos of the books I was given or bought with Christmas money:
Well, I have two more piles, but LJ is being fussy about uploading my pictures. I will try to post more later.
Hope everyone had a great New Year!

Europe in the spring -- I am so excited for you! It is a trip that Jon and I hope to make when he is retired, if not a bit sooner.

Love your book stack. I also like to have hardback copies of favorite books. And speaking of favorites, I see that you have Possession, which is my all-time favorite novel. Funny, I was just thinking that maybe I should do a reread soon.

A very happy New Year to you!

Just saw this post and wanted to return your happy new year wishes! I liked Possesed, and had to read The Children's Book - I read your review of it and agree. I have a friend who reads all the Man Booker prize winners and recommended both. I did enjoy each. I'm currently rereading "A the Ladies of the Club" and love it. Funny what insight comes when you reread a book that you read 20 years ago!
