katherine_b: (DW - Doctor Christmas)
posted by [personal profile] katherine_b at 09:53am on 26/12/2008 under
So I have been a very spoiled girl this year. It was a very booky Christmas:
Mark Roseman's The Villa, The Lake, The Meeting, which is about the Wannsee Conference in 1942
Hélène Berr's Journal, which is the life of a young Jewish woman in occupied Paris
Richard J. Evans' The Third Reich at War which is a huuuuge tome about the role the Nazis played in German life before and during the Third Reich
Ernst Schnabel's The Footsteps of Anne Frank which is one of the earliest Frank biographies and is very useful for my thesis
Ross Dobson's Kitchen Seasons about cooking with organic food
The Mythbusters Encyclopedia

Aside from books, I also got:
The Doctor Who Series 4 Complete DVD
The DWM Series 4 Companion
A set of pistachio green saucepans and frypan to replace my motley collection
Skin cream
A beautiful silver bookstand
A tin of German gingerbread

I hope everyone's day was as lovely as mine. A delicious lunch, a very pleasant time with my extended family, and - best of all - no arguments. Not one.

Perfect!

(Oh, and watching the World Latin Dance Championships in the evening...)
