Four Christmas Books

I've already bought four books for myself for Christmas. I'm saving them to give to myself on Christmas morning, and I'll start reading them on the break:

1. A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe. I've wanted a copy of this book for many years.

2. The Lady in the Palazzo by Marlena de Blasi. I enjoyed her "1000 Days in Tuscany."

3. Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. Her books come highly recommended and apparently she is a novelist who actually has a little learning and intelligence.

4. A Vineyard in Tuscany by Ferenc Mate. Read about it on Amazon. We'll see.
