Booksie's Shelves, November 29, 2022


Art by RF Skia and Culpeo S. Fox

It's the end of November and I've had a great reading month.  First, word on an oversight.  As you see above, I've added an artists' credit to the logo I've been using.  I thought it was a free image but I was mistaken so I'd like to apologize and make sure the artists, R.F. Skia and Culpeo S. Fox are acknowledged.  I've always loved this image so much.  I haven't done much Christmas shopping yet and I never know what to say when people ask me what I'd like.  What I love to get is an Amazon gift card or a gift card to a local bookstore.  It's pretty hard to surprise me with a book so I like to take the pressure off and do the book choosing myself.  My son sends me a list of what he wants so I'll be buying a stack of books for him soon.  Here's what's come through the door:
