You'd think people in our lives did not know us, not getting any books for Christmas. Ah, well. I know I will get some for my birthday. If nothing else, the library's monthly sale is the Saturday before. *grin*
LOL on the "man books." The titles sound like they were some pretty heavy, possibly dark, action/suspense novels. I too like reading those on occasion, but not as a steady diet. Sometimes you need a good romance to lighten things up!
I'm actually about to start the latest Kay Hooper, The First Prophet -- defiitely not a "light" read, but I have plenty of those to choose from when I am done.
