Every year I splurge and buy one book at Christmas. It is a book that I had read earlier in the year couldn't forget. This year it was Ahab's Wife.
I found a first edition hardback on Amazon.com for $19. I discovered this great read from Natalie - and although I was at first taken aback by the size and weight of the book, I was hooked by the cover and then the alluring prose. It makes me wonder how many other amazing books patiently wait for me at the library to discover their stunning magic.
My daughter made me a bookmark from our favorite wrapping paper that I just couldn't live without (thanks, Beth) and now I have it close to me every day.
You can find the eazy-peazy directions for the bookmark here.
What did you splurge on this Christmas?
