What was your favorite Christmas present?
This was mine!
Gone with the Wind is my favorite novel and this is my third copy of it. Hopefully the one I'll end up keeping.
My first copy was the one I got when I was fifteen. I read it so many times that the book fell apart, and no amount of Scotch tape would keep it together.
My second copy stayed with me for several years, until I started tutoring a student in English Literature. She wanted to read more but wasn't sure where to start, so I gave her my copy of GWTW and we watched the film together.
After that I didn't have a copy of my favorite novel. I would eventually have bought myself one, but there are some books ahead of it on my to-obtain list - books that I haven't read twenty times over. So I was surprised and thrilled when a friend gave me a copy (she also gave me a Transformer, but GWTW edged that out).
What was your favorite gift?
Also, final grades for the semester arrived in time for Christmas!
