    Wow! Great gifts. I’d love to read Eating Animals – I liked Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close a lot.

    Wow! The books are all wonderful! It was interesting to see the very short introduction to Science and Religion ๐Ÿ™‚ The fur edition of Dave Eggers’ book looks interesting! Nice to see Tolstoy’s ‘Anna Karenina’ too. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it when you get to read it. It was also wonderful to see Wodehouse’s ‘Right Ho, Jeeves’ ๐Ÿ™‚ It is one of my favourite Jeeves books ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes – after reading your review of the Dixon book, I added it to my wishlist. I’ve actually read Anna Karenina, but it was before I started blogging so I don’t have a review. I just wanted a new translation since my copy was pretty old.

      I’m listening to Right Ho, Jeeves already and absolutely loving it.
